“The family wished to thank you for your supportive guidance throughout a very challenging time. The Eulogy and Service on Friday were lovely and a wonderful representation of who my father was and how he lived his life.

Everyone attending commented on how the Service was both dignified and compassionate. I believe that this helped my mother greatly especially in this difficult period of grief and sadness.

Thank you for liaising with Tony when I wasn’t available – we both felt that your professionalism shone throughout!”
