5th December 2015
On behalf of our families I would like to thank you for the perfect and fitting tribute to our beloved Luisa.
The funeral summed her up beautiful, quiet, serene and a real lady.
Our love and respect goes out to you

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing people from Funerals of Compassion, John, Vicki and Joe for a beautiful and dignified service of my late father Michael Papanikolaou, John you went above and beyond for my family and especially organising the funeral in such a short time to accommodate my brother. I can never thank you enough...
God Bless you All.
Just want to say a big thank you for today. Your business name absolutely suits you perfectly. Throughout the day we felt comforted.
We came home and Sailesh said he had a great feeling with you right from the start over the phone. He had spoken to four others but got a good vibe from you.
This is a very sad and uneasy time for us and we very much appreciate your compassion during this time.
We didn't feel rushed at any moment and felt comfortable carrying out our rituals as per our elders request. Thank you.
We also appreciate the small gestures like the tissues and mint. They came in handy. And we also appreciated you asking us if everything was ok through out the time there.
These sorts of gestures and compassion isn't common in this busy world.
We thank you from our hearts for taking care of us and our Dad.
Please also thank your wife for the gorgeous flowers. It was nice of you to ask me to take them home as I would have otherwise felt it rude to ask. My home looks beautiful and bright now with flowers everywhere. Thank you.

Dear John and Vicki, David and other members of your team. You all made the Celebration of my son, Antony Healey's life a smooth and easy transition. The smallest detail was attended to, tissues and water for all who attended, the care and consideration before, during and after was above and beyond, my family and friends cannot thank you all enough, if there was a rating for such things, you would get 20 out of 10.
A massive THANK YOU to you, John and the operational staff; a truly demonstrably professional service. If you ever need me to endorse the business, please be at liberty to call on me.
We just want to thank John and David for being so caring before and after the funeral for my dear mother-in-law, 'Pat'.
The funeral was a celebration of her life and everyone mentioned what a lovely service it was. You both made the sad day turn into a beautiful farewell.
I want you to know how appreciative I am for the lovely way in which you conducted my beautiful mums funeral. The flowers were OUTSTANDING. I am just so happy with them and received so many comments on how stunning they were. As far as coffins go, the coffin was beautiful also and am so happy we upgraded. Thank you so much. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to have looked after my mum. Your staff were beautiful.
Sadly this is the second time we have had to use Funerals of Compassion in a little over two years. Our dad died recently and there was no question who we would use after my brothers funeral. John and his team arranged an excellent service for dad. Firstly a requiem mass at dad's local church, and then a memorial service at the crematorium. It was just beautiful. Nothing was too hard. John was simply there for us, making sure we had everything dad and we wanted for his send off. Thank you John for your support of our family at this very difficult time. We really appreciate how far you went to make sure everything is perfect. You took all the stress out of the event and we could just concentrate on dad, which we loved. I've had lots of people ask for your contact details since then, so everyone noticed all the extra little things you arranged.
With our deepest affection,
Jo-Anne and Amanda Ryan, and all of John Ryan's family.
We cannot thank you enough for helping us give Mum a beautiful send off.
You were a blessing in disguise coming into lives at this time and not once did you make us feel that any of our questions or requests were a bother.
The work that you, your wife and your team do is so important Don't stop doing what you do with such caring, compassion and sensitivity.

Please do not think that this note is an afterthought I deliberately and intentionally waited before dropping you a line to thank you for your wonderful professionalism, support, care and consideration, both before and after Carmel's funeral.
I thought, by waiting a while I would be able to express my eternal gratitude in a meaningful way as I had hoped that the emotion of losing her would be less and I could put some words together which were appropriate, but alas, it is not so.
I will be forever in your dept for the professional way in which you advised as to the selection of the Coffin, the perfect balance of the flowers, of the choosing of the Mas Booklet and your ability to just relieve me of the need to do anything other than just accept your assistance.
I could not adequately describe how many people commented on the whole service, that it was just Carmel, perfect with nothing pretentious.
Again, thank you, thank you and God Bless yours faithfully
I had to unexpectedly plan my fathers funeral and two months to the date we had to plan my best friends mothers funeral.. I couldn't have asked for anything more. You went above and beyond the services went smoothly no hick ups no stress. John you have been so good to both our family's.. I want to thank your whole team there, the flowers were amazing, the services you offer are outstanding.
Absolutely amazing company. The service that you guys put on for my Dad was perfect. Everything run so smoothly and both John and Rocco were so friendly and caring.
Couldn't ask for any better and you've made everything so much easier for my family. Can't thank Funerals of Compassion enough. Such a caring family business.
To John and all the members of Funerals of Compassion who helped make our sad day a memorable day in the nicest possible way.
Your eye to detail and the respect you displayed to our own Mother and Church was exemplary and greatly appreciated.
We can not thank you enough for having helped make the loss of our muched loved Mother and Grandmother (Barbara Bubic) more Bearable.
With all our Thanks
Marie (Barra), Tony and Paul (Bubic)
I would personally like to thank John and his staff for their wonderful service, attention to detail and the warm and compassionate manner in which it was given.
At a time when I was not myself and coming to terms with the loss of my father John took the worry out of the whole process and went above and beyond what I would expect.
The service was a wonderful goodby for my father, he would have approved. The flower arrangement was spectacular and the casket was excellent, fit for a King.
David the Celebrant presented a very humane and thoughtful service that many will remember.
Oh and the service was recorded so friends that couldn\'t attend will also share in the service.
Thank you for all the support during this difficult time.
Dear Rocco and John, thank you from the bottom of my heart to both of you and your colleagues for the outstanding guidance and reassurance you gave me for my fathers funeral (Norman Prescott). You both went above and beyond with your help right from when I first came to you to the follow up phone call you made to me afterwards. You were all more like friends. I would without a doubt recommend Funerals of Compassion. And the arrangement of flowers were so beautiful on the coffin and it just made me melt. It was a sad time but you were there for us and a thank you to John on the day.
Oh my gosh. I don't know how to thank you enough John. The whole service you provided for Pop was perfect, you guys really think of everything and we had so much positive feedback. Thank you so very much xx.
Please understand my brothers funeral isn't until 8/8/14,but the sincerity of how every detail of this extremely heartfelt time; considering my brother's death was overseas, the company name (funerals of compassion) does not say enough, exceptional compassion, Thank you for your detailed help.
A few months ago we lost a very dear friend of the family, it was a very difficult time.
I want to thank John and his team for making such a challenging and problematic time, bearable and manageable on behalf of my family and especially me, thank you for all your help and guidance during a sad and very complicated time.
Thank you for the wonderful services you gave my mother Veronica, it was beautiful just as she was, you took the pressure and stress of myself and family in a time of great sadness. Everyone said we did her proud the flowers, bright in colours, mum would have loved them. The song I can’t stop loving you: has true meaning.
