From my father, sister and myself, we can't thank you enough for everything you have done.
You made everything so easy, from making us feel ok to stay in our pyjamas, sit amongst her heirloom roses, to driving back and forth between Picton and Sydney, nothing was too difficult, thank you!
We only wanted what mum would have wanted, and because her death was so sudden, you helped us workout what that would have been.
You have given us the gift of the right farewell and for that we are very grateful.
Lou. Picton, Sydney.

From Charlie and myself, thank you so much for everything you did for us for Dad's service.
The day was emotional but celebratory, informal and beautiful, exactly what we had hoped for Dad. He really would have been so chuffed and moved by it all.
His brother said to me that night it was the nicest funeral they had ever attended, and it was exactly how he would want his own to be one day. So very high praise indeed. Our mother was very moved, and I've also received a lot of very lovely feedback from our friends.
If you have any photos of the day could you please send them to me, I would like to forward to my uncle in Stockholm & the food too!

Good morning Kylee,
Thank you for sending the beautiful keepsake from Judith's farewell.
We've heard back from so many people, all of whom felt that Judith's ceremony was perfect.
It couldn't have happened without your perfectionist eye and obvious care and consideration for our Judith.
Thank you again for all your hard work, we can't thank you enough.
Katherine, London via Sydney.
