To Nathan an all staff at Penrose
Thank you for making the worst day of my life bearable.
The difficulties I faced arranging a funeral for my beloved husband were made easier with your empathy, compassion and professionalism, particularly considering the added pressure during the Pandemic.
To Nathan and all at Penrose, I just wanted to thank you for the sensitivity, care and respect you showed my Grannie yesterday. She looked amazing and I’m sure you caught a glimpse of her incredible 100 years as my dad spoke at the grave-side. You don’t have an easy job but I hope you know how grateful people are that you do it so well.
Your manner and conduct was gentle, considerate and supportive, thank you for all you did to make yesterday so special. You have been given the gifting and attitude needed to help bring peace and blessing during difficult circumstances. May you know God’s peace and blessing as you continue to serve others in this way, Thank you
Thank you for arranging a lovely service for Colin, your support and kindness in a difficult situation was much appreciated. With Love…
Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,
My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.
I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.
Thank you to all at Penrose for helping both of us through what could have been a difficult time under very trying circumstances.
The caring way you dealt with my Mother, Flossie’s, funeral over the telephone, your kindness in fulfilling all our wishes and the respect and professionalism shown today made it a day we shall always treasure.
Thank you again,
I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I am with your care, your thoughtfulness and the profound dignity with which you conducted the service. You have been impeccably professional from start to finish… Thank you
To everybody at Penrose
Thank you so very much for the professional service you provided for my son ‘Pat’ yesterday. Much love…
Dear Jeremy, Nathan and the funeral boys,
Thank you for your kindness, patience, professionalism, your unswerving aplomb at our weird requests, and for your versatility in adapting to necessary last minute restrictions and changes due to Covid.
