Grace Milligan Shinnie

30 March 1926 -11 August 2012

Le Pine Funerals, Whitehorse Road, Box Hill,

Burial Service, Eltham Cemetery. 

Hi Julian,


I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank-you with all my heart for orchestrating

and conducting such a very warm service for mother Grace. It was if you had known

her for years and this came through so well and with such warmth and affection.

For what it is worth, she would have adored you.


I just couldn't let the day go by without offering you my very sincere thanks

for your efforts and for your guidance, support, and sympathy. It was truly appreciated.

Whilst I truly hope it is not for some time I hope that you would consider us worthy

in supporting us should my father pass in the future.


Please take care but I truly cannot thank-you enough for what you have done for

me and my family.


Thank you

Gordon

Dear Julian,


Thank you very much for all the work you did to make Don's funeral come

together in such a warm and positive manner. That was no easy task given Don

has such a large and extended family!


It was definitely a heartfelt and memorable occasion, many people have remarked

upon how enriching they found it. It had parts that were organized and planned

and other parts that were quite spontaneous and sincere, just like Dad!


Thank you for trusting in the family members and allowing the service

to evolve, best wishes.

I just wanted to thank you for acting as celebrant on the occasion of the funeral

Everyone said they thought it was a very good funeral – one that Phyl herself

It still was Vivaldi and it may have been a better piece than the part we chose.


Thanks again
