I am sure I speak for everyone there when I say that your service was outstanding, your manner was calm, serene, soft and gentle and the things you said were informative, comforting and amusing. I am so pleased that you were involved with our service today, you made a potentially sad occasion into a soft, warm and comfortable parting. Thank you again

I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for today. You did an absoutely fantastic job. Seriously, everyone, and I mean everyone, there made the comment to me of how well worded and exceptionally delivered the service was. Personally, I can't imagine anyone more perfect for that role and you should be very proud of your work. I shall certainly be recommending your services to everyone I know. Thanks again and speak soon

Thank you so much. I've told the Funeral Directors how delighted I was they'd put us in contact with you. Mom would have been really chuffed with your help and what you said this morning. It helped me a lot

I can not thank you enough for the beautiful service you delivered for my dear Nan, she would have loved it :) Your kind words and story about Nan will stay with us all forever.... It was a special day to celebrate a special lady and dear friend...I thank you from the bottom of me heart. Your words were perfect and it's like you did know Nan with what you have said and how she was.. So many people have said that it was the nicest service they have ever been too... And it certainly was. Nan would have given you a round of applause herself if she could have. Thanks are not enough. Would it be possible for you to email over a copy of the service, I would love to read it again again and again with a SUNNY smile...Lots of Love,

Thank you so much for a truly beautiful service today. Lyndsey and I were so pleased and there were comments from all those I spoke to about how much they enjoyed it, and how beautiful it was. It will be something I will always remember, another wonderful memory to add to those I already have. You turned what could have been a very sad and somber occasion into one of celebration, and brought a few smiles to my face and a few others. I thank you for all the hard work you put in to make this a special service of commemoration and celebration of my wonderful husband Alans' life.
Our very best wishes and much thanks,

Caroline...As I'm heading back to Australia shortly, I just wanted to drop a short note to you on behalf of all the family to thank you for leading Dad's funeral service yesterday. We are all pleased at how it went - a truly fitting celebration of his memory and we know that your approach and style was a key element in that. Kind regards

Hi Caroline, I hope you are well. I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you, on behalf of my mum, myself, and my sister, for conducting such a heartwarming service for my Dad. I know that it's giving us alot of comfort to be able to look back on that day and know that it was exactly what Dad would have wanted. I'm sure you hear this all the time but so many people commented on how appropriate it was. Although we were heartbroken, it was lovely to share our memories and also important that despite the sadness, it wasn't a sombre occasion but a personal and beautiful goodbye. Thank you for taking the time to listen and for making it as perfect as it could have been. We won't forget it.
Wishing you the very best,

I just wanted to thank you so much Caroline for helping make our day so special.The ceremony was beautiful and everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended. Myself and Kate will always have so many wonderful memories of that day and you will always be part of that. So thank you again Caroline Doughty you ROCK :)
It really was a perfect day and people are still saying that it was the most emotional, touching and truly beautiful wedding ceremony they've ever been to. Thanks you soooo much for all your help in helping us put together our perfect ceremony. We honestly couldn't have asked for anything better. I'm just sorry we didn't get to spend more time with you and Peter in the evening. So many people to see and just not enough time! You're a wonderful person and you made us both very happy, thanks so much once again

Everybody agreed how wonderful you had been Caroline. You were so calm and supportive and warm. Everything you said and did made people feel at ease and able to feel whatever they were feeling without worrying about the organisation/proceedings. It was all very surreal and fast for me, but the moments I do remember clearly are just the way that we hoped it would be.
I remembered something late at night as well that summed it up for me - I didn't think about it at the time but I did notice that you had put some rosemary around the little basket that you brought for us - and even though we didn't use it in the end it showed how much thought and care you had put into everything you did. I can't really explain how comforting it is to have somebody supporting you fully like that when you can't really do it yourself, but I am so grateful, thank you.

I just wanted to say a very big thanks to you for the beautiful service which you did for my mum last Friday. It was personal and very lovely the way you spoke of her, someone actually said to me afterwards that you must have known mum very well! She would have liked it, and it was the way she would have wanted it. I can’t thank you enough, it gave us the chance to give mum the send off she deserved and say a proper, personal and meaningful goodbye, something which is a great comfort to me, and something which I shall always remember with fondness. Kindest regards
