I can't thank your Annan based team enough, they were absolutely brilliant and so supportive throughout what are very difficult times for both myself and family.

My wife Marcia and I were married for over fifty two years and were engaged to be married for some time prior to our wedding, Marcia was an incredible wife, mother, grand mother and great grand mother, she always thought of others and never herself, she has left a total vacuum in our lives.

Everyone who attended her service was overwhelmed by the proceedings, there was not a dry eye to be seen anywhere, so many who attended but felt it difficult to speak out on the day have returned to pass on their condolences and comment on how it was such a moving service.

The Annan staff made myself and family, welcome, offered help and support, and conducted our affairs both professionally and in a very personal manner.

So many people have returned to ask for details of Benet our Funeral Celebrant, she is an outstanding lady.

Without going into a long list of names, I thank Adam, Harvey and my long time friend Keith who often stops to talk when I am walking our dog, each and every one are true gentleman, not forgetting thanks to all others involved.

Kind regards,

John and Family
