I give special thanks to John and Bede for their genuine caring and attention to detail. They afforded me when arranging the service for my husband, Michael and the professional way the service was carried out with love and respect which I greatly appreciate and indeed was commented to me by many in attendance.
Thank you again
"Dear John, I can't thank you enough for making our lives so much easier during this hard time. Two weeks ago I would never of thought I would have been put in the situation of organising a funeral and never would It be one of my parents. Thank you for making it so organised and stress free. Your friendly and understanding nature was admired by all my family and extended family who new what I was facing.
Your professional help and also your genuine concern for our thoughts and wishes was amazing.
I truly believe that if my dad was alive he would have had some great laughs with you. With you only speaking to him for a few short minutes the day before he was straight to the point that he wanted you to be part of his goodbye."
Please thank all involved in the service. The flowers were perfect and have been split up into bunches for the immediate family who thought they would love to have a small part of the service live on.

"Words are not enough to thank John from "Funerals of Compassion". From the moment I contacted John for my recent brothers funeral I knew on behalf of my family that Shanes funeral would be handled with dignity and proffessionalsm,which it was.Nothing was a problem for John and the extraoadary effort on his behalf made Shanes funeral easier on all of us. The total cost of the funeral was the lowest in Sydney from my research but was given the "Rolls Royce" approach in every aspect. I will always highly recommend "Funerals of Compassion", in the future."Kind Regards,

You gave me reassurance that you would look after Dad which made me feel at ease. Your regular updates throughout the funeral arrangements was greatly appreciated. You showed the utmost respect before and after the service which so many people who attended the service commented on.

"John, on behalf of my family I would like to express our gratitude for the beautiful send off you arranged for my brother, Glen. Every one who attended the funeral said that it was one of the loveliest they had been to. You made a very hard two weeks as easy as they could possibly be, taking care of every detail , quietly and efficiently, and accommodating all of our wishes. Nothing was too hard for you. Afterwards we felt proud of what we had organised, with your help, to say goodbye to Glen, and celebrate his life. This comforts us enormously at this very sad time. Thank you John from the very bottom of our hearts. You are indeed very good at what you do but above all you are a very kind and compassionate man. Thank you."Kind Regards,

"Love and Compassion go hand in hand,
"He was taking Mum into His care" said John, about my Mother Josephine Bajada, and with honour and respect that's exactly what he did.
John soon came to relise what a beautiful caring wife and Mother I feel Mum still is, who made many sacrifices for her family and her love and affection for them and her pets were boundless.
John would say to us "What a lovely Lady, I feel as though I truly knew her, as each time I come I learn more of your family history and how Josephine came from Malta by ship, alone with 4 small daughters." "What a remarkable Lady, I would have been proud to have known her too."
It is a sad and heavy burden to bear for a long time to come but amidst the added worries John would always be there to help me.
When I chose the flowers for Mum, it was her Wedding bouquet I copied and John's wife created the most beautiful arrangement of white flowers, interspersed with Mum's much loved red roses. Mum's Red roses always put a beautiful smile on her face and her eyes would laugh with joy. Angela's expertise made the choice of Mum's photos a heartwarming experience and we sincerely thank you.
So with grace and dignity loveingly bestowed on my Mum Josephine Bajada by John and his wife, and Garry, Rocco, Bede and Angela, was the highest tribute paid to someone who is ultimately held in such high esteem, by her husband Spiro and her 6 children.
Nothing was too hard for John, and his understanding and courtesy towards my family was unmeasureable, and we thank you and the team from Funerals of Compassion sincerely.
"When our two little Angels Snowy (our dog) and Jude (our bird) passed away just weeks before Mum, God thought these two were a handful, so he needed another Angel to look after them and He chose my Mum." (By Carmen Bajada)
We love you Mum always and for ever and miss your laughing smiles, God keep you in His care for us. "We thank you John
Bajada family especially Spiro, Carmen and Joe.

"Dear John and staff at the Blacktown Office, On behalf of my family I would like to thank you and all your staff for your professionalism. You made a very difficult time bearable through your attention to detail, personal touches and staff commitment to assisting us all in a very sad time. This was demonstrated by one of your staff recognising the distress of one of the mourners who was not able to place a rose on our Mother's coffin. This staff member was obviously closely observing the service and found a rose to give to the woman in distress and this went a long way to assisting her in her grief. Again we thankyou very much and are happy to recommend the services of you and your company to anyone who [unfortunately] may need it in the future. "Kind Regards,

"2012 will be remembered for us as the year we lost our father and it is with sincere gratitude that I write these words to thank you for organising our father's farewell. From the moment you walked into mum's house to meet us, we felt you would be the one to help us say good bye to dad.
Your compassion, genuine care and meticulous attention to detail helped all of us walked through a very special time with dignity. For me, I am eternally grateful that I was able to have you by my side as I farewelled my beloved father.

"My husband had lost his battle with cancer at age 53. We gave funerals of compassion a call and John arrived at our home just 2hours later. They had been recommend to me by my best friend who had attended a service provided by them earlier in the year. Johns intuitive and compassionate nature made arranging Russell's funeral easy. Nothing was too much trouble. John even organised to collect Russell's ashes, and within the week he had delivered them back to us at our home, saving us the hassle. Hubby was a St George supporter and i I have to mention Vicky , who's (red and white) flower arranging was exceptional. Our celebrant was a funny bugger and kept the service light hearted. I'd like a dollar for every time someone said afterwards what a beautiful service it had been. John has since followed up with a call (or five! ) to see how we are going. It is nice to know there are people of his calibre in his business. Thanks again John, Rocco, Vicky,(Anthony and Olivia), and Dave"Kind Regards,
