The highest standards of compassionate service and care available

“Dear Trish, Phil & Staff,

We would like to thank you all, for all the special things you did for mum (Grace) & our family, we couldn’t have asked for anything to be any better or special. From picking mum up at Nazareth House to Trish meeting us & organising everything, such a great relief, as at this time the mind doesn’t function to well. Thank you Phil for picking us up and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful service for our mum, you were truly everything we wanted & that is what mum would have wanted too.

The floral work was magnificent, and just what we had asked for, so thank you.

I replayed the service while writing thank you letters, I cried the entire time, but it was even more beautiful.

Take care and God bless,

Margie, Greg & family.

“Dear Paul & Associates,

Thank you for the lovely service you did for our father Mick Presland.

With appreciation,

The Presland family

I would like to sincerely thank you Tim for all that you have done to make my family feel at home, in a place nobody should ever feel as comfortable as u have made all of us feel..

There are no shortcuts to the place we are going. My uncle would have been so  happy with the way everything was handled so Thank-you so much. If the world had more people like you it would be a better place. You do make a difference..

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has deep gratitude to those who have lit the flame when we just thought we couldn’t. You have been that flame in our life when the darkness began to feel over whelming.

However beautifully the job is done, we are still on the ground and in a world of reality. Your light has lifted us all up and sent us soaring. Everything we cannot say with words or show with actions you have expressed for us. You have done this with so much imagination, fun and beauty.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. It’s not about how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.

Tim, you put every ounce of love your body has and it radiates.! You are an absolute asset to Burke and Hamilton. I just wish there was 5 more of you, you made me feel like we were best friends and now I feel a little lost, hopefully one day we will meet on better terms and share a vodka or 3.

Until then take care and keep rocking at what you do!!!

your love and light is infectious!!!


Ian Murdoch’s family!

Thank you for your participation on the day of mum’s (Daisy) funeral. I was so pleased that you were the celebrant and knew mum. She is now at peace with dad and her family.

Thank you once again,

“Dear Paul,

I wanted to thank you for your help, understanding, strength & dignity whilst supporting Alison & I in making decisions about Glen. The service you delivered was very apt & it really was like you had known Glen & shared a beer with him.

Kind regards,
