    R Butlers provided a kind, compassionate and professional service. Shirley in particular was very supportive. We had to make all of the arrangements over the phone and Shirley went the extra mile to ensure everything went smoothly for us. We highly recommend the company and their staff.

    The burden of preparation and the pressure was totally eliminated. Quite a relief at this time!

    Thankyou is never enough, but it is heartfelt.
