I am so pleased to have the opportunity to thank Heather, the Funeral arranger, and Richard who co-ordinated the service on the day for their helpful, sensitive and professional attention in making our mother's funeral exactly what we wanted for her. I cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention they took and of their contribution in making a potentially sombre occasion one of joy and celebration. We are grateful to you and your team and will certainly recommend you without reservation. Thank you.
