“To Marie , Tom and all the staff, THANK YOU SO MUCH x
We wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for making such a difficult time so smooth and stress free. We felt completely at home as soon as we walked through the door and knew you’d look after Mum as well as you did.
You kept us in cups of tea and viscounts and welcomed our families with warmth, especially Marie, so kind allowing the children to visit and sing their hearts out for Grandma’s last “show” ! You accommodated our changing needs on every occasion and helped make decisions and plans when my brain couldn’t do it itself !
Marie you are wonderful, thank you for everything ! Mum’s last week on earth with you was wonderful and her funeral the best i’ve been to!
She would have been proud XX”

Thank you again, David, you may rest assured that your service will provide for me when my time comes”

“AT LAST, I am getting round to writing to you to thank you so much for the fantastic send off you gave Johnnie. We couldnt have asked for better.

Thank you for taking the hardest day of our lives & making it easier. We had no idea where to start, who to phone or who to speak too. Marie just took it all in her stride, answering our “silly” questions & requests & made them seem not so silly!! You have no idea how much we appreciated that & the time she took to speak to us all.

The funeral just went amazingly, from the undertaker walking in front of the hearse from our house, to you allowing Johnnies truck to be in front of it. Strange request, but no problem to you.

Donotions of £1100 were given to Ward 8 & Leukaemia research of the Western General in Johnnies name. Thank you so so much again, for making a horrible dark day, much lighter.”
