Music by Glen Miller, Vera Lynn and Nat King Cole brought back such happy memories for the family of this lovely lady.  Her granddaughter shared some wonderful words about her beloved Nana bca7a7296c62c6f5a518bdd1b77ca776

“And that is how I’ll always picture her – looking perfect – big smile on her face, so happy to see me.”

and her favourite time of the day was – Elevenses!

Thank you so much for what you did for us
Personally you made me feel very comfortable from the moment we met at a sad time for the family.

That’s Life

The Kings Street Funeral Chapel was full with standing room only when the life of this lovely lady was celebrated.
That’s Life – Frank Sinatra was played as a slide show of photographs of her life appeared on the screen and I read a wonderful, warm tribute to her written by her beloved family.
I just wanted to send you an quick note to thank you for all your help with arranging the simageservice for my Grandma today and also for the warm way that you delivered all the messages.  It was a sad day for me, but also great to share some of those memories and lovely photos of her!

Crossing the Bar

I received a thank you from a family whose mother loved the sea.  They had chosen this beautiful poem by Tennyson as it was her favourite.  We sang the hymn  Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven as her family placed their flowers in memory of such a beautiful person.

A brief note to formally thank you for officiating at Mum’s funeral on Monday

We were all very pleased with the service and I think Mum would have been too !

I greatly valued your help and support with the planning and we are all indebted to you for your professionalism and skill on the day

Well done and thank you !

Crossing the Barimages

Sunset and evening star,

      And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar,

      When I put out to sea,

   But such a tide as moving seems asleep,

      Too full for sound and foam,

When that which drew from out the boundless deep

      Turns again home.

   Twilight and evening bell,

      And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

      When I embark;

   For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place

      The flood may bear me far,

I hope to see my Pilot face to face

      When I have crost the bar.

Alfred Lord Tennyson
