I would like to thank you and the team, everything went very well on the day, Reverend Johnson gave a lovely service, my sister gave an amazing eulogy of which she should be very proud, and the conductor Beverley Lodge was great and lead the hymn singing with great enthusiasm, which made up for us mumblers!
Just to let you know that everything went really well yesterday, and to say thank you for such a smooth journey for us all. It is (as you know) such a poignant time for the family, but with all your help and kindness throughout the procedure, life for myself and my sister was made a lot easier, left with the task of organising our mother’s funeral.
Thanks for all that you and your team did to guide us through the difficult time of arranging our father’s funeral. Your warm and friendly personality was a huge comfort to us when we came to speak with you, and your patient guidance through all the necessary formalities was fantastic.
The day of the funeral went so well and your friendly, respectful team were wonderful. I would like to particularly thank Paul for his gentle humour that helped us all so much as he guided us through it all, what a lovely man!
Thank you also for introducing us to Cliff, who did such a wonderful job creating a very personal Order of Service.
Many thanks once again.
We would like to say a huge thank you for your help and support in arranging mother’s funeral last Friday. Your choice of Celebrant, Marion Royer, was perfect, a lovely lady who carried out the service as though she knew her.
Please also pass on our thanks to Keith who stayed with us outside the crematorium in the snow and the cold until we were ready to leave. We do appreciate all you did to ensure the day went as smoothly and dignified as is possible.
Thank you so much for all your support during this very testing time. It was very reassuring to know that we are not the only family who falls apart when a parent dies.
You have gone ‘over and above’ in your role, showing lots of kindness and patience and above all understanding. Your caring and sympathetic nature make you perfect for this role.
With warmest wishes and much gratitude.
Many thanks for all your help. The funeral was just perfect with plenty of time in the chapel. The organist (Lindsay Bridgewater) played wonderfully as we knew he would, and the Reverend Mike Stanbrook was his usual rather special self. The flowers looked amazing and the Lodge Brothers team made it all go smoothly.
Your men on the day were very good, please pass on our thanks. Paul Bye was excellent, understanding of all we wanted and a friendly face to guide us, everything went so smoothly please give him our thanks, I know my father would have approved of it all. Lastly thank you Annie for guiding us through this, you made it very easy for us and although it’s a strange thing to say I feel that I have made a new friend.
Thank you for the guidance and support with all our questions during the preparation for J**’s funeral. From the funeral plan, to the recommendation of Rev Malcolm Johnson, the flowers and the music. The day went smoothly and it was a lovely day saying farewell in that everything fell in to place thanks to you. Thank you to Victoria and team. They were smart, professional and kind. Thank you for suggesting Rev Malcolm Johnson for the ‘thanksgiving’ – he was lovely; a real gentleman.
I want to thank everyone at Lodge Brothers, all your staff were wonderful. The funeral couldn’t have gone better. We had a good turn out and lots of lovely floral tributes, which the nursing home made good use of afterwards.
You were top of my list to call to say thank you. From start to finish I am so grateful for how kind and thoughtful everyone was.
