F and I would like to thank you so much for organising and conducting such a lovely service for our mother yesterday.

At every stage of the process, you provided a warm, guiding hand. Neither of us has organised a funeral before, and I think we were both worried about what a stressful process this would be, and how would we go about producing something that successfully paid tribute to J at such a stressful time.

With your help, it has been a remarkably easy process, and you managed to make it a pleasure to remember the good things about mother. The way you captured her essence for your words was remarkable, and very much appreciated.

So thank you again.

Hi Michelle,

I just wanted to write to say a really BIG thank you for such lovely services yesterday. I never imagined I could sit at my parents’ funerals and be smiling at some of the memories you drew together from our conversation. I feel that each service honoured each of them individually, but with the thread of the family running through both. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more, so thank you again from all the family.

Best wishes,
(funeral for both parents)

Good Morning Michelle

Thank you very much indeed for arranging and conducting the funeral service for E on Wednesday. The time and efforts which you put into the preparation were really appreciated and we are sure that E would have enjoyed and approved of the final result. Your attention to detail, particularly your coral coloured scarf would certainly have pleased her.

I wanted to send my sincere thanks to you for such a beautiful service for Dad yesterday.

I had quite a few friends and close family members watch and they all commented on the lovely and touching elements of the service. One friend even commented how the sun shone through the open doors at the end, which I feel sure was Dad’s happiness at the event.

With gratitude and warmest wishes

Morning Michelle,

Apologies for the delay with this but I was trying to catch up with Christmas yesterday and time ran away with me.
I wanted to thank you for a beautiful, sensitive and perfect send off for Mum. Both you and T were absolutely amazing. The empathy you both showed throughout was so lovely and the service was just as I hoped it would be. It was so uplifting to sing Winter Wonderland knowing how much Mum would have loved it. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas and peaceful New Year.

Hello Michelle

My sisters and I just wanted to say a big thank you for the way you conducted mums service yesterday.
We couldn’t have asked for a better send off for our wonderful mum

Your care and the delivery of the service was very professional
Once again thank you so much. It made a difficult day a lot easier for all of us.

Kind regards

I just want to thank you very much for such a beautiful service and for your kind words. I know Evelyn would have appreciated it all. Everybody said how nice it was.

Harbour View is such a lovely place I am happy that it will be her final resting place.

Thank you again and take care.

Dear Michelle, thank you so much for taking Katherine’s funeral service this morning. It was beautiful. We really appreciate your sensitivity, kindness and insight in helping us celebrate and grieve Katherine from our different perspectives and in our different ways. She is at peace.
Best wishes,

Letter to a funeral Director:
We also would like to congratulate you on your recommendation to have Michelle McCann as our funeral celebrant. The moment we met her we realised that not only is she a very caring person, but extremely good at finding the right words to express how we as a family felt towards our sad loss. She conducted the service in a sincere and meaningful way, which created the atmosphere we hoped for in celebration of our Mum’s life. We would highly recommend her empathy and excellent services as a funeral celebrant.

I have attended many funerals in my line of work, but I would like to say that was one of the best funerals I have been to – many thanks

Thank you very much Michelle,

Your words were very comforting at such a sad time,
We cannot thank you enough.

Kind regards

Thank you so much for today…it was a beautiful service. Lots of people came up to us after and said how good it was and how it did celebrate the life of my mum. Not the nicest of days but something we all have to go through but as we all said, she would of have loved today, all the people there, some flew from Spain some drove from Bristol.

But thank you….was a day to remember

Dear Michelle,

Thank you very much for everything you did at Mum’s funeral yesterday. My family and friends said how much they enjoyed your very informative and brilliantly presented talk about mum’s life.

Thank you for your caring and professional presentation.

Kind regards

Just a thank-you to say how much we appreciated your help in preparing and carrying out Mum’s service. We all felt that your writings were very apt and beautifully presented.
Thank you once again

A huge thank you to all who helped make my father’s send off so memorable and uplifting, here are some of the pictures we took, please feel free to share and pass on to anyone I have forgotten.
