Dear Deb,

Once again we all wanted to say a big "thank you for taking such good care of 'Mom', and us over these hard days. We also really appreciated you understanding how important it was for us to have Mom and Dad together. You did everything you could to make sure our wishes were carried out. Your calmness, empathy and caring was once again amazing, and much appreciated. It, and you, will never be forgotten. Thank you so much, take care of yourself. What you do is so important for those that have lost a loved one, especially the way you do it.

Love, Gaynor, Alli & Lynn.

Thank you for looking after Mac and respecting his wishes. It was a comfort to all of us knowing you were taking care of him. Thank you for helping Rachel spend the last journey with Mac. I know it meant a lot to both of them, and finally thank you for helping us last Saturday to settle him, this meant a lot to us. 

Kind regards,

Holmes Family

To Debra,

Just a little something to say thank you for such a wonderful job you had done for my parents. Although my parents had requested not to have a funeral, the way you presented and cared for them was outstanding. I have been to many funerals and the most recent was my sister, who, I felt was not presented well. You took away the stress and they couldn't have had a better send off. Thank you so much,

Love, the Turner family.

We would like to thank you very much for the amazing assistance that we received with the passing of our Dad and Grandad. You went above and beyond with us at such a difficult time, and this process was made easy through talking with you when we needed. We appreciated that you were only a phone call away and whatever we wanted, you helped ease our pain and stress. You are an inspiration to your profession and we could not have asked for more.

Yours sincerely,

Marcel and Lisa, Angela, Kristen, Caitlin, Jessica, Dona, Braedyn and Emilie.

Mark, I would like to thank you sincerely for all your help with Mum - even interrupting your holiday. We really appreciated your efforts and everything ran like clockwork - we even got to follow you to the gardens and that wasn't in the plan!!

Hi Team

 Thank you so much for all your hard work this week.  Nothing was a problem for you guys and you made what was one of the most difficult days for our family a beautiful celebration to remember mum.  Everyone in the family was pleased with how it went (including Rob – so well done!)

 No doubt you will hear from George in the near future when he comes to Tuakau to take you all for a drink.

 Also, if you are ever having a bad day play the video Iain made – we laugh just thinking about it.

 Thanks again.  Kind regards

Good afternoon Sheryl

 On behalf of the family, we would just like to express our sincere and heartfelt thanks for all your guidance, advice and help with Mum’s funeral arrangements.  Mum leaving us so unexpectedly and suddenly was a huge shock for all of us - not something we thought we would have to deal with just yet.  Marissa and the team were thoughtful and accommodating with our wishes which was very much appreciated.

 Would you please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Marissa, Mark, Ivo and the team.  

Kind regards, Pali Panchia
