I just wanted to say thank you so much for Friday. It was the funeral that we had hoped for, full of stories about Dave, and focus on the wonderful things that he has done in his fairly short life. You portrayed the person that he was perfectly.
It was a truly memorable day.
It was amazing. Everyone said how beautiful it was and how it described mum perfectly. Thank you very much for everything.
The service was simple and beautiful, just as we wanted.
Several people who came have since said to me that's how they want their funeral to be. Thank you again.
On behalf of my family I would like to thank you with all my heart for yesterday. You made us smile both inside and out with what was said about my Dad. It was more of how you came across warm and like you actually knew my Dad. It felt very personal and for that I cannot thank you enough.
I have been out all day so please do not interpret any delay in responding as any criticism of yesterday. Far from it. I could not fault any aspect of B's funeral yesterday. The tone you set was perfect in every way. It was not too somber nor too joyous, it held a middle ground which was exactly what I was looking for. It was respectful and was a true reflection of B. The praise from all who attended was universal and it has certainly raised a question in many minds about how they would like their own funerals to be conducted.
My most heartfelt thanks to you for conducting a ceremony that by its very nature can never be easy.
