“I want to reach out to you and personally thank you for the care and attention you gave to our family with my father-in-law’s funeral last week. Words cannot express what it meant to have someone as professional and accommodating shepherding us through this sudden and tragic loss. You were very understanding of the cost concerns and I do appreciate everything you did based on our business relations, but little did I know that was just the beginning. As you know, my wife and her siblings were the decision makers. It was not my place to make decisions on the final arrangements for the man who raised them, but I wanted them to have a choice of a person they could trust in a very dark time for them. I can’t thank you enough for being that person. It had a very big impact on the entire family and they all commented on your kindness, sincerity, and flexibility. The family was also very pleased with your facility as compared to the others they visited. They thought it was much nicer, brighter, and more welcoming; a fitting place to say goodbye to “Dad”. There were also impressed with your familiarity with the Buddhist ceremony and traditions. They were all honored as you bowed three times after placing the casket in the hearse. One family member even commented they thought they saw a tear in your eye during the ceremony at the crematory. You made a difficult situation a loving and warm goodbye, they all felt cared for and that their father was in good hands.
Thanks again, you did a great thing for our family.”

They were very kind and understanding. Their kindness was a ray of sunshine on a very sad day.”

I know that family and friends alike benefited from this final farewell”.

You made my Dad’s passing much easier on us. We were totally unprepared for this situation, had no experience and basically could not have done this without you.
