Funeral testimonials

Dear Susan,
Just a note to say again how grateful I am to you for accepting to carry out my Dad’s service. I’m so thankful that I had the strength and insight to say no to the first person presented to us. You were the perfect person to deliver the right words and Kerry and I really appreciated your openness to being realistic and authentic. You struck the perfect balance and we are so thankful to you for your hard work under the time pressure. You’re a true professional and you made the process so much easier.
A heartfelt thank you to you. I wish you all the very best.
Many blessings from New Zealand

Dear Susan,
I’m so sorry that it’s taken me nearly a week to thank you for the lovely service you wrote to celebrate the life of my father-in-law, Leonard. It really was lovely and he would most definitely have approved. Quite a number of people, who celebrated his life with us, passed comment on how beautiful it was and how perfectly it summed him up.

Jackie is coping well and would like to pass on her thanks for the great job you did and for the lovely card you sent her after the funeral. Really thoughtful!

Kind regards

Dear Susan,

I wanted to write and thank you for conducting the ceremony at our late Mother’s Funeral. We have had a number of compliments from family and friends saying that it was a very fitting send off for Doreen.

Never an easy time for Family and Friends but I would like to thank you on behalf of the Family for helping us all through the service, very much appreciated.

It is difficult to believe that 3 weeks has passed already, it still feels as though it was all just 5 minutes ago.
Once again, Very Many Thanks and we all wish you the very best for the future.

Kind regards

Dear Sue
Allan and me are in Spain,have been away for a few weeks to recharge our batteries. Still trying to come to terms with the sudden death of Mike. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. All the family were touched by the way you conducted the ceremony for our brother Mike. You handled it with respect,care and humour. All our friends remarked “it was as if you knew him”. How lucky we were to have you. I’m sure you will continue to guide others through what is a difficult time for everyone, as compassionately as you did for us. Once again thank you.
Regards and very vest wishes to you.

Warmest wishes

Sue, I just want to say a massive thank you for organising and leading the service on Tuesday. Both Michael and myself felt that it could not have gone better, and was true to Carlena’s wishes. A large part of that was down to your professional and caring guidance, input and support – I felt I knew from the moment that we spoke on the ‘phone that you were the right person for us, and so it proved.
In addition to your planning, the perfect words and delivery, the recommendations for the Vale Royal Crematorium and the funeral directors (who were brilliant on the day) were also great.
Thank you
Peter, July 2017

My apologies in the delay in writing to thank Sue, Chris and Fleur with all the help that was given to the family by you all.
You all made a difficult time easier to bear.
Sue, the service was excellent – thank you. Several people who were there remarked in particular about the way you led the service in a calm, gentle manner which they responded to with their own personal emotions.
To say thank you, as well, for being there for Laura especially, you manged to allow her to carry on herself with the reading just by laying your hand on her arm.
Chris and Fleur – silly but true – thank you for the humour you allowed us have.
Dad is missed more each day but thanks to you all his passing will be remembered with love, affection, humour and dignity.
Thank You
Regards, Lesley, June 2017

Thank you for your services last Friday – we all feel that you gave Joan the type of funeral she would have wanted, conducted in a smooth and dignified way, without being stuffy.
Regards, Roy, Janet, Susan & Family, May 19th 2017

Hi Sue
Thank you for your card and kind words. Happy New Year to you and all the best for 2017
Sorry I haven’t been in contact but it’s been a bit hectic. I was going to send you an email after the service but with one thing and another it just slipped my mind.
May I say it was a lovely service you gave for my mum. I think she would have loved it and I had quite a few comments from family and friends saying how lovely it was.
Thank you again for everything you did for me and my family
Best wishes, Yvonne, December 2016

Dear Sue,
Just a little note to say a big thank you for all that you‘ve done for Dad and me over this past two weeks. Mum had made the funeral planning so straight-forward for us, but it was still such a relief to find such warmth and care from you during our meeting, and such attention to detail in making sure the service was right for us all.
I’ll admit I was apprehensive to hear Mum’s words read out by a relative “stranger” on the day, but you read them beautifully and captured Mum’s ‘tone’ – allowing us to hear her in them, and both laugh and cry.
Your whole approach on the day was so supportive and professional it really helped get us through the toughest of moments, so thank you.
Kind regards, Jo, August 2016

Thank you so much for your kind words, the reality has definitely hit me these last few days.
The service was lovely and just what my dad would of wanted so thank you again.
Kind regards, Diane, June 2016

Many thanks Sue, the service was wonderful and was just like Frank to a tee, everyone said, as funerals go, it had a real warmth
Kind regards, Sue Taylor, February 2016

Many thanks Sue, for making the memorial service for Alan so special – you really captured who he was. It was lovely to hear the funny stories about him again, and although it was an emotional afternoon. we all enjoyed your words”
Kind regards, Julie, Porthmadog, June 2015

Dear Sue,
So many people commented on the funeral service saying how well it went and I was more than happy. There are quite a few people who have said they will want to book your services when the time comes so your reputation has certainly been enhanced. I would love to see you again whenever you are on the Park.

Sue recently presided over the funeral service of my mother in law, Sylvia. Sylvia was an atheist, as am I, and what I really appreciated was that the service acknowledged people of faith without alienating them.
Thank you Sue, Belinda

Hi Susan
Just a quick thank you for a lovely service for Stan, it’s hard to ‘enjoy’ such a moment but it was a nice celebration of his life. On behalf of both sides of his family, thanks again.
Regards, Bryan

Hello Sue,
Just a big thanks to you for Dad’s funeral, it was perfect!
Best Regards, Freda & Mark

My mum recently died and Sue Williamson conducted her farewell. From my first meeting with Sue she was very sensitive in discussions relating to my mother’s service. She was also very comforting and reassuring at this most sad and difficult time – which my family and I very much appreciated.
Thank you so much Sue. All good wishes for the future.

Many thanks for presiding over Sylvia’s farewell; it went really well. The service was exactly what Sylvia would have wanted. No pomp’ and fuss but a simple and dignified farewell.
Many thanks again and if we can provide you with any references or testimonials please do not hesitate in contacting us as we will certainly recommend you.
Best wishes, Paul
