Many Thanks again.
Dear John, Vicki and Staff at Funerals of Compassion I`m sorry it's taken a while for me to write these words to you both to thank you on behalf of myself, my brother and extended family for your very sincere love and support during the loss of our much loved brother Kevin and then the unexpected loss of our sister Esma.
We are so blessed to have met you both to guide us through a very difficult time and to give such a beautiful farewell to our loved ones with such dignity and grace.
THANKYOU for not only being there through the funeral planning stage but also when I needed the support afterwards. Your kindness and compassion is unmeasurable. Your guidance was from the heart and that showed throughout the service and with your choice of beautiful flowers.
Your hand of friendship will be enduring.
May the angels watch over you.
God Bless you both.
Shirley Brown and families.
To John and Staff at funerals of compassion. Could not recommend these fantastic people high enough. Their sincerity and professionalism was a joy to experience at a very difficult time. The loss of a mother is something we all fear, but when it comes, to have your mum leave with such dignity is a testament to this wonderful group of people. I was previously in a job where I had many dealings with Funeral companies, and this wonderful group of sincere people are a true credit to the industry.
Dear John and staff at Funerals of Compassion, when everything seemed so hopeless,in you walked and helped us through it. In such a time of sadness you made things so easy, we were able to contact you at any time of the day as well. You promised a great send off for my Dad and that is what he was given. We Can`t thank you all enough,your caring and compassion shined through on the day.
We are so glad you were all part of the day to give our last goodbye to our Dad, and the flowers were absolutely Beautiful.

Thanking you John from "Funerals of Compassion" with gratitude for your recent services for my sister Kerry. This is the second funeral in 12 months you have arranged for my family John, your services are Faultless, which also included bringing my sister home to Sydney from Tweed Heads, you made this possible at a very affordable price. At a time of sadness, John you were contactable 24 hours a day. The special extra details were appreciated e.g the flowers were Beautiful. I will always recommend "Funerals of Compassion" to others
Thank you again,

I give special thanks to John and Bede for their genuine caring and attention to detail.

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,

"To Rocco and your team at Funerals of Compassion, On behalf of my mother and the entire family, I can't thank you enough for the support you showed throughout this most difficult time. When I rang you in the early hours of the morning that Dad passed away, your compassion and professionalism was outstanding. 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. You and your team certainly went 'above and beyond' to ensure our needs were catered for. Again, thank you..."Kind Regards,

"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,
