I was so pleased that Sears was recommended to me following the passing of my wife Jan. It was obviously a very difficult time for me and I was totally in the dark about arranging a funeral service.

From the moment I entered the funeral directors I was put at ease and everything was explained to me by Pat, a very caring lady, and all the concerns I had were dealt with in an orderly and professional manner. Everything was taken care of for me and I left there confident I had made a good choice.
The funeral was arranged for a couple of weeks later and I could not have wished for a more dignified and beautiful service.

I would like to thank everyone involved at Sears for providing a truly memorable day for my family and I and for the attention to detail throughout the service.
All who were there commented on what a lovely service it was, some saying it was the most moving they had ever been to.

I must also thank Pat for recommending Helen the civil celebrant who conducted the service in a confident but kind and warm manner. She took the time to come to my house to get to know about Jan.

She did her job very well as many people remarked on the day that she spoke as though she knew her
personally.

I have awarded 5 stars as the whole day met all my expectations and Jan was provided with all the love and care that she truly deserved.

My thanks again to one and all at Sears for your kindness and professionalism.
