Thank you very much for conducting such a good ceremony yesterday. Everybody said how excellent your address was!
I didn't get to say thank you for the wonderful reading you did today. It made us laugh and cry. I loved it all.
I just wanted to say thank you from us all for delivering the service yesterday for Mum. I think the whole event was just right for Mum and your words captured her personality and story just right. Thanks again for helping us so much. You did my mum proud.
We all wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful reading about my Mum’s life. Me and my brother and the family were truly blown away by the service. I cannot thank you enough for my mum’s service.
