"Thank you so much for such a beautiful service. It was so lovely and the best farewell Bob could have had, thank you too Den for ushering and helping out as well to make it all run so smoothly. We will never forget your extreme kindness and professionalism at this very emotional time. Thank you so much."
"Such a wonderful send off for Dad. We can't thank you enough for being so professional and delivering a wonderful service for Dad, perfect, thank you."
"Elaine, words fail me. Thank you for everything around Sarrah's Celebration of Life. It was fabulous. Never forgotten."
"We very much appreciated the kind and considerate way you guided us towards concluding mother's funeral service. Given the circumstances and restrictions, we felt that we had done the best we could to say goodbye to mum as a family and it was in no small measure that you helped us do that for which we are grateful. Your words were kind and gentle, most appropriate and well received."
"Our sincere thanks for the lovely service and eulogy. The service fused Dad’s wishes with our desire to celebrate his life and in doing so proved that you can please everybody. Thank you so much for your care and attention to detail."
"It was a lovely send off for our daughter, and we were all moved by it. It was a lovely tribute to her and the reverence you showed to Sara, and was a lovely touch talking to her, facing her coffin. Thank you once again for all your help in making it such a lasting memory for the family."
"Thank you so, so much for writing and delivering mum’s eulogy. It made her funeral service so personal and reflected her perfectly. We will be forever grateful that you made sure that we could give her the send-off she deserved. So many people have got in touch to say how lovely the service as and how much they enjoyed hearing the details of her life and they all mentioned how interesting and entertaining you made it. Thank you once again for doing mum proud."
"Thank you so much for the care and attention given to Nan’s eulogy, and for all the great stories which bought her to life. Each time I read it; it makes me cry. Nan would have loved it so very much. A million and one thanks from both of us."
"We were concerned at how we could give Terry a good send off during these very challenging times and with his partner, our Mother, Margaret being in a care home with dementia. But we needn’t have worried with you by our side to guide us with your love and professionalism. You saw us through every step of the way, and we had a beautiful service, which was appreciated by all. Thank you for all your kindness."
"Thank you so much for your kindness, gentleness, and understanding, when our family was going through such a sad time with both my husband and my dad. We felt it was like talking to a friend. The way you worded the services about their lives was beautiful, and made a very sad time special to us as a family."
"Thank you, Elaine, for being very kind and supportive and helping me through this very difficult time, and for your kind words and support always. Thank you for taking Dave’s service which I am sure that he would have approved, and so grateful for writing his eulogy, putting together the lovely words which really is a gift you have. Thank you so much."
"Thank you so much Elaine for helping us to make such a sad occasion so much easier. Elaine is very understanding, compassionate and we wouldn’t have managed without her. Nothing was too much trouble. The service was beautiful and a lovely tribute to Mum. Very professional and caring, I would highly recommend."
We want to thank you for the truly lovely service. It really was delivered with such genuine care and compassion that it somehow made it all a little easier on us. Most of all though, our thanks goes to you for the days before the funeral. You made it so much less difficult for us at a time when we really couldn't have handled any more on our plates. I'm so glad I thought of you when I realised we needed a celebrant. Thank you.
I am Elaine's partner and I wish to add a few words after seeing Elaine offering her expertise as a Celebrant at various funerals. They are obviously sad occasions but with a dignified approach, and time spent with families to make sure the service is delivered as they require, Elaine certainly constructs a beautiful scenario. It is a time for tears, but also a celebration of the life of the deceased, which will be remembered for many years. My sister's funeral, conducted by Elaine, was simply perfect, the balance between quiet dignity and a joyful departure, a release from the indignity of Alzheimer's disease. Better times recalled and an out flowing of love for that beautiful soul so well presented by Elaine.
Elaine, you made our day to say our goodbyes to our precious Mum so special. Such a sad day turned out to be a happy occasion inspired by your words and love. All that attended left feeling such love and positivity for the future without our beautiful selfless Mum. The presentation of her life was amazing and we can never thank you enough. With all our love, Robert, Angie & Gillie.
Elaine spent time with us, to really find out what we wanted on the day, what dads interests, and life was about, and then created a eulogy to bring all these aspects together, in a kind, respectful way, she made us feel at ease, and helped us both before and after the event. We would highly recommend her to anyone who asks.
Elaine help us all pull together our thoughts and feeling into a speech she delivered on our behalf as we said goodbye to my father. She was patient and helpful as we put together our memories and took care to get the balance right.
