Hi Todd, The day was long for those of us closest to "name", but we knew it would be. The service was beautiful from what I recall, parts are a bit of a blur. Family members and others felt you did a wonderful job - in particular my sister and brother-in-law who lost their son 11 years ago. They said you just simply understood the situation and delivered words that they felt would have helped them in their situation.
Dear Todd, I’ve been meaning to contact you to thank you for the service, it was exactly what we were hoping for. Not religious, but in keeping with our faith, true to "his" story but not revealing, short but complete. Most important to us though was how meaningful and personal you made the service. Thank you. Your genuineness, compassion, and kindness came through ❤ . When I got to my car I had messages from 16 different people. Many of those commented on the service, especially how moving your words were. One of my friends said she was speechless. That your words provided comfort to her. And it’s true, your words rang very true (which another friend echoed)...
Hello Todd, I just wanted to thank you very, very much for the lovely job you did of my Dad's service on Saturday night. We've received feedback from people who watched the webcast, and many of them praised your kind, gentle, thoughtful approach. They thought you were perfect for the job. We did too. Thank you also for being a great listener, and being easy to work with. That, as you know, is important to people who are grieving. Your comments at the service reflected an understanding of my father which I appreciated. It was a pleasure to work with you.
I want to thank you for the Celebration of Life service you provided for my mom "Name". You totally captured who she was and this has helped our family through our grief. It was a beautiful service and did justice to mom’s memory
Good morning Todd,
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you provided for our Mother. A lot of people asked me if you were a family friend because you gave such a warm representation of Mom. When I told people that you were a Celebrant recommended by (funeral home), they were quite impressed and a few were not aware of what a Celebrant was. You presented our Mother's life as she lived it and were quite respectful of her without being "preachy". I would feel good to recommend your service to anyone. We received great comments from both services you gave.
I apologize that this reply is so late! We wanted to thank you for leading (Name)'s service, you were wonderful and we received many compliments from our friends and family about how you impressed them! We felt the same about you! We are so thankful for the support and guidance you provided for our family during a very difficult time.
The (Name) Family. PS We will be certain to recommend you to anyone who may need your support!
Hi Todd, just wanted to write you and thank you for all of your help and wonderful kind words at mom's service. I am sorry I didn't come to thank you personally on the day, I will admit to being quite overwhelmed at that time. I thought the service was beautiful and truly appreciate the words you said, every member of the family that I spoke to had such kind and wonderful reviews of the work you did. I truly think that you helped bring comfort and closure to my family during this difficult time, thank you so much. I have passed along your information to my aunts and uncles who requested it, I hope that was alright, they would like to reach out to you to share their gratitude as well.
Thank you very much. From the bottom of my heart.
Many thanks again for the excellent job you did for my mom and family yesterday. Your thoughts and guidance were perfect, and I appreciate the way you handled everything. You were the perfect choice!
Have a great day! May our paths cross again in happier times.
Thank you Todd for everything! Your compassion combined with strong professionalism was amazing and so greatly appreciated. Please know, that you made such a difference during this difficult time to our family. For this, we will be eternally grateful.
