On an occasion like this we were very lucky that we knew the funeral arranger personally, which made it a lot easier. We were guided through all the procedures and as we wanted to conduct our own service she gave us all the help we needed. A lovely day celebrating the life of my wife, made so much easier with the help of our friend.

Thank you to everyone at Scotmid for making what was the worst day of my life bearable. I can’t thank them enough for all They did, from looking after Paul whilst he was in their care to helping give him the send off he so very much deserved. Thank you from bottom of my heart x

  • 1 catherine patterson 4th Mar 2018

    Thought funeral would be cancelled because of red alert for the weather ..instead it when a head with us and hearse being stuck on kirkhill , the hearse door opened twice , a grieving son and grandson trying to push hearse up hill !!!! totally disgusted by the way we were treated , not a respectful send off all .. more like a black and white comedy film !!! It was people coming out their homes n 3 workmen who came to our aid .also all of us could have been killed in that weather when this happened
