Richard my family and I would like to thank you for the compassion and dignity you treated us with on the unexpected sudden death of my sister Joy.You made this difficult time much easier to bear, and took over all arrangements for us. From the beautiful Floral tribute you ordered for the coffin to Chris the humanist who listened to all our stories and told them perfectly. Once again our most sincere thanks on how professional and attentive you were. We would highly recommend Newcastle Family Funeral Directors.  Brian Ann Gayle Mandy and Keith
