Just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to you on behalf of my family for your work at my dad’s service. To be honest, I was really having trouble envisioning your role but now I could not imagine how we could have gone ahead without a celebrant – and particularly without you personally. You did an amazing job and so many people commented to me about how wonderful they thought you were. Although the fractures in my family were clear for a number of people to see and several of us were really curious how everything was going to unfold, the words you said and your calm, caring and peaceful voice really pulled everything together for us all in such a nice way.
Now being aware of what a Celebrant is, I was thinking how interesting your role must be. You come into the life of a family as a stranger and by the end of the day could be considered part of the family sharing in a very intimate and personal family celebration. At least that’s how I felt with you there – it felt like you were meant to be there and you were so warm and passionate – Dad would have loved to meet you. I’m sure he had a little smile on his face throughout the service.
Thank you for being there for us on our special day – and thank you in general for doing what you do – what an honourable role you play.
Have a great day.
My dad is very happy with what you've shared. He was particularly pleased and commented about the scriptures. Thank you, for fulfilling our wishes. We are truly grateful and appreciate all that you have done for our family. We will be mindful that you also officiate weddings and baby naming ceremony’s. Wow what a beautiful gift you have.
I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful ceremony for our mom on Saturday!
So many people told me that they thought you knew our mom because the words were so personal and heartfelt. It certainly was a beautiful service and it seems to have helped us all and has helped to lift some of the sorrow we were feeling and we’re better able to miss her but think of all of the happy memories. Thank you again,
I'd like to thank you for the wonderful service you delivered yesterday.
Our family thought it was the best and most personal service we have ever heard.
Thanks for making a very difficult day special for us. Best regards,
Kevin Shaughnessy and Family
A huge thank you for all that you did for us. You are an amazing celebrant. We received so many positive compliments about the service. Just a good feeling when our friends said it was the nicest funeral they ever attended. Thanks again
Keep up the great work. Your energy is wonderful, you just have a way to make people feel good. We are happy to hear that you offer grief support. Our family will follow up at a later date. Love Richard & Diane
Thanks again for speaking at our father's funeral yesterday. You really helped make a tough day more bearable. Everyone we spoke to really appreciated your words and Ry & Gramma and I especially appreciated your hugs. Sincerely
The Grant Family
It is with great thanks that I comment on Maggie’s services at our recent funeral for our Mom. I didn’t know Maggie beforehand, but she was highly recommended by Smith’s Funeral Homes. Maggie took the time to ask so many questions about my Mom and our family, it seemed as if she had known us all of our lives in her service. I highly recommend Maggie’s emotional intelligence and the way she was able to ‘sum up’ the mood of the room and speak directly to it. I would not hesitate in recommending Maggie’s services, even if you don’t know her. She will make your family feel comforted and provide a peaceful service. Sincerely,
Denise and Barry
On behalf of my family, I just wanted to express how grateful we are for having as the celebrant at Anthony’s service on Saturday. You set the tone for a lovely, heartfelt and personal service. It must be your true calling, to be able to create that atmosphere of genuine caring, even though you didn’t know our brother. Your warmth and gentle manner made everyone who attended feel comfortable, and with that, free to truly express their feelings in the moment. We will certainly keep your offer of counsel in mind in the months ahead, and know that you are an important part of our moving forward.

I would like to thank you very much for your guidance, support, and patience over the past several weeks. You made our trying experience of saying goodbye to my Mother manageable and showed us great caring and respect. I realize that our family offered you some challenges to rise above, but you accomplished this with understanding and compassion. We were very lucky to have you walk us through this experience and to hold our hands when needed. Thank you so much.
