“I just wanted to write, to express my sincere thanks for everything you and the team did to ensure Mum’s wake went off as smoothly as it did yesterday. From Lynn and Perry showing us round to Faye, who was amazing on the day, she set everything up beautifully and couldn’t have been more helpful. 
From the outset you have been so accommodating, nothing was ever too much trouble, and you made a very difficult time so much easier. I simply can’t thank you enough.”
