“Just wanted to email to thank you again for helping us with grandpa's funeral. It was a beautiful service and the time and care you took to make this personal to my grandpa by listening to his music and the beautifully written and spoken service. When I read the poem I got nervous and stumbled over my words as it's nerve wracking, and it was only my family! Whilst you said you are new to the role in the last year, you were fantastic. With funerals being so final this means a lot. It felt right to have you there saying bye with us as you had got to know him - or about him for this short time too. I am not sure how things work if you are independent and advertise, Nicole from coop recommended you. I'd be happy to leave a review if that's something that's done, or would help you.”

I especially also appreciated your gentle encouragement to my Grandson in advance of his reading the poem - a family moment which will long be remembered. Sincere thanks and kindest regards, P.S please do feel free to use this as an open testimonial in full or part in any way that is helpful to you in the future”
