“Just a letter of thanks for the professional way you conducted our fathers funeral.
From the first phone call, to inquire how to take our Dad from the nursing home into your care, and then the appointment with you, the whole sad occasion has been seamless and thoroughly professional from the outset.

We are glad we chose Gateway to handle the funeral, as every detail was taken care of, and the service was just the best and your choice of civil celebrant, we could not have wished for a better send off for Dad.

The car was on time. The Aussie flag on Dads coffin was a great thought, and the way you all helped Isobel, to and from the service was first class.

I will recommend your company to anyone that has to go through the sadness and loss and then arrange a funeral, for a loved one, your professionalism and attention to detail, took all those arrangements out of our mind at such a sad time.

Thank you again to everyone.”

Kathy and Peter Lion
