Messages from Families

Thank you so much for this Mary. It is lovely to read the service in full. You helped and supported us in ways I couldn’t imagine. Your grace and calm made a difficult and emotional day much more manageable. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. Kind regards, K

I can’t tell you how many people have complimented the service and said how lovely and personalised it was. So many people thought that you knew my Mum from the way you spoke about her. And that’s because you spent so much time getting to know as much as you could beforehand and because you cared about the service being just perfect for my Mum. We’re so grateful for the attention and care you put in to it. Best wishes, A

I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of myself and my family for the wonderful service. I cannot begin to tell you how many people came to us afterwards and made such nice comments and said how lovely they thought it was. For me it was the way you told Dad’s story as if you knew him but with only the limited information we gave you, it made it so much more personal. Thanks again and kind regards, S

Thank you for delivering the lovely service. Everyone commented on how nice and uplifting it was. You captured V’s life just right. It was a pleasure meeting you too. Your professionalism is second to none. Many thanks again J&D

 I would like to thank you again for taking lead in S’s service. Everyone who attended commented on how beautiful the service was and how nice you were. The service couldn’t have gone any better, S would have been very proud.  Kind regards M

Thank you for guiding us through the proceedings at M’s funeral. All who attended commented that the send-off was a fitting tribute to M and your guidance added greatly to the solemnity and dignity of the occasion. Kindest regards and best wishes D

We cannot thank you enough for all your help and the excellent job you did leading G’s service. You perfectly captured the essence of him, and we could not have asked for more. We were delighted with it. With kindest regards D, S, K and S

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday, you made N’s service so beautiful, you really took so much care to look after us and showed so much compassion. You are a very special person, thank you so much. K

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful service for my darling N. I have received so many messages from N’s family and friends around the world, who if restrictions were not in place would have been there yesterday. They have all said it was a beautiful service, and that even though they were not able to be there in person, they could feel the love in the room. Thank you so much for all the guidance and support you offered to help me achieve the wonderful tribute to T. You are truly a wonderful, caring, and empathetic lady. Thank you. K 

Where do I start? The biggest THANK YOU really isn’t enough to express my gratitude for delivering such a lovely service for Mum. So many people said it was one of the best funerals they’d been to. I also wanted to tell you that so many of my friends & especially my cousins watching on the webcast said how lovely it was that you made a point of speaking to them as well & they all felt very much involved & part of the proceedings. Thank you Mary. Thank you so much. Love L

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all your help. You have guided, nurtured and supported me through this process with such love and care…and a little bit of fun! You are a special person and I am blessed to have found you in my hour of need. With love and gratitude J 

Thank you so much for hosting the funeral of our dad and husband, P. You truly captured him and it was though he was speaking through you. Your delivery brought on both tears and laughter, something that was so important to dad. So thank you for helping bring his final wishes to fruition and thank you for making the day run smoothly. You bring solace to a lot of people and that is a wonderful thing. Thank you for being you. Warm wishes P’s family. 

You were of huge emotional and physical support to us last week and I can’t thankyou enough.  It was good that the sun shone as we laid R to rest, a very fitting tribute to a man who liked being surrounded by green fields and having a warm sun beaming down. Your presence kept us together at such a vulnerable time and despite the many tears I felt comforted by your brilliant eulogy of R. Thank you, you are certainly a blessing to have around when a family has to endure such an extremely distressing event. Namaste, M

Everything you said and read was heartfelt and full of compassion, most especially my message to my Mum. I thank you for that. I enjoyed the sincerity of the Service.  Thank you so much for making April 16th so special. Sincerely, P

On behalf of our Dad, D and myself, we just wanted to say a heartfelt ‘Thank you so much’ for the most amazing service and farewell that you so lovingly arranged for our Mum and Wife. If there is any chance that she was looking down on us all, I personally know that she would want to thank you too. The actual service went by in a bit of an emotional blur for not only us, but others too – and now having had the chance to relive it on the webcast, we can really appreciate how special and personal you made it for us. My lovely auntie B (Mums sister) has actually said that it was the best service she has ever been to – being in her 80’s, she’s been to a few! Mary – you are amazing. Kind regards B, D & J

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have had you by my side through all of this. Just knowing you are there made a big difference than I can ever explain. Thank you, S 

To say thank you so much for helping the funeral go so smoothly I have had nothing but praise about how you handled everything – thank you. J,S,L & S

Thankyou so much for such beautifully written script. T and I feel so blessed to have met you; nothing was ever too much trouble. You really are an angel in disguise Mary and we cannot thankyou enough. Take care – T & L

On behalf of our family Mum and I would like to thank you for yesterday’s service.  We felt that you struck just the right balance and each one of us found something personal and touching. We appreciate your care and attention to detail.  Also your efficiency and good-humoured patience with us. Kind regards J

The service was wonderful, I really appreciated you leading the service, especially after meeting Dad. He was a good man and didn’t deserve such bad luck. Your words were delivered with the perfect tone, a little humour just as he liked nothing too serious. All the best S

You were absolutely amazing in what you said and did for my mum. We are so pleased that it was you Mary who had the responsibility of delivering such a beautiful service that felt so personal to us. Everyone we have spoken to who was there have all said it was so lovely and that it was a fabulous send off. Kind Regards D&G

Thank-you for organising and delivering such a lovely service for D. Everyone commented on how well you managed the funeral service and loved the tribute which you delivered so poignantly. Once again, many thanks for a lovely service. Kind Regards TH

Dear Mary, We would like to thank you for the beautiful service you gave for J yesterday. We could not have wished for a better way to say goodbye and you have given us a lovely memory of what would have been a very sad occasion with your words and thoughts to express how we felt. Thank you once again, D&S

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful tribute you wrote for my Nan. Her funeral will always be remembered for all the right reasons. Best wishes D

Hi Mary, I just wanted to write and thank you for the tribute you delivered yesterday for T it was very moving and everyone I have spoken to who was either there in person or joined via live stream said it was very special. It was a difficult day for me and the children but you made it easier for us to say goodbye so thank you very much. S

Dear Mary, Thank for leading the service so well. Everyone has said that it was a fine service – and much of that is down to the way that you helped us shape it and then brought it together on the day. Best wishes, P

Dear Mary, thank you so much for today, you did our mum proud. You are a shining star in our family’s eyes. Love to you always, Y 

I can’t thank you all enough for your support during this most difficult of times. You have  in your different roles, found ways to make this almost bearable. The respect and kindness you have all shown has been much appreciated and I will never forget your kindness. Thank you so much. With love L
