Thank you so much for a lovely Humanist Ceremony. It was a first for me and a lot of people who attended. You obviously put a lot of work into it, which was very much appreciated.

Funeral for John

I thought I would take the opportunity this morning to thank you on behalf of the family.
We all felt the telling of Frank’s life story had just the right tone of celebration. Not too sad. Even the music seemed right.
Thank you again.

Funeral for Frank

Just a short note to say a huge thank you for the delivery of a beautiful service. Mum said it was just how she hoped it would be! Francine and I totally agree.
Thank you again for giving Dad such a beautiful send-off.

Funeral for Frank

Thank you very much indeed for helping us to celebrate Pip Pope’s remarkable life ; my sister and I and all Pip’s friends thought that she could not possibly have had a better good bye and a large part of that was thanks to you. Far from being downcast at her loss, we felt quite uplifted by your words.
With very, very many thanks.

Funeral for Sevi

Thank you for arranging and delivering such a lovely service. Your sympathetic and attentive approach to planning the service were a great help to us in creating an event that was a fitting tribute to a wonderful person; the manner in which you conducted the service struck the balance between acknowledging her loss, celebrating her achievements and the joy she brought to others. Whilst this is very much a personal thank you from us, I do want to let you know that everyone we have spoken to who attended the service has said how impressed they were with the content and presentation.
