    Myself, sister and our families considered the manner in which Charles W. Tait conducted all aspects of our mothers funeral to be of the highest possible standard. The director John, who coordinated everything, did so in a way which was kind and considerate of our emotions and needs before, during and after the funeral. John organised for Chris to conduct the humanist service. Chris spent a good time with us ensuring he had everything he needed. Our wish was for people to be inspired by the life and memory of our Mam and to leave the Crematorium with a smile on their faces. Chris certainly achieved this. His service was both dignified and sincere and we thank him for this. Also many thanks to all staff at Charles W.Tait, particularly John.
