“Dear Paula,
Thanks for your email. I chose Jerrams because I was brought up in Woodstock and Jerrams always provided good service to the folk in Woodstock and surrounding areas.

I did struggle a bit just after my Mum’ death as it seems incredible that you will never see that person again. I am fine now as she had reached a ripe old age and no longer had any quality of life. My father died at 62 and that was devastating and I still mourn his loss as he never saw my children.

Your company was wonderful and really helped me, particularly you. I do hope they pay you extra for your counselling skills!

My thanks to all of you for giving my mum a wonderful send off.”
