Dear Selwyn, Words can not express how grateful we are for your thoughtful support and generous assistance. Your understanding and unselfish consideration was very comforting. Ben's funeral procession was so very special- like he was. I know Ben would have thought the funeral was magnificent. Our love to you.

Dear Selwyn, Dad and I want you to know how much we appreciated your thought, care and sensitivity when arranging Thellie's funeral. We thank you very much for all you did and for your sensitive suggestions. Thellie would have approved of it all. With thanks and appreciation.

Dear Selwyn, We write to thank you for your most excellent conduct of our daughter's funeral. We felt blessed in the caring and professional manner you accorded us at such a sad time. You advised us and provided us with every consideration, before during and after the funeral and we could not have asked for any more. It is a sad fact of life that death will always be with us and most of us are ill prepared in what we need to do in such an event. Let us say that any one in the future who faces such an event that we offer our sympathy and having been through a similar sad time assure them, that they can have every confidence in your caring, compassionate and professional services. God bless you.
