Phil Donoghue Celebrancy Services


Crematon Ceremony 23rd October 2013

May 28, 2014

On behalf of the family, I would like to express my thanks for the way in which you conducted

my mother's funeral service yesterday.

I have been to services in the past where the person in your position has "said the words"

but they have carried no meaning or sincerity.

You made it feel as if you had known my mother all your life and that, together with the contribution

of her grandchildren, made it a beautiful and highly emotional experience.

Once again thank you.

Hi Phil.

 

I am sorry it has taken me so long to send you this message. I suppose it's only now I feel able to do it.

 

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to say an enormous thank you for enabling us to give Charlotte such a beautiful farewell.

 

Many people were surprised to learn that you in fact never met Charlotte! A testament to your incredible listening and interpretation skills. 

 

The entire service was very 'Charlotte' and I know that even on such a sad day most...

Dear Phil, we would, in return, like to thank you sincerely for your time and patience. Before we spoke to you we were feeling somewhat daunted at the sheer scale of the task ahead and were really feeling the pressure to 'get it right' for Dad, however you have reassured us and made a difficult task so much easier. Thank you.

Regarding the ceremony, it was not “alright” - it was brilliant!!

We all felt it was about as close to perfect as humanly possible, especially given the short time to prepare everything.  You did a masterful job in weaving together all the different pieces and information you had gathered and your presentation was skilful and sensitive.

Anthony will be writing to you separately so, speaking for myself, thank you very much for all you did to give Alice such a wonderful closing ceremony. ...

Forgive me for not writing before, as you can imagine it has been quite a week – in fact it is really difficult to believe it is only a week, in some ways it feels like a lifetime. I cannot thank you enough for your help and support in making Dad’s funeral such a wonderful send off.  I could not have wished for it to be a better tribute to him and would not have changed a thing.  Even the Cornish music theme at the end worked so well, and had the desired effect of lifting people’s spi...
