This isn't just a personal note of thanks to express my appreciation of your help, kindness and professionalism in connection with the death and funeral arrangements of my beloved mum Joan Suiter.

It was great knowing that I could rely on you for everything - this made that sad time easier to cope with. 

Thank you sincerely

I am writing to express our appreciation of the manner in which Danny Langstraat managed this very sad occasion for our family.

From the first visit on the Sunday following my husbands death, he was empathic but carried out all the necessary arrangements in an extremely efficient and professional manner.

We were all very impressed with him and nothing was too much for him to manage. Even when we decided two hours out from the service that we would like it recorded, he manged it all with great aplomb.

The recording is a wonderful memento we have of an amazing celebration of Mike's life.

A number of family members and friends have commented on how impressed they were by the mature demeanour of Danny throughout the funeral process, and I found his quiet management during this time to be of immense help to myself.

All the people we dealt with were excellent. As a family we do think that Simon Manning has superb skills and it is very comforting to deal with someone like this at such a time

As the dust settles around here I wanted to make sure that I connected again with Alistair and you to thank you most sincerely for your work and care over the time of the funeral arrangements for Paul Bergin. It is a real pleasure to work with your firm and the service you provided for Paul, his family and us was magnificent.

Alistair is a real winner! He never gave the impression that the 3,492 requests we made of him were a pain in the neck as no doubt some of them were. Could you please pass on our thanks to him and our appreciation not only of his complete professionalism in everything he did for us.

It is great work with such kind and compassionate people at your firm. The Society of Mary really values our association with you.

Paul's Vigil and Requiem went extraordinarily well. Everyone I spoke to just loved being a part of them. Your firm made that possible from beginning to end. Thanks again
