"Thank you so much, for the service this afternoon..... it was truly lovely. We've had some lovely feedback and somebody said that they wanted their funeral to be exactly the same!! You were wonderful, thank you". Nicky
"My husband’s death was expected and as a family, with him part of the conversation, we had all talked together of how his funeral would be, what did he want or not want? Throughout it all, from first being asked to conduct and arrange all this, Mark listened well to all our requests for this and that, and wove it all together very well. He led it all so meaningfully, guided by all we wanted for this very significant occasion."
"Today's service was the best service I ever heard and that was down to you so thank you so much for doing that for us"
"On behalf of myself and the family we wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful celebration service you put together for my dear brother, it was such a fitting service for him it was as if you had known him all your life. I had loads of feedback from people praising you and the way you presented yourself so kind and caring it has been a great pleasure meeting you and we are so glad we chose you we would highly recommend anyone to use you for their service. Once again many thanks"
"Just a message to say thank you so much for providing us and my mother with the best service anyone could have asked for. Your dedication and professionalism is a credit and example to us all. Thank you so much, you have given us wonderful memories of the day. In addition you appear to have melted the heart of one particular member of my family who I understand will send you her own message of thanks."
"We were really pleased with the way you conducted the service, and the same goes for the many guests who’ve spoken to us about it since — everyone thought that it was a fitting occasion that truly did justice to Dad. Thanks for that and for everything you’ve done for us throughout."
"Many thanks for sending a copy of the service. It’s lovely to be able to read it in full and I will show Mum next time I am down in Devon. We were so pleased with the service and so many people came up to us afterwards and said how nice it was, so thank you again for all your help in putting it all together."
'The service was excellent you did a great job and we were all very happy with how you spoke and arranged everything and put it together. Thank you very much.'
I must thank you for your time and your research re dates when mum was born which really lightened the mood in the chapel. I thought your oration was perfectly pitched and captured my mum’s spirit flawlessly and throughout the service and at the graveside sounded very caring and sincere. You were obviously discussed at the wake afterwards by the mourners and all agreed it was a wonderful send off for mum and mainly thanks to you. My mum’s sister Beryl who had come up from Newquay said she would like you to do the same for her when the time comes. Praise indeed. Once again many, many thanks for your services which were exemplary. Kind regards Tony.

I think on a sad day when we have to say goodbye, we said it in a happy way - it was nice to think about her and celebrate her life. She was a kind soul and we were lucky to have had all that time. I'm sure she is free now. I think you delivered it in such a kind, compassionate way and you made a difficult day an easier one. "
