Everything was taken off. Made the stress of organising a funeral a lot less worrying for myself and my family. The younger members even had the benefit of the announce for Facebook done for them. The staff at Scotmid from David Shaw at Portobello to Christine who took us to Seafield were excellent and were above and beyond what we expected
