To Andy and Debi

Absolutely wonderful service from start to finish. The flowers were amazing and Andy spoke about our Dad like he knew him for years. Lily who looked after us was once again amazing. Highly recommended by us.

You all looked after Dad until he was laid to rest and as hard as it was, you all made is easier for our family to cope.

Thank you for your kindness, understanding and compassion during such a difficult and heartbreaking time for our family. We cant recommend you enough to our friends.

Thank you!

To Andy, Debi and all the Searson family

Thank you so much for the wonderful compassion, help, understanding, warmth and kindness during what was a difficult time for myself and my family.

From the way you professionally handled such a delicate and personal matter in the funeral home to the day of the funeral where you ensured that everything would run smoothly. In our eyes it was the perfect day for a very loving and gentle lady.

We are beyond thankful for all that you have done for our mother, grandmother, auntie and sister and from the bottom of our hearts we would love to thank you for all the care you provided us during this time.

A massive thank you for all of your kindness and support and the flexibility of you all. 

You all made a very difficult and emotional time so much easier for all of us. 

The funeral was lovely and everything was carried out to perfection, your thoughtfulness is a gift we will always treasure, we are all touched beyond words

Dear All

Just wanted to say how appreciative we all are of the compassion and sensitivity that you have shown over the last few weeks during this very difficult time when dealing with my family, from collecting Mary right up until you dropped us to the Bellair Club, you have shown nothing short of professionalism. I have attended many funerals with Andy and never been disappointed with his hearted and sometimes humorous and sympathetic speeches.

To all the Searson Family.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my husbands funeral a day me and our family will always remember. Although a very sad day it was conducted with the upmost care and attention. The care and attention we received from Debi and Andy was second to none.

Once again my family and i thank you, for making John’s final journey one to remember. The Searson family did John proud xxx

Brilliant service for Dad (Tony) today - beautifully crafted and wonderfully delivered. Perfect for us - and Dad would have loved it too although he was not one for the limelight!!

Well done Andy and Debi - you are amazing - true stars ....

Hi Andy

We wanted to say a big thank you to you Andy and your family for all the help and support you gave us in organising my Dad's, Mick Gillen's, funeral. We have never had to organise a funeral before, and you were recommended to us as being a lovely family firm which was fitting for us as our Dad was a true family man.

From the moment we walked into you funeral service in Winter Road we were made to feel at ease with your son whilst we waited for you to return. When you returned you were kind, friendly and easy to talk to. We then hit you with the 'tall order' of trying to organise our Dad's funeral by the Friday of that week (we were in your office Monday morning), due to family commitments. You and your family pulled out everything for us and managed to make it happen, which we are really grateful.
On the day of the funeral you quickly sorted out the car arrangements for us when a couple of elderly relatives turned up unexpected at the house, thank you again. You also made it extra special for us for us (and my Mum) on the day when my Dad's grandchildren and close family were able to walk behind him down to St Mary's Church.
Thank you again for making such a hard time easier.

I just wanted to send you an email before I go back to Australia today.
I wanted to say a big thank you to you, Debbie and Andy for all the hard work you did for mums funeral. I have never had to organise a funeral before and had no clue where to start. I have to say the best thing I ever did was deciding to call you guys. From the very first phone call where I spoke to you and told you we were financially not well off, you were so caring and understanding and you treated me with such respect and dignity and you helped me plan the best funeral we could afford for my mum.
I felt instantly relieved after speaking too you. I am so sure that all of your other clients must feel the same way as well. Debbie was so lovely and reassuring when I met her and she listened to me babble on as I was having a bad day and she showed me such respect and empathy. As for Andy... well can I just say there is absolutely no one else who we would have wanted to do my mums service.
We walked into meet him on Tuesday afternoon and he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. He really wanted to know as much as he could about mum and asked lots of questions about her and us and made us laugh a few times as well. He made my brother who was very close to my mum feel at ease and feel good about the meeting. When it came to us seeing mum I realise we were there for quite a while and poor Andy probably didn't get to leave the shop until nearly 7pm but not once did he disturb us he respected the moment and let us have it in peace and in our own time.
The service he gave was just lovely. I imagine my mum looking down on it and giggling along. We didn't want anything depressing but we did want it all to be about mum and how great she was and Andy did it perfectly!! It felt like it was a family member talking about her. Everyone said what a lovely service it was and they even said Andy was so good they thought he must have been a family member!
Lots of lovely memories with a few laughs thrown in... just perfect. Sorry for the rambling email I just wanted you all to know how much my brother, family and I appreciate the love and respect you have shown us and my mum over the last few weeks. We will certainly be recommending you guys!
Thank you again and have a great day! Alex xxx
