Dear Ashley and Katrina

Just a short note to say how pleased we were with the way that you helped us when our mum passed away.

We were particularly impressed with the way that you presented mum for us when we came to see her the evening before her funeral.

And the funeral the following day, although sad was truly inspiring.

Julie, Kippa-Ring

Dear Ashley and Katrina

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank both of you most sincerely for the respect you showed towards our father “Otto”

Thank you for your kindness and the helpful way that you conducted the funeral. It’s not an easy time for families when a loved one dies, but you’re caring made the experience a little easier to bare.

Thank you both once again

Regan, Forest Lake

Dear Ashley

Many thanks for your competent help at my mother “Cassandra’s” passing. Your years of experience and ability to mould to our specific wishes was a huge comfort to us during our darkest hour. We were especially grateful of the opportunity of holding mum’s funeral at our family home under her favourite fig tree.

I will be more than pleased to recommend you to everyone that I know who might need a funeral.

Martin, Caboolture

I can not thank you enough for the love and understanding that you have shown when our son was accidentally killed. When Jason was killed we were at a loss as to what to do and who to turn to. However, once you came to our home and placed your guiding hand on the tiller, a sense of peace came over us. And we knew that Jason and all our needs would be taken care of.

We especially thank you for the assistance that you arranged for us with “Compassionate Friends”. I understand that you are both members of this organisation and that we share the bond of both losing sons.

Thank you once again for your understanding and compassion at such a difficult time for us.

Gretel and Warwick, Mansfield

How can I ever thank you for your understanding and love when my husband Peter died?

It is impossible for me to thank you enough. Before, I called you I had spoken to many other funeral places. Not one of them were interested in me because of my predicament. But once I spoke to Ashley I knew that Peter could have the funeral that he so richly deserved.

As you know in the beginning Nikki and Liam were both too scared to see their dad, but after your encouraging words they decided to go in and spend some time with him. I know that they are both pleased that they did and still talk about how good he looked.

Ernistine, Wooloowin

Just a short note from New Zealand. Everything went well with Ben’s funeral. On the day of the funeral it rained heaps but no one minded. We were all amazed that you could get him back home at such short notice, and also arrange for 15 of us to fly on the same plane with him.

We will certainly be recommending you to all our friends.

Margaret and Bill, Goodna
