Thank you so much for the full service script and for your kind words. The service and tribute you gave was so lovely and even more so in these difficult circumstances, it really felt like we celebrated Dad’s life and your support at this difficult time has been unbelievable. C

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, 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! Mary, you are a special person and I feel blessed to have found you in my hour of need. With much love and gratitude. J

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 x

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 xx

Hello Mary, I want to thank you so much for such a wonderful ceremony. M would be thrilled, it was perfect and everyone kept asking us where we managed to find you.  You spoke with such knowledge and sensitivity, knowing your facts as I know you did your homework beforehand. I know that K was well pleased with how it turned out.  I felt very connected with you; you are clearly a very special person. Warmest regards, A

Dear Mary, We are writing to say thank you once again for the magnificent job that you did for us at D’s funeral. Your skill and commitment to holding and supporting us and everyone there against the pain and the elements was wonderful. We could not have done it without you. Thank you also for facilitating us so carefully and expertly through the weeks of sometimes painful preparation. You did this with huge empathy and great focus. We appreciated it enormously. We will always treasure your patient and very personal involvement with us at the saddest of times. You have helped us to grieve constructively and in doing so; you have helped us to face the future positively. D,B&L

Dear Mary, Once again, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful tribute service that you did for P on Thursday. Everyone said that it was fantastic. Some of my mother’s friends have even gone off to rewrite their funeral arrangements so they can have a similar thing.  Everyone agreed that it was how P would have wanted his funeral to be. One of our young friends even made us laugh because as she left the crematorium building she said “I bloody loved that, get me Mary’s no. So she can do the same for me!”. So thank you again, for making P’s final departure & celebration of his life very special indeed. Warmest Regards CW

Morning Mary, I just wanted to send a massive thank you for yesterday. As promised, you gave mum a very special send off. One lady could not believe you did not know mum, that’s how personal it felt. I heard nothing but high praise for the service, it was perfect and you delivered it amazingly. M tells me she got your card – now that’s planning ahead! Thank you for everything. Kind Regards ST

Hi Mary, I didn’t have chance to speak with you after the service but wanted to just say a very big thank you from all of us. Your support, guidance & empathy really helped us during such a very difficult time. Thank you also for handling the service so beautifully, it i

Dear Mary, A big thank you for the gentle and perfectly balanced service.  It was not maudlin but uplifting in that F is now where she so wanted to be and that came across loud and clear.  Again, thank you, Mary and God bless. With love, A X

Dear Mary, Thank you so much for sending me a copy of the Celebration Service – what a lovely thought.  It is so nice to have something like that to keep and to reflect on in the years to come. It really was a lovely service Mary and you did J proud! Best wishes SP

Hi Mary, You did us & Dad proud, like you had known him forever. Best celebration I have ever been to and it was our B, our Dad. Love J

Hi Mary, Thanks so much for your lovely words and for what was ultimately the best goodbye to grandma I could have expected. I really appreciate you sending that over and I’m sure dad will also appreciate you sending it. Thanks again, J

Dear Mary, Thank you so much for that record of D’s funeral. You took threads of information and wove them together beautifully. You put so much into what you do. That pouring wet day you made your way to the Club and the cemetery, all of it much appreciated. Hope to catch up in the meantime.  L
