Dear all,

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. We are also very impressed with the quality of the recordings of the service and in these times it will be greatly valued by the family and friends.

My family and friends want to thank sincerely all the staff at Penrose for being so compassionate, professional and sensitive with fulfilling our wishes to celebrate the life of Margaret Rose Shales.

Penrose showed respect taking us through the detailed procedure with personal delicacy enabling us to honour a special woman.

I would highly recommend the family run business, and my father wishes are to use Penrose as he can guarantee a perfect ceremony.

Thank you.
