I just wanted to thank you so much for being the celebrant at my father’s funeral yesterday. I know that Gareth had every confidence in you after you met him last week and it was well-founded. I really wanted to meet you with him but it just could not be.
I so appreciate the thought and effort that you put into the eulogy and the calm and sensitive way that you delivered it. I particularly liked the Dryden that you added in. My father would have been particularly pleased that a woman was the celebrant- he had very clear views about equality too.
Once again, thank you very much
A wonderful wonderful celebration of my husbands life. Helen was truly amazing. Talented, efficient, loving, friendly, and so supportive. It made the day so special. I have had letters after letters raving about the day. I cannot recommended her highly enough.

Just wanted to reiterate my sincere thanks for your contribution to Friday’s service. It really was everything we could have wished for dad; I’m sure that he would have approved 100% of the content and tone of the service. We received so many compliments on the success of the day and much of that was down to your calming supervision of proceedings and your sensitive and appropriate choice of words. I am certain that for many of the congregation it was the first time to experience a non-religious service, but I am also sure that it will have opened their eyes to an alternative means of saying goodbye to a loved one. I do hope that you get lots more inquiries as a result; I’m sure that your services will be in demand.
Inevitably for all of us in the immediate family, there is a tremendous feeling of relief as well as a tangible sense of closure at getting to the end of the funeral service. However, the net result was not just relief, but also great satisfaction and happiness in the knowledge that we had fulfilled dad’s wishes so completely (with the exception of the cardboard box, that is). All that I can say is, thank you so much for all your help in making that happen.

I just wanted to write a short note to thank you for everything you did yesterday and those days before.
I was floundering somewhat before we met at Starbucks and having your experience and calm just helped me to focus on the task and send Kathy away in celebration of her life, not mourning at her death.Bruce, Usk Chase Castle Natural Burial Ground, February 2017
I am just writing to thank you on behalf of Sarah Lewis and Jessica for conducting the service of their Mother and Grandmother. Although a small service you made it dignified and warm. I think it must be harder performing your duties to a small group than a large group.
Sarah and Family were very happy with the service and went with her Mothers wishes. Once again thank you for your kindness.Owen Williams, September 2016
On behalf of my mum and family, I should like to thank you for all of your support , guidance, and assistance in the arrangement and officiating of my father’s funeral. We were made to feel very much at ease during our initial meeting with yourself and were very glad that you took the time to discuss not only my father and the funeral process but my family history and the small details that tend to humanise what would otherwise normally be quite a difficult time.Phil Hopkins, October 2016
