A day in the life of a local funeral director

We received this email – completely out of the blue. If we ever need to be reminded of why we are doing this it’s all here Its why we are local funeral directors i suppose! . All I have done is remove the names…

I don’t know if you remember my family and I, but you did our mum’s () service for us last year.

Actually, it is a year ago tomorrow.

I wanted to say a huge thank you for making the service perfect. Your kind words and all of your help dealing with our situation. (You gave lots of good advice to us about families living with an alcoholic. Supportive words about staying strong as a family and gave us a little push to seek out contact with our youngest siblings, J and L).

A year on we are all doing well.

B took losing Mum the hardest, but has recently moved in with me and found his way again. C is having a baby (it’s a girl and they’re having her middle name as …), … is excited to be a big sister.

I know this is probably a strange email to receive.

But the things you said to us at a time where everything was so hard. That is to say, looking a bit bleak! Have really stuck with me. Especially fighting to have our youngest siblings in our lives.

So, I would like to again say a huge thank you to you for being so supportive during that time and to know that you did make a difference to our little family.
