Words of appreciation


Dear Di, 

Thank you very much for helping to make Mum's funeral so very memorable. There were many comments from the family and friends on what a beautiful service it was. 

I feel sure that much of what we remembered is due to the way you do things, not just what is said. 

Knowing how hard it is to use words well I am in awe of your skill in listening to our stories of mum, drawing out the most important parts, then knitting them together to show her in familiar ways, as well as in new ways. It gave me much to think about.

It also showed me how important it is to collect stories about our families, to bring to life the photos we pass on to following generations. 

Thank you for helping to share my mothers stories. 

With our sincere thanks and best wishes, 



Dear Di,

On behalf of Tara, Jade, and myself I would like to thank you very much for being the person that conducted the funeral service for Marilyn yesterday.

The Eulogy was so good, actually exceptional for someone that had not met Marilyn.

A great job.

As you had not met with her parents, your sensitivity towards them met with their approval, as were  very mindful of all the family when putting it together. Again many thanks for your work, but also your assistance with choreographing the whole day.

Yours Sincerely,


My Dear Di, 

I have been very tardy in writing this note... each time I try I have been unable to go on. 

Thankyou, thankyou... for your beautiful service to Alex. 

I have had so many reports on what a wonderful service it was, and to you in particular on your presentation. 

I have sent a copy of the service to his brother overseas. he has just managed to to sit and read it, saying he felt that he was there, when reading the service. Also,  stating he learnt so much more about his brother.. things he didn't know. Such a shame..

Again, my deep heartfelt thanks from myself and the family. 


All of the family join me in thanking you for the wonderful memorial service you conducted last week in a tribute to John.

I have had many calls and cards from people who attended full of praise for your Eulogy and the tributes remembering his life. Thank you for introducing us to Dean, what a delightful man, so professional and with great compassion.

Thank you again for your friendship and the memorable service.

Dear Di,

Thank you for the lovely service you gave for Mum. Your wording brought the two families together perfectly. Everyone felt included, comfortable and impressed.

I would like to pass on my personal thanks for the comfort and support you gave me. The time to say the final goodbye seemed too quick for me and I struggled.

I will always remember your kindness.

Warmest regards,



Dear Di,

Thank you sincerely for all your help and caring at the service for John.

You gave so much of your time … I know he would have felt honoured at such a beautiful service all for him, a true gentleman.
