Some of the very kind comments Paul and the team have received from families they have been privileged to serve.
"Dearest Paul and Muriel, Thank you so much for the dignity and care with which you handled Luke’s body. We had tremendous feedback from friends who were impressed with the professional and caring way you handled the day. Many, many people commented on how well you looked after us and we wanted you to know that. Your care and kindness made an unbearable, heart-breaking day that little bit easier to bear. No wonder you and Craig are such close friends, two caring souls together. Also please say thank you to Muriel who treated us so gently and with such genuine concern. With heartfelt gratitude."
Phil & Rita Holland (Luke’s Mum & Dad)
