As I come to the end of sending my Thank You cards for all the words of Sympathy following Mums death, perhaps on reflection I should have put Jason Morrison Funeral Services at the top of my the list.
On a very cold, wet and dark Sunday morning in early July I had a call from the hospital to say my Mum had passed away.
This was unexpected at the time although she had reached 100 years of age.
I had had in my mind for some time that I would ring Jason Morrison when the time came, I had no idea what to expect and wondered do they work on Sundays ??.
All my worries were taken care of with one phone call, Eddie from The funeral home took over right away and by lunchtime Mum was safely back in Warkworth.
The following day My eldest son and I met with Eddie at your lovely premises in Warkworth to discuss the plans we wanted to put into place.
There was a lot to go through but everything was so well organised and we were given many ideas and options for Mums send off, all of which Eddie explained with great detail and yet in such a caring and thoughtful manner it made the choices seem effortless.
Mums funeral was to be a very small family occasion and we choose not to have a celebrant , but for my eldest Son to perform this part of the service.
On the day of the service the sun shone for the first time in many weeks, and I think that made the day for me, just seeing the family including my 4 young grand children arrive at your premises in Warkworth enjoying the bright day we had been blessed with for Nans funeral.
The funeral director had the chapel set up just as we had discussed and it seemed so perfect.
It was our choice that any family members could get up and talk about their memories on Nana Lily, and most did including all 4 grand children , and I can tell you that as their Nana I was so proud of them. After the service my 3 grand daughters, decorated the entire surface of Nanas casket with great love and fun using the flowers petals and buds form the basket provided, a lasting memory for me.
To sum up our entire experience with you as our funeral Directors in a few words is difficult but simply OUTSTANDING. You are true masters in Communication, Compassion, and SERVICE and I would like to take this opportunity to Thank you so much for making my Mums final day such a memorable one.
