BLOG – June
After our first funeral last month, we received a wonderful review from Claudia, for which we are very grateful. Claudia said the following:
‘On the 20th May 2020 we laid my brother Trevor to rest. Diane could not have been more helpful in the lead up to the day, on hand for me whenever I needed her help or support. Trevor did not pass at the easiest of times or circumstances Diane and her team were compassionate and dignified, especially when difficulties arose on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend Forget me not Funerals as they went above and beyond to make sure our final farewell to Trevor was more bearable. Thank you again.’
We were so glad the Funeral went well, and that Claudia was happy with the way her brother was laid to rest. It is so important to us that we make our clients feel that we did our best for their loved ones. It was a very hot and beautiful day at North East Surrey Crematorium which is a lovely setting.
Since then, we have been concentrating on marketing and getting our name known as we did not get to have our launch party due to coronavirus, so we are reliant on Social Media at the moment. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before lock down is over, and we can arrange to get out and about more and get in touch with more of you.
In the meantime, if any of you are having a hard time coping or have suffered a bereavement and need to talk to someone, then please pick up the phone. I am always happy to listen if you need me to or point you in the direction of someone who can help you more.
Some wise words from Dr Kathryn Mannix Author of 'With the End in Mind' an excellent book I would recommend you to read about End of Life Care.
How to be a grief-friend.
'Be there (phone, text or letter during lock down). We don't need to 'make it better.' That's not in our gift. Listen. Commit. 'I don't know what to say' is a perfectly acceptable greeting. Just don't ignore, turn away, jolly along. Listen.
We can do that.'
Warmest Wishes and Stay Safe
