To Bob thank you so much for the way you looked after us all in our goodbye to Will. I felt so comforted to know that Will was in your care, althougy as james sair, it was such a shame that Will had to wait so long to be looked after by a man like Bob. I felt so at peace as soon as you brought Will up to my house on Monday ans i saw the lovely floral tributes. It gave me the strenght and calmness to get through the day. Thank you for everything, it's a pity that those who really need you(those that have passed away) don't get to meet you. With all my appreciation and heart felt thanks Janet.

  • Dear Bob,

     

    The family of the late Doreen Pylypiuk would like to take this opportunity in thanking you and you’re staff wholeheartedly for the care and compassion that you showed toward them

    and the heartfelt respect you showed toward their Mum when she passed away peacefully in Pinderfields Hospital on Friday 13th December 2013.

     

    Losing someone close at any time is distressing, but to lose someone close at Christmas only adds to the sadness however you managed to sort out all the arrangements prior to Christmas, whilst maintaining the utmost care and consideration toward the family.  

     

    This kind of service can only be achieved by someone with a high level of professionalism and experience, combined with a kind and considerate nature.

     

    Our Mum deserved the best and that’s what you gave her! With your contribution, we are now able to celebrate her life and enjoy her long-lasting memories.   

     

     

    Also Bob, can you do us eight remembrance cards with the attached photo as requested by Mick when he settled the account.

     

     

    Kindest Regards

     

     

    The Family

  • For the understanding service given to us, following the death of my dad, Bevan Davies on 8-12-13  from the very first phone call which I made to your office, to say that dad had sadly passed away, I was confident that I could entrust, into your expert care, everything which needed to be done. This reassurance was of great comfort to me at such a sad and stressful time. Your efficiency in making the nessessary arrangments was second to none, culminating in a wonderful funeral for dad, which was just as he had wanted it to be. Every detail of the occasion was perfect and it brought great comfort to all the family that we had been able to give dad such a magnificent "send off". Throughout the whole process, my family and I were treated with great compassion and caring for which we thank you wholeheartedly. Kirsty and I were particulary touched at the care and attention given to carrying out dad's last wishes regarding items that he had wished to be placed with him in his coffin, it was a great comfort to see dad at peace. with Kindest regards from Julia Malloch & family
