A sampling of the words of gratitude from our families...

On behalf of Mom, Jean, myself and the rest of our family, I would like thank you for your empathy, support and guidance throughout the past two weeks. You have exceeded our expectations. Our interactions with you, Bruce, have always been with great spirit, with the positive goal of giving Bill a respectful exit to this life. We’ve had a few laughs at almost everyone’s expense, but all in good fun. When we had questions, they got answered promptly. When we had issues, you helped us resolve them. And, you let our Mom talk about Bill, let her grieve, with empathy. The day of the funeral you had a great staff helping you out. The ushers had me quietly chuckling numerous times, and were so caring. A big thank-you to them. The serving ladies were on top of everything. My wife, Jan, enjoyed the few minutes she spent with them in the kitchen helping out. She said they had a very nice visit. It is very evident that all those helping you are family and friends that do an exceptional job of working together. Ensure you give them all our thanks. We’ve had so many comments from family and friends about the beautiful service and how much of a celebration of Bills life that it was. Thank you for that. Our service was as close to being perfect as it could have been and was very memorable.

On behalf of our entire family, we wish to thank the Meaningful Memorials team for the loving, kind, dedicated and professional manner in which you served Wendy and our family. The Celebration of Life was beyond my expectations. We received many very kind and loving compliments on the celebration. We have and continue to refer your company to friends along with people in general that we meet and discuss funeral services. May God please bless you, Norreen, all your family, along with all your team and their families for the very valuable and important service you all provide for so many in our community.

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for everything you did for us for Dad’s service. You made a terrible situation one that was seamless and without worry. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for being not just a business, but caring, loving and professional people.

Heather and I want to thank you so much for helping us with Doug’s cremation, memorial service and scattering ceremony. Thank you for suggesting ABC Restaurant for the memorial service. It was very private and the buffet was very good. The scattering at the cemetery was very moving, and I believe exactly what Doug would have wanted. I’m glad I took your advice. It’s always difficult to say goodbye, but you helped us every step of the way. We’re so glad we found you, Bruce, and we wish you all the best.

My brother, sisters and I wish to say thank you so much for all you did. I can’t begin to express how grateful we all are. Words cannot say how we appreciate all you did. Dad’s memorial service was just as he would have wanted and exactly what we wished for him. We will always cherish the beautiful heartfelt service you put together. Your kindness and compassion in helping us through our darkest time will always be remembered.

Just a brief note to thank you so very much for your help, advice and all you offer (paperwork!) – as part of your service to families. I was so thankful my brother and his wife from Red Deer had been to a funeral up there and gave me your card. They were so impressed. The timing was perfect!

Jennifer, Gillian and I would like to thank you so much for making what should have been a difficult and sad experience, a rather simple and warm chain of events which culminated into the final resting place for our dear Jack. There were so many positive words regarding your service and the day itself. Several of them have indicated that they plan to change their arrangements to mimic our day. Your professionalism and warm personality will certainly grow your company substantially.

Thanks again for all you’ve done for our family in the passing of our mom. Thanks especially for all the helpful advice for me personally in my role as executor. Thanks for your patience in all of this, too, and all the paperwork you’ve filed on our behalf. You truly have made my job easier and have gone the extra mile.

I cannot thank you enough for all the help and compassion you gave our family during our time of sorrow. Thank you for your professional manner and genuine advice as we prepared to say our goodbyes. The service was so special and your comforting words meant a lot as you carried the service to help us portray the kind of man Dale was and what he meant to all of us.

Thank you so much for making a difficult time a little bit easier. You were so easy to work with and so fast and efficient. The service was beautiful and my mom would have thought so as well. Thank you for all the details that make your company stand out amongst your competitors. You do a great job doing your job, so thank you so much for everything.

We just wanted to thank you so much for doing such a great job of officiating Tim’s funeral. We had many positive comments on it: big, long, different – so Tim! Your words were so well thought out and appreciated by our family.

Judy and Family
September 11, 2012


Words cannot express what a blessing you have been to our family. Jo-Anne was in a much better place after finding you. You eased her mind about the financial burden of a funeral and she was able to concentrate on mourning her husband. You treated our family wonderfully, compassionately and honestly, and we could feel that from the first time you met with us. I cannot thank you enough personally for what you have done. You will now be our go-to guy for every funeral we have in our family (nothing too soon, I hope!) and we will recommend you to everyone we know. You are a breath of fresh air in the funeral business and we appreciate the time you spent educating us about our options and about the funeral business. I think that was a huge part of what you did for us – educating us, and I for one appreciate that every much. I hope you continue to work at what you are doing for a very long time because I think you are truly doing what you have been placed on this earth to do. Thank you again so much!

Before I head off to bed (and hopefully sleep), I wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did at the memorial service for my dad. Lots of friends and family commented on how wonderful your service was and wondered where we found you. (We will pass on your name as needed). Great job with the son-in-laws and the auction. They were still trying to figure out how you figured it all out.

Valerie
June 4, 2012


We would like to thank you for your excellent care, compassion and above all professionalism, in the service you provided for Dad. You have proven without a doubt that you can and do provide the same excellent service at a fraction of the cost of other funeral providers. Once again, we thank you so much.

Thank you again for doing the service for Mom. People enjoyed the service and I enjoyed the humour. It does not matter what the occasion, people always need to laugh.

It is with great pleasure that on behalf of the Red Deer Hospice, I thank you for your generous gift of time and talents as you officiated at our Memorial Park Service. The feedback from staff, volunteers and families was very positive. How fortunate we are to have you helping us make a difference for our families. The ability to honour their loved ones with a memorial planting in the Hospice Park can make a difference in their grief journey.
