The Harrison Family

'Dear Ed I just wanted to write to you personally to thank you so much for the amazing job you did for us following Keith's death in May.

From your very first visit to the house on the day he died through to the day of the funeral, you were thoroughly professional but also extremely kind and "approachable", and this helped us so much when dealing with the awful situation that we were in.

The funeral itself (or Keith's "Farewell" as he preferred to call it!) was obviously very sad for us, but also uplifting in many ways, and lots of people said afterwards how much it really was a true reflection of his life and personality. Many also commented on your contribution to the service and said how impressed they were, and one person even said it was "the best funeral she had ever been to"....!

This was obviously an experience that we would have preferred not to go through, but you helped and guided us every step of the way, and for that we will be forever grateful. Please could you also pass my thanks on to your family and colleagues at Sellman's, who were always so kind and helpful at every stage.

Thank you so much again for everything what a shame that Keith never got to meet you....I know he would have liked you very much!

With my very best wishes,'
The Morton Family
