Memorial Endorsement

Recently my sister inlaw (and very close friend) Julie sadly committed suicide in Hamilton at the age of 55. I was totally devastated, she was cremated two days after she passed which was out of my control and against everything I believed in and I know she held dear, so I made a promise to her to have a memorial service in New Plymouth were she grew up and had family and many old friends. 
Alone, with my partner offshore and my brother in Waikato Hospital I struggled, I contacted Lyndsay on the Sunday morning and by 5pm that evening she was at my home getting me organised. We decided to have the memorial at New Plymouth Sport Fishing and Underwater Club on the Friday. 
Lyndsay was a god send, her empathy, professionalism and organisation skills were brilliant, I also felt I was dealing with a dear friend. The service went really well, Lyndsay making everyone feel comfortable and adding some very special touches, even adding some light humour, as Julie would of loved.
Thank you so much Lyndsay, I couldn't have done it without your support.
