"Last week you spent several hours with our family as celebrant ... I did not want to let the gift of what you brought us go by without expressing our sincere thanks and appreciation for the gentleness and care you took in managing the memory of Jack in our moment of grief. The way you captured the essence of his life at the funeral was, to me, inspired."

"Families confronted by sudden loss and grief need gentle guidance to assist them with the formalities. Your assistance and experience was well received...I appreciated the effort you went to, to research Dad's life through contacting a number of his friends and colleagues. Your words struck a chord..."

"You conducted with dignity and respect the funeral of a very well loved and respected man. Your gift of grasping the facts is commendable and your patience is to be admired."

"... it was just as if you knew him personally, and was so well done. It all left me with a sense of wonderful memories of a day which one usually dreads."

"..we could never have asked for anyone more perfect than yourself, we almost felt you had known her all your life."

"One of my friends who heard the tape said that the sincerity with which you spoke was quite remarkable, and that he would like to fly you to Sydney when the time comes for his mother's funeral, and that he would speak to the rest of his family about this. Other people who attended Dad's funeral Service asked me if you were Family. You surely have a God-given gift."
