I have found over the years the key to writing a unique Funeral Service, is really listening to the family and working with them to reflect their loved one and who they were, tell their story and celebrate what they have contributed in this world. Sometimes people are surprised with the outcome and didnt really anticipate how wonderful a funeral can be. It is important to say goodbye and thank people for what they have shared.
Over the years my families have sent me words of thanks, here are some of the comments:
Thank you for making the day a splendid tribute to my Dad, it was an amazing day.
The Ellis family
Just to say a very big thank you for making the day so wonderful, everything was perfect!
The Eldridge Family
You managed to include us all and reach out to the whole congregation, you are very good at your job and helped us through a dreadful time, thank you so much. You even wrote an amazing poem !
