Dear Steve,

 I am writing to thank you for the most beautiful service you gave in respect and honour of RO my dear friend. I am so pleased that R had the service she wanted, and, I’m happy to know that she had read about you and seen your photo as I had taken her the information I printed off.
 I want to thank you for supporting me re my speech. I truly did not think I would have the courage to stand up in front of everyone, but with your encouragement I did it, and am so happy I did, despite falling off the podium afterwards. I had to laugh at that later on at home with my partner.
 Once again thank you very much for everything. You made the day very special in R’s memory. 
VR, Beverley
It is only now that I get around to thanking you for your excellent work. All of C’s friends and relatives present at the service thought you gave a brilliant speech and would like to extend their gratitude.

Dear Steve,
Thank you for the moving and personal funeral and life celebration for my father. You captured the essence of him beautifully. The celebration was very well received by all those in attendance; family and friends, humanist and those of faith. A number of people spoke to me at the wake not only praising the ceremony but also saying they have finally found the kind of service they want for themselves.
Best regards,
SH, Driffield
Hi Steve
We just wanted to thank you for the lovely service you delivered for our son  last Friday at Harrogate Crematorium. Your words were skillfully and sensitively woven together and the tribute accurately reflected D’s personality. Everyone commented on what a lovely service you gave and those who did not know D got a real sense of the person he was. Thank you so much for the copy of the ceremony too.
 D and J J, Harrogate
Very efficient, friendly service at meetings. Would recommend Steve to others.
 JM, Driffield
Mr Emmett was kind and considerate at all times. His manner was gentle and reassuring and judging by the response of my friends who attended the funeral, he was quite the best person to have.
RM, York
Steve performed a lovely service for my mum. He put together the facts of her life very well and everybody was very pleased with the service. He kept us well informed throughout the process.
KM, York
Steve took the time to meet us and gather my mother’s life story. The tribute was well prepared and delivered at the service.
PB, Harrogate
Steve – what a gem to humanism. A real pleasure to meet at a difficult time. It helped that my J read Terry Pratchett books.
S, Selby
Lovely man. Family and I thought he conducted the Celebration of Life wonderfully. It meant we could have the ceremony where we wanted.

Thanks for yesterday, Steve. It was just what we were after. Much appreciated.

Hi Steve,
I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you from myself, M and all the family for the lovely service you gave for our dad yesterday. We had so many people coming up to us afterwards and commenting what a wonderful, befitting service it was and that was thanks to you.
Kind Regards
FG, Darlington
Many thanks for yesterday. Lots of nice comments about the service…not many people had been to a humanist service.
MR, Hull
Hello Steve,
Just a note to thank you for the excellent service you provided at Dad’s funeral last week. The family were very pleased with everything and we all feel that W had the best possible send off.  I think most people went home with a good feeling about the proceedings.
Thanks again,
JR, Cambs

Just a quick thanks for doing G’s celebration of life for us. Many people have said how wonderful it was. They liked your words.

flirtomatic dating login  Dear Steve

sitios citas online I wanted to let you know how very grateful the family are for your services yesterday and over the last few weeks.  But more than this, I wanted personally to thank you for all your words yesterday, the kindness you showed my Mum and the sensitive way you managed everything.We were all so very moved and touched with the words you chose to honour my Dad.  From our relatively brief meetings you skilfully extracted the very essence of his personality and life and reflected these yesterday with beautifully chosen words and perfectly selected passages.  As a non-religious person myself I felt at moments that I had been able to obtain that peace that the believer has in the spiritual through your words about the cycle of natural elements and the natural words – it was truly beautiful. Thanks again so much for giving us all an experience which (despite our tears!) was not sad, was supporting and uplifting and calm and felt so very, very right.

comment rencontrer zidane Thanks for Dad



Hi Steve

Just to thank you again for the beautiful service that you did for my dad . We had so many comments about how lovely it was and how you made it so personal and delivered it in such a compassionate way. Many people have said that they would like a humanist funeral and would like you to do it, so I hope that they talk to their families about it as it’s something that many people don’t discuss. Ha – however, It means that you have to outlive many people ! Once again thank you . Best wishes,

I would like to add my 100% positive feedback for your web site so that others seeking a professional Humanist Funeral Celebrant will be reassured that no request is too trivial or too much trouble for you. We appreciated your availability, guidance, management of the difficult funeral director, supportive approach and attention to detail in planning for the celebration of our mother’s life which far exceeded my expectations. My mother would have been delighted with her funeral and described it as perfect.

With many thanks

Jan, London

Thank you for a fantastic service for my brother. As sad as it was for me and mother and brothers, it is one of the best funeral services I have been to (and I live in Ireland – it’s a pastime there!). Thank you,

AC, Cork

I am emailing you to say a heartfelt Thank You for officiating at my brother’s Humanist funeral ceremony. I felt that the ceremony was everything that S would have wanted. Dignified, respectful, reassuring and compassionate. S was a positive person whose fulfilment in life was supporting others using his knowledge and experience. As his health declined, S and I had the opportunity to discuss and plan various aspects of his funeral prior to his death so I was able to follow his wishes. I found your advice beforehand about the content and length of the ceremony invaluable. Thank you too for your contacts from first meeting you until the actual day which reassured me that all was going as planned. I felt that your words were warm, sensitive and reassuring for family and friends to hear. Many of his friends told me that they had not been to a humanist service before but were both surprised by ( in a positive way) and, comforted by it. You gave the ceremony a dignified framework around which those who loved him were able to give their more personal tributes. Both N and W’s contributions were so emotional. I was delighted too, to hear the rousing uplifting rendition of Jerusalem at the end. S, undoubtedly would have thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony and would have felt humbled and secretly rather pleased too, to see the 120 or so people who took time out of their daily life to come together to remember him.

HB, Huddersfield

Thank you so much for the way you conducted the ceremony yesterday. Many people commented on it and said it was the best humanist funeral they had attended.

Hello Steve

Thank you so much on behalf of my family and me for the lovely service you put together for our Mum. It wasn’t an event any of us was looking forward to as you can imagine, but we all agreed it was very appropriate and would have been just what she would have chosen. We felt it was a fitting tribute and celebration of her life rather than a mourning of her death.

CC, Driffield

Hi Steve,

I am sending you this message of thanks for the beautiful celebration of K’s life on the 15th October. I could hear K speaking all you spoke about as if she were just saying them on the day.
You gave  such a beautiful address spoken with sincerity that I and fellow members of K’s friends and family were deeply touched and helped us through this difficult time.
Thank you also for the copies of the ceremony.

It was a wonderful service yesterday. I was dreading it but you and X got me through it.

Hello Steve
Just wanted to say thank you for leading the memorial.  You created a detailed narrative from the individual strands and I learnt things about M I hadn’t known before. It was lovely to be in the garden with the sun and wind on our faces – M was such an outdoor person that it was very fitting.
Best wishes
K, Scarborough

Hi Steve

I just wanted to thank you for helping to make yesterday such a special day, and one that I can remember fondly. Everybody thought it was the perfect memorial and I’m sure mum would have approved. Thank you so much.

A, Midlands


Dear Steve,

I know we spoke on the day but I cannot thank you enough for the way you portrayed D. All the family said that what you said about him was absolutely spot on. All were so happy with the service. So not just from myself but from the whole family thanks once again.

IM, Hull

Dear Steve,

This is just a quick note to place on record my thanks for your kind attention to our needs over the past few days and the lovely tributes to my mother that you delivered during the funeral service.  I have received only positive comments on the service from our family members and friends, some of whom had never attended a humanist (and somewhat jovial) service before. My relations in Australia were able to see the whole of the service and my aunt has commented on how wonderful the service was.

Dear Steve,
Many thanks for the hard copy of the service and the CD of the music.   The pdf is appreciated also and I shall email this round to everyone.  We are all very grateful to you for the service and think everyone agreed it was a very fitting and appropriate service for Dad and we think he would have approved.  You have been very professional throughout and it was a pleasure to meet you.  I wish you all the best for the future and thanks again.

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the service you held for MH yesterday. You played a big part in making the day one to remember, for all the right reasons. We’ll all miss her but she had a great send off.
AG, North Yorkshire

Just talking with Dad and he was thrilled with the way you conducted the service today. Everyone had nothing but praise for you. Once again, thank you!
