The moment you contacted my mom. 
She knew you were the right person.
On meeting us all we knew.

That we were in.

Very capable, safe hands.                
And the service you delivered.
Was better than we could.         
Ever have imagined.
Everyone commented.
On how they had enjoyed it.
You made the whole experience.
From gathering the detail beforehand. 
Picking out the key bits.
To delivering it in such a manner.
Which was easy.

And comfortable for us all. 
Many thanks Paul.

You made a difficult day. 
That little bit better.

Lynn, Wednesfield

Hi Paul, 
You came highly recommended.            

From a family member.
For your charismatic approach.
To a usually sad service. 
Paul you really did give.
Our father, husband, brother.
And special friend, the send-off.
He so well deserved, after a short illness.

Which shocked us all.
So many people have relayed their thanks.

And gratitude for a wonderful service. 
Thank you, Paul.
From all his family and friends.
It will be remembered.
As a happy day.
Rather than a sombre one!

Dan Hewitt

You made something.

I was dreading so easy.

I cannot thank you, enough for helping.

To make today so memorable.

In so many lovely ways.

Hi Paul,

On behalf of the family.

Thank you so much for beautiful service.

You delivered for my Nan.

You were fantastic.

Every word spoken, was so clear.

and the poem "Reunited"

Made us all think of Nan & Grandad.

Together Again.

Please take care and continue to help.

Families celebrate their loved ones lives.

The Mitchell Family

Paul I would just like to thank you. 

For the beautiful service.

You provided for Avril. 

Struck the right note with the eulogy.

Which described Avril and her life.

And painted a picture of her.

That was so true.
I would like to thank you.

For making a very bad day more bearable

Dennis, Dudley

Was a fun and fitting tribute.

To our beloved mum.

Dear Paul,

Thank you again for the wonderful service.

Sitting at the back.

Heard every word.

We can't thank you enough,

It was perfect.
