“I will be forever grateful to you for the wonderful way you handled my brother’s funeral. It was a traumatic time for the family and his many friends but somehow you managed to lift everyone’s spirits with a sensitive combination of humour and remembrance.  I think we all went away understanding, and indeed celebrating, the fact that we were privileged to have had him share his life with us.  With best wishes and heartfelt thanks.” Mr M. T. Swanage

“The eulogy was truly perfect, it flowed beautifully, and it captured, with both humour and sensitivity, the unique essence of my husband. It was, and continues to be, of great personal comfort. Thank you again.” Mrs H.R. Lympstone

“My friend’s funeral was quite unlike any other I have attended. Martin spoke sensitively yet candidly and he so accurately captured the very essence of the friend I knew and loved.  It was clear that he had taken the time to really understand her wishes whilst respecting the feelings of her family. I can only hope that my send-off will be as beautiful and poignant.” Mrs S.D. Exmouth

“I felt quite comfortable asking for his help with my funeral plans.  I am so glad I did because his advice and help were invaluable. We met up for a quiet coffee and talked about the kind of things I hoped to achieve, Martin made some very helpful suggestions, and I am very content with the result. My feelings are that forward planning will help my family at what is always a stressful time.It’s a job worth doing, especially if you can find someone who is kind and gives good advice. It’s certainly a weight off my mind!” Mrs J.W. Exmouth

“Through the overwhelming grief I felt at the passing of my Dad we all wanted to be able to celebrate his life. The service created by Martin was exactly what we wanted. The detail in the planning made the service very personal to us all. We laughed, we cried and most importantly we remembered my Dad for who he was. I will always remember the pain I felt that day but I will also always remember that we celebrated his life the way he would have wanted.” Mr J.T. Bristol

“Martin was able to paint a picture of our friend’s life in a sensitive and detailed way, capturing the essence of who she was and what she meant to us all. He allowed us to laugh, smile and cry as he joined together the dots of her life, managing to bring warmth, love and dignity to the saddest of occasions. The way he told her unique story helped us to reflect not only on the sadness of a life too short, but also on the many happy elements of a life well lived …” Mrs A.S. Exmouth
