Dear Darren and team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to deal with the loss of my Mum. You have been like a lighthouse guiding me through the worst storm of my life. There are no words that say exactly how grateful I am to you all. You are amazing and have somehow been able to give me fond memories of saying farewell to someone I loved and cherished. Much love.

You have all been very caring and considerate and your guidance got us through a very difficult time, nothing was too much trouble.

  Thank you all very much for what you did to make my husband Lew, Pauls Dad`s funeral how he wanted it to be for Lew. Lew`s Passing was unexpected so it was a big shock and is still a very difficult time for us. We miss him so much, but find comfort knowing he is not in any pain and is at peace now. You carried out our wishes right down to the last detail and we thank you for that and what you all did in making his funeral special.

To everyone who looked after Maurice and all of us at this sad time. Thank you all for making such an occasion a bit more manageable. I would like to say a special thank you to Simon for his care in taking the time to make Maurice look so good. He was just as he would have liked. Smart, and to see his hair, nails and eyebrows done was so good. The service at Banbury was very good. I thank you Darren it was perfect. Last but not least Natalie for all your help in those first painful days, and anyone else who played any part in making things go so well. Kind regards to all. .

To Darren, Natalie, Helen and all at Hancocks. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance in arranging Matt`s funeral. We could not have wished for a more personal approach. Matt looked at peace when we saw him on Monday. The way he held the letters was especially touching. So many people commented on such a beautiful funeral service for such a special young man, who was taken from us far too soon. So, once again, thank you all.

Love and best wishes
