SOME KIND WORDS

From families that I've looked after:

~~

Kirk did the most exceptional job for my step father's funeral. From start to finish Kirk was kind, professional, attentive and an absolute pleasure to deal with. During such a difficult time it was very comforting and so nice for everything to just feel "easy" with Kirk. He did a great service. I would definitely recommend Kirk in the highest standing to anyone considering his services.

~~

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help during that difficult time and for the professional but respectful manner in which you conducted what was a very sad and heartbreaking time for myself and our families. I can assure you that if the subject comes up, I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is in interested. Best wishes Kirk and once again thank you. Ross

Thank you so, so much for everything you did for my dad's funeral on Saturday. For a sad and difficult day, it went as perfectly as I could've hoped for and I'm very grateful for the beautiful service you organised. It was calming and had happy moments of reminiscence while being respectful to Dad and to the sad part of the occasion. For me personally, it was a very helpful step in the grieving process. Many of the guests said it was the nicest funeral service they'd been to. One even asked if you'd known him personally, because you did such a great job of speaking 'to' him and of him. This is exactly what I wanted for my dad - a service that wasn't too miserable or stuffy, and honoured who he was. Your bow to the casket before it lowered was an especially lovely touch. Sincere thanks for making a really awful time easier and bearable. We will definitely recommend you if anyone needs a celebrant for an event, happy or sad, and I will be thanking Bowra & O'Dea for recommending you to us. Eleanor

We would both like to sincerely thank you for all you did. We were very impressed with the obvious care and attention you gave to every aspect of the service. You set the tone for a celebration of Brearley’s life and was just what we wanted. We’ve had lots of feedback that as far as funerals go, this one had humour and a fun overtone and Brearley would have loved it. Much of this can be attributed to you and we do appreciate it. Many thanks, Glenda and Bill.

We were referred Kirk to officiate my father-in-laws funeral. It was really sudden and a lot to get through. First impressions of Kirk were so great, he made everyone feel comfortable and did up the most amazing service for us and it was really personalised to suit my Father-in-law perfectly. On the day of the funeral Kirk conducted the service amazingly even with a little toddler chatting away throughout, many of our guests also said how great Kirk was. We are so thankful to Kirk for all he did for us and we hope to meet him again under happier circumstances. Thank you, Ellyce

Kirk was our celebrant for Dad's funeral on the 10 December, 2020. What a beautiful service he did. I know Dad would have loved it. People are still commenting on the great job he did. He always involved our elderly Mum, I often heard her saying yeah during the service. Thank you Kirk we know now if we need a celebrant you are the one. Kelli Bryan

Hi Kirk we just wanted to thank you for yesterday, we all thought you were amazing and the service was lovely. We had so many nice comments about you at the wake. We really appreciated the work you put in and everything ran so smoothly. Thanks again, Jasmine

Kirk recently conducted my Dad's funeral (26.03.2021) and he was amazing. From the second we met him he put us at ease and showed he really cared. The service was beautiful and everyone commented on what a beautiful job he did, it was like he was part of the family and knew the man my Dad was. He was just amazing and I couldn't praise him highly enough. Thank you Kirk for making a very difficult day beautiful x

We feel so happy to have found you albeit under sad circumstances. Our very warm thanks for the special empathetic way you lead Ian’s service for him. The introduction you wrote was so thoughtful – it was as if you really knew him. From the start 2 weeks ago, you have been a pleasure to work with. Your contacting, attention to detail and meeting we had with you made things so much easier for us at this sad time. You must be a wonderful help to folk in their first time organising a funeral in particular. Thank you again, Fay and Elaine.

Dear Kirk,

Thank you so very much for being a brilliant celebrant for our mum's memorial service yesterday.

Everyone thought you were wonderful and the service was so lovely. I couldn't have asked for a better wingman and am glad you were there to help me finish off mum's eulogy. We have enjoyed meeting you and sharing our story. Hopefully, we will meet you again soon.

Shelley xx
