We would like to thank you for all the care and attention you gave towards our relative Eva Wright recently. You were all most respectful at all times and we greatly appreciated your help before, during and after the funeral.

Thank you Brendon and Kevin for your sympathy, kindness and compassion when you took Cliff into Penrose’ care.
Thank you Nathan for arranging the funeral, it was perfect in every way.
Thank you Jeremy for completing the Order of Service and for leading the funeral in such a respectful, dignified and professional manner. We cannot express how much this meant to us as a family.
Thank you Edward and Paul for your support, respect and kindness on the day of the funeral. Edward, you offered your coat to our mum as she looked cold and Paul, you were so kind talking about the dogs outside our house before we left, the dogs were a big part of Cliff and are so important to the family, so this gave us comfort knowing that they had been recognised.
We have no hesitation in recommending your services to our family and friends.
All of you made a very sad day more bearable. We sincerely THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts,
