It went very smoothly overall and despite my Dad being late in getting ready the limo driver was not fussed about it! It was really lovely and simple. Thank you.

Anne

Could not speak more highly of the attention that Nikki Blackham paid to us as a family and the staff of Mandurah branch. Nikki went out of her way to make sure all was right even with phone calls on the weekend. Thanks so much.

Snyder

The arrangements were excellent and from our perspective no improvements were needed.

Jeremy & Judith

Our family was completely satisfied with Leanne O'Dea's respectful and dignified handling of our mother at the funeral. The chapel was perfect: - small enough to be intimate, large enough to accommodate all family and friends. On completion of the service the box containing photo CD's, candle, crucifix, lock of hair, guest cards etc was a beautiful gesture on your part. Our family was delighted with this. I'm convinced our Mother would be beaming with very satisfied approval at our choice of Leanne O'Dea. Thank you so much! Your care was just perfect!!

Completely satisfied our expectations were met in all areas that involved the service provided by Leanne O'Dea and staff. There were a few 'little things' that were done for us and were much appreciated and did not go unnoticed.

As this was our first family funeral your consultant Suzie Campbell is a first class representative for your firm. She guided us in every step and the family thanks her for that. She guided us to Sue Eloise Henthorn a lady celebrant. The family was totally pleased with her manner to us and the service she produced was second to none, those who attended the funeral including myself said it was the best service they attended. Thank you for planting a tree for the memory of our dear wife and mother Ellen.

Jillian was great and organized everything without being pushy, with the minimum of fuss. The girls looked very smart and carried out their duties perfectly.

Lorraine and Robert

Our sincere thanks to all staff for making this occasion very special and worry free. Special mention to Meegan for her care and sympathy on our initial meeting. Meegan arranged everything we asked for leaving us worry free. Also a special thank you to Kate, who so carefully arranged Karen’s coffin of “Bears” and took time in presenting Karen to us. Everyone who attended remarked on how lovely the funeral was… Thank you all at Cannington, our celebrant and Coleen was just wonderful!

Sandra

A big thanks to all the staff, they made me and the family relaxed throughout the rosary and the funeral. As it was a very hot day it was very nice to have cold water available when needed, and also umbrellas to use in the cemetery.

To Melissa, Michael and other staff at Bowra & O’Dea, I would like to thank you all very much for your advice, thoughtfulness and kindness you have shown us during the sad moments of getting mum prepared for her funeral on Monday 19 May.

The service was beautiful and simple just as my husband Eric and I wanted it. The celebrant, Beryl Eissens, was a lovely lady and gave us just what we wanted. I thank you all very much.

Doreen

We were extremely happy with service, kind & professional staff from start to finish. Our mum looked so beautiful at viewing we could not believe it. She has suffered for so many years but your staff did an amazing job- she looked just like she used to before she was sick and we are very grateful for final memory. Florist fantastic, Celebrant A+++, video perfect and company so helpful.

Lucas and Paula

Thank you very much, the whole experience was made a lot easier with all your personal, be it the people behind the scene as well.

Alan

I was fortunate enough to have Ms Kate Hart as the consultant for our funeral arrangements and could not have wished for a more professional, caring and charming lady to do this. Ms Hart excelled in all the areas involved in Anne’s farewell and made this most difficult time so much easier for me and the family. Pure gold she is.

Russell

We were so pleased with how the day went, everything went smoothly, the staff were lovely; especially Helen who looked after me. We couldn’t have asked for more. A special mention also to Eva’s Flowers of Midland. The flowers were beautiful with the perfect colour ribbon as requested. We had quite a few comments from people about them, would certainly recommend them.

All staff members were professional, compassionate and considerate throughout, right down to sourcing a particular song requested for the funeral. Thank you to all staff for making such a hard task much easier for us at this difficult time, and to staff at the funeral home for respectfully dealing with our requests. God bless you all.

Was also very impressed with celebrant; Sue Henthorn. As my partner had to be flown back from S.A there was a lot of extra time/paperwork/money I did not expect. All your staff were lovely and so helpful throughout the process.

I have no suggestions to make and would like to thank all staff involved in the organizing of Emma’s funeral for their empathy, compassion and professionalism on this terribly sad, actually devastating occasion, of Emma’s death. All of your wonderful assistance was greatly appreciated.
