Thank you for all your support and understanding through the difficult time with my dad passing away. Your kindness, empathy, professionalism and support was well above what we ever expected, nothing was too difficult to organise.Thank you all so much from the deepest part of our hearts.
Yesterday was a very fitting tribute to my Dad Giuseppe Florido he would have been honoured. Everything went so smoothly and you have been so respectful and supportive throughout this whole period. From the very first moment I spoke to you on the phone after Dad passed I have felt supported and I appreciate your personal touch. You kept me informed every step of the way and it helped being able to speak to you each day. The day you came to the house you gave us all the time we needed even though it was Sunday and a long drive for you. I am so glad we used your company for Dad's funeral. Even Father Coleman commented that you did a great job!All the best.
Thank you so much for everything. The day was a perfect send off for my brother Mark Borg and your daily communication was appreciated.
John you showed immense compassion for myself and my family.XXKind Regards

On behalf of Jeroo Mody's family (that is my son Yaz, daughter-in-law Kermiz and daughter Rashna) I extend my great appreciation in organising and helping me in delivering my sister-in-law Soonu Mody's funeral (Soonu - my husband's sister) which took place on the 21st January at Macquarie Park Cemetery & Crematorium, Macquarie Park NSW, Macquarie Park NSW.
As you know, Soonu passed on Monday 16th January 2017, around 5:00 am, at Sirius Cove Nursing Home. The Nursing Home authorities immediately got in touch with you (and me), as they had all your contact details, given by me in advance.
Your coming over to my place in Mosman, and one of your staff going to Sirius Cove Nursing Home the same day and doing all the paper work was a great help to me.
You also arranged the booking of the funeral for Saturday 21st January 2017, had to leave a few days in between as my daughter was flying out from London as soon as she was given the news.
Also my thanks to your wife Vicki for her beautiful flower arrangement, which my family commented. All this added so much dignity and positive atmosphere to the funeral, the Mody family would call "Funeral" "A Celebration of Life"
Once again on behalf of the Mody family, my great appreciation for your understanding and support in making my dear sister-in-law's funeral (Celebration of Life) so beautiful and dignified.With my best wishes
Jeroo Mody JP

I would like to thank you sincerely so much for helping my family arrange Dad's funeral. This time was so difficult for us and from the first point of contact to the day of the service you went above and beyond to make Dad's send off memorable. Dad would have been so pleased. You showed compassion and respect and your service and expertise was truly professional. Please pass on thanks to everyone in your team.

I wanted to write to you to again express my and my family's gratitude and sincere appreciation for how you handled the funeral arrangements for my late Father, Donald John Hunter.
Everything was done ins such a respectful, kind and professional manner and everything went as we had hoped, in fact, better.
From the first moment we spoke on the telephone you were genuine, helpful and honest and in such a time of sadness and turmoil, this helped me and also helped the family as when we later met it was obvious that you not only were experienced and knew what you were doing, but had a kind heart and cared for how the family wanted to see Dad off.
With the greatest level of sincerity, please do accept my thanks for everything you've done for us. lt is a shame we met in such a sad way but you are a professional and you run your company with a level of care I have not seen for many years. The level of support with engaging the RSL, the flower arrangements, taking care of the booking and support with the AV equipment just made the day go perfectly.
I wish you all the very best in your future endeavours and hope your company continues on well in the future to help and support many other families who would be as touched as we were.Kind Regards,
I hope you're well.
I just wanted to send my sincere thanks for everything you have done for my Grandma and family over the last week. The service on Wednesday went exactly as we had hoped and everything came together perfectly. Although I only spoke with you twice before Wednesday, your genuine care and concern for my family during this time and your honesty meant that when I did see you on Wednesday I felt like I was seeing an old friend and felt at ease knowing everything would be fine.
To have someone as caring and professional as yourself with our family every step of the way through what is quite a sad and trying time has been a blessing and we are so grateful for the service you provided. I am so glad Sue referred you to my Mum, we couldn't have asked for anyone better!
My sincere thanks again.My sincere thanks again.
Jessica (Jayne Sullivan's daughter.)

Dear John and staff at Funerals of Compassion.
Firstly I'm sorry for taking so long to write, I'd like to say thank you so much for taking care of my Dads funeral. My Mother was so happy, she had full trust and confidence in you. Mum mentioned that your wife did the flower arrangement, they were beautiful, please pass on our gratitude.
Most of all, thank you so much in helping me and guiding me through the whole process, I greatly appreciate it, as I was very lost that day, it helped so much. I thank your drivers for going out of their way to transport us home.
My Das had a great respect for your parents, they were wonderful people, and I think my Dad would have been very pleased for what you did for us.
On behalf of the Trovato family thank you for your service, May God bless you and your families.Regards,
John, my Mum, brothers and I wish to convey our heartfelt thanks for your support and guidance in arranging Dad's farewell. You listened to our requests, you offered advice where needed and nothing was too much trouble. Your communication throughout was exceptional. The flowers were beautiful and far outweighed my expectations. Please pass my gratitude onto your colleagues. Your service certainly lives up to its name.Thank you,
How can I describe Funerals of Compassion and especially Johns commitment. After using Funeral directors in the past I know that the genuine attitude from this Australian company is the best in Sydney for price and personal touches. I have approached John 3 times in the past few years and recently of the late Carmen Lanzon. Each funeral was approached above what I expected. I would not hesitate in recommending Funerals of Compassion to anybody or families who wants to be treated with dignity and knowing that their loved ones are looked after in their final journal of lifeThank you,
From Jill Rowan Robinson
To John and Staff at Funerals of compassion:
On behalf of Debbie and myself I would like to thank John and Vicki for the special effort and attention you paid to Debbie's Nan's funeral on 18/03/2016.
From when you first came and saw us to discuss arrangements your efforts were so appreciated by us and the whole family.
Nothing seemed too hard or complicated and when any plans by us became complicated you were calm and gave the guidance for the best and kindest result.
Your compassion made us feel as you were part of the family and not just the funeral director. I hope to tell as many people in the future of your efforts, as would this email we have sent you.
Once again thank you John and all those who assisted.
John and Debbie Veitch
