    Jodi was amazing from our very first meeting. She showed empathy and warmth, and she guided us when deciding what we wanted for my fathers funeral. She gave cups of tea which were much appreciated and hugs when they were needed. She kept in contact informing us what was happening, and reminded us of information that was required. We cried, and laughed which lightened the mood, and on the day of the Celebration of my Fathers Life (Funeral) everything was perfect. Thank You.
