On behalf of us all I would like to sincerely thank you for leading our goodbye to Mum at Clayton Wood last Tuesday. It was a beautiful service - moving, whilst calm and peaceful, and we very much appreciated your sensitivity and thoughtfulness. From our first communication, you put us at ease, showing interest in each of us individually, and encouraging and guiding us through our preparation for last Tuesday and the service itself. Your friendly, gentle and caring approach has helped us greatly at this time. F.B.
Thank you for all your understanding, help and kindness in steering us through organising G's funeral to the point where we actually came to understand what we wanted. The outcome was a wonderful service that you conducted with such warmth and inclusiveness, that was a celebration of G's life. So many people commented on how impressive you were. We are now able to look back on the ceremony with happiness, through the sadness, which is an outcome we never thought possible. A.W.
Frances was our celebrant yesterday, she was magnificent! With an enormous amount of planning by her, for us, she organised us in our grief; with sensitivity and honesty, which culminated in a triumph of our day of celebration. She set the perfect tone, a balance of respect for my wife with the grace, humour and dignity required when addressing over 60 people. A truly amazing day, I can't recommend Frances highly enough. D.H.
I could not have said goodbye to my husband without your help. You were there for me every step of the way and I can't thank you enough. The service was a beautiful celebration of his life and just how I wanted it to be. Your care and compassion gave me strength at such a sad time. H.S.
I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of myself, S and J and our families for the way you conducted the funeral service for our mother yesterday. We all felt it was a great send off for Mum and one which would have made her very happy, and that was in no small way down to your professionalism, sensitivity and understanding. Many thanks again from all of us. T.O
Please accept our heartfelt thanks for contributing to making Dad's funeral such a dignified and meaningful ceremony. We felt throughout that we were in experienced, professional and compassionate hands, with just the right balance of measured sensitivity on your part. I think Dad would have been very happy with the send-off he was given. N.M.
