All the following testimonials were gathered from feedback given to the Institute of Civil Funerals and can be verified by them.
“Only to say we could not have asked for a better person than Sue Holden, to conduct our ceremony. She had a
lovely demeanour and was unobtrusive in her approach. A good listener and easy to talk to”.
“Just wanted to thank you for the funeral service on Thursday. I can’t find the exact words that I want to convey, perhaps I can just say that it made the worst day of my life more bearable”.
“Thank you for the Presentation copy of the script for xxxx’s funeral service, it far exceeded both, of our expectations in style and content. We would like once again to thank you, not only for the work that you put into the tribute and choice of music for the service, but also for your help and empathy toward us, and indeed to all, who attended.
“It is very unlikely that either of us will be organising, or attending a similar event in your area, so I don’t suppose we shall meet again but should we ever be asked to recommend a “civil celebrant” without a doubt it will be yourself”.
“Can I also thank you for the sensitive way in which you helped us with the preparation and putting the day together, always making us feel we were in control but with the reassurance that you would ensure it all went to plan, which it did”.
“Your lovely demeanour and calming nature made us feel very at ease, a rare gift.”
“You came into our family a stranger, but left as a friend.
Thank you again for your kind words.”
“Your energy and manner were reassuring, assured, kind, warm and funny. Perfect.”
“Absolutely perfect – I am overwhelmed by how well you have captured our dad.”
