I would like to say an enormous heartfelt thank you for the compassion and help offered to our family by the Atherton team. The flowers, casket, memory cards,drivers, all staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for Diane and all the staff we spoke to. Everyone we dealt with were so understanding of our needs and our additional requests and we couldn't have wished for a better send off for our mum. What a fantastic team you all are, it made a very difficult time much easier, so we could concentrate on our grief. Extremely thankful to you all 😍 I apologise it's taken so much time to send the review you deserve. Thank you once again from all our family.
