What families say about funeral celebrants trained by green fuse
“I wanted to sincerely thank you for the reading at my mother’s funeral which I found to be very fitting and appropriate. My mother was not religious and would have been pleased with the service. Many people later told me that there were many aspects of my Mum’s life they had not known about and enjoyed learning more about her.”
“Just to tell you how much I appreciated how beautifully you arranged and conducted the service for dear A. It was inevitably sad, but simple, appropriate and deeply moving. Your opening words were an excellent account of his life and a marvellous tribute to him. The whole occasion will be a treasured memory for us all”.
“As you can understand I never dreamed that I would have to be doing this for my son at his age of 27, but from the moment you came to our home you put us at rest and made the funeral look so different – rather than frightening, a celebration.”
“Although it was a funeral it was not at all sombre and your eulogy captured the essence of what my Mum was about. You really did make it the loveliest, happiest funeral I have ever been to and many people commented on this tone which ran throughout. It’s weird but it has taken away much of the fear of death for me – it is another part of life therefore she has just moved on. With much thanks and love”.

“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a beautiful service you conducted for my husband. Your kind words were truly wonderful and I know that h would have been very pleased with how it all went. You are such a caring man and I know many more people will benefit from your advice and help at a difficult time. We were lucky to meet you and have you to guide us on a difficult occasion”
“Our family and Dad in particular thought the ceremony totally fitting and your words fully appropriate. You wonderfully captured the spirit of my Mum. It takes a talent to be able to sense a person’s soul. Friends of my Mum commented similarly and as you could see were moved to tears. I think it makes it easier to move on and focus on the future knowing Mum was laid to rest as she derived and as you said in closing, her spirit will always be with us. Huge thanks for making what can be difficult times so comforting and memorable in such a positive way.”

The respect you showed to him meant a great deal to me .

“I wanted you to know how much we appreciated all the time and trouble you took to meet us and help us put together the perfect summary of our mother’s life and the kind of person she was. Our family and friends said how much they enjoyed the whole service from learning more about mum’s early life and her war service to hearing the beautiful music and the comforting words you spoke. I was particularly touched by the words of the committal. Everything was perfect and Mum would have loved it. With many thanks and best wishes”.
