The funeral itself exceeded every expectation but what I took away most was the sympathetic and efficient approach provided by Jackie in what is clearly sad times. I never once felt pressurised or burdened whilst agreeing the arrangements and this allowed me and my family to mourn without any background stress - a professional service.
