"In behalf of our family I want to thank you and your staff for providing Frances with a funeral service that she would have wanted. You provided the setting that as we bid our farewells that this quiet woman of great dignity and unreserved love was always in the forefront. From the evening of her passing your staff members responded to making certain she was gently afforded the caring honors she richly earned and deserved. Our son and daughter, along with me will always remember how your driver slowed the hearse in the Seabrook driveway to let us give a final wave as she left the campus.
I was very pleased with the preparation meeting Marie and I had with you where we addressed the details of the service. Your attention to detail and clear communication gave us the comfort of knowing that her Mass and Inurnment would be well coordinated with the church and cemetery.
I feel that the only way to summarize our gratitude is to share our thoughts that you gave Frances the services and care that made us joyful that she was indeed at rest in peace and we had cause to celebrate the life of an incredible person.
I want to reiterate my sentiment about the gentlemen who handled the transfer of Frances to The Island Funeral Home. They are professionals to the core. They offered us the opportunity to be with Frances and complete what each of us wanted to say and do, individually and as a a family. I had requested that once Frances was placed in the hearse that we be able to wave goodbye as she was taken out of Seabrook. They told me that it would be a "few minutes" and when we got downstairs she was ready. They drove the hearse up to Seabrook House and around the circle and as they approached Erskine they slowed the vehicle and we were able to wave and say our goodbyes.
