Thank you for a beautiful service you provided for my dad. You made the event personal to him and everyone commented how lovely it was. I have had so many comments on the poem I chose, so thanks for suggesting it.
Hello Christine just would like to say a big thank you for doing the celebration of dad’s life yesterday. It was so perfect. And you did it so well. Thank you for your care towards us all and we will never forget that. My son said how lovely you were to him after the service. I appreciate that so very much Christine. Thanks again for making our day so much better with your kindness.
I was concerned about how Auntie would react to our unconventional idea. Later in the day she said to her children, “That was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. You must do the same for me.” Most definitely a thumbs up there.
I’ve started to read your script and I can hear you reading it all over again, its so heartwarming reading it and seeing you standing there in my thoughts makes it all easier to read, thank you so so much.
Thank you for having the amount of patience you had with us all. It is still a difficult time for some of us.
You were amazing on the day. Whole hearted thank you for bringing our Celebration of Life so alive. It was beautiful.
Thank you so much for a lovely service you arranged for mum, everyone was so impressed with everything.
It was a truly amazing day. Once again thank you.
I would like to send you our warmest thanks for supporting us on Friday. All the family feels you interpreted our wishes perfectly and your sourcing of relevant quotes linked our themes exactly as we wanted.
What families say about funeral celebrants trained by green fuse
“I wanted to sincerely thank you for the reading at my mother’s funeral which I found to be very fitting and appropriate. My mother was not religious and would have been pleased with the service. Many people later told me that there were many aspects of my Mum’s life they had not known about and enjoyed learning more about her.”
“Just to tell you how much I appreciated how beautifully you arranged and conducted the service for dear A. It was inevitably sad, but simple, appropriate and deeply moving. Your opening words were an excellent account of his life and a marvellous tribute to him. The whole occasion will be a treasured memory for us all”.
“As you can understand I never dreamed that I would have to be doing this for my son at his age of 27, but from the moment you came to our home you put us at rest and made the funeral look so different – rather than frightening, a celebration.”
“Although it was a funeral it was not at all sombre and your eulogy captured the essence of what my Mum was about. You really did make it the loveliest, happiest funeral I have ever been to and many people commented on this tone which ran throughout. It’s weird but it has taken away much of the fear of death for me – it is another part of life therefore she has just moved on. With much thanks and love”.
“Thank you, that was a beautiful and fitting service, just how my son would have wanted. You have made me feel so much better listening to all the things you said about him and how he was so loved by everyone.”
“Our family and Dad in particular thought the ceremony totally fitting and your words fully appropriate. You wonderfully captured the spirit of my Mum. It takes a talent to be able to sense a person’s soul. Friends of my Mum commented similarly and as you could see were moved to tears. I think it makes it easier to move on and focus on the future knowing Mum was laid to rest as she derived and as you said in closing, her spirit will always be with us. Huge thanks for making what can be difficult times so comforting and memorable in such a positive way.”
“Thank you on behalf of all the family for your beautiful service of our dear mother. Your prayer and final words of committal eased our pain and reaffirmed our belief that Mum is part of the next stage in all our existence. I especially would like to thank you for your support of me that enabled me to give my tribute to Mum. It meant a lot to me and to many present. ”
