"Susan, I cannot thank you enough for all the useful information we have found on your website. It has saved us hours of stress at such a difficult time. thanks again." Regards Jayne
Hi Susan, I just can’t thank you enough for these beautiful words and sentiments. I so appreciate your generosity and kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Yvonne
"Thank you so much for providing this site. I was able to find songs and poems to help me with my mother's funeral. Last night as I scanned all the helpful ideas, I was inspired to write a much more personal eulogy than I ever could have had I not found your web site.We lost our Dad 9 years ago and had a pretty generic funeral. I feel truly blessed to be giving Mom a service that is so personalized.Thanks again. Susan Jasper
I am 73 years old and cried very few times in by life, but I did this early morning when I read my brother's poem. You managed to get everything that I detailed into the poem, for which I am grateful. Harold had a lot more people that loved him than I ever realized and that has come to light in the past few days. They will All get a copy of this poem. Jerry Allen
My Father n' Law's celebration of life was so much better than we had anticipated and the poem was so perfect! I'm so glad I found you online to help me create such a wonderful thing for Paul. It meant a lot to me and my family and others in attendance.
I was able to say most of it without crying but I did need to pause at times to stop the tears. There were some good chuckles too which made reading it aloud easier.
We received so many compliments on how the entire service went that day. Some people said it was the "best" funeral they had ever been to because it wasn't as sad because of all the things we did to celebrate Paul.
People were coming up to me and saying thank you because the POEM touched their hearts and those that new Paul well laughed at some of the things I mentioned.
We ended the church service with 20 classic cars bringing Paul and his favorite El Camino home to his house. It was a long line of cars for 10 miles and it was AWESOME!
After the long day was over, my husband thanked me for helping him plan the service and said watching me read the POEM was his favorite part of the day. That meant a lot to him and to me, so again I say thank you!!!
You are both really amazing at what you do. Very talented! I appreciate all your efforts working with me to create something so unique and special for me to give to Paul that day and to keep for a lifetime. Sharlene Neal
I am truly overwhelmed with the beautiful poem you have written for me, it is my beautiful husband in every word, thank you so very much for putting my words into this. I can't thank you enough, you are fantastic with words. As you can see, I am very, very happy with what you have written and don't need to change a thing xx I would love to think that I can read this myself and I so want to, but the tears will probably stop me and someone else will have to do it for me. Loved how you used my words "bestest mate" thank you. Kind regards, Ruth
The poem is beautiful! It's even more than I expected. Thank you so much and it will be an honor to be able to read this to everyone in memory of my Dad. Thank you so much and I will pass your info on to anyone else who is looking for an amazing poem of a passed loved one. -Chris
Judith, Your reputation precedes you and it’s not an exaggeration. Great work ! Richard Schaefler
Thank you so much for this. It means so much to me that I've been able to get everything I wanted to say into this and it's written beautifully. I am so impressed with all the attention to detail and the service and attention you have given. In a time of sadness you have made me find something I can be proud of for my grandma. Emma Shaw
Well, we sent mam off with a funeral to remember mostly due to your fantastic words. We made her proud standing up in front of a packed out church reading words and phrases that reflected the wonderful lady we knew as 'our mam'. The whole congregation applauded when we finished, someone commenting that the only other funeral that they can remember applauding at was Princess Diana's. Many commented that "it was the nicest funeral they'd been too" and that was partly due to the wonderful words we read out to make the saddest day of our lives into the celebration and thanksgiving for the brilliant years and memories we made together as a family. We heard more laughs than cries which comforted my dad and us. The horse shoe pic not only represented the luck mam had in her life but how lucky we were to have had her as our mam, grandmother and as my dad has had to have her as a devoted wife. I can never begin to say a big enough thank you for your poetry. Continue the fantastic work as I am under no doubt you will bring huge comfort to many more families through your fantastic talent.
Forever grateful, Leigh
Thank you Judith, from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful poem and keepsake.
"This is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Thank you so very much! I have cried happy tears every time I have read this poem. You don't know how much this means to us...so happy I found you on line!! " Sandra
Oh my HEAVENS!! I'm a puddle of tears!! It's perfect! You have such a gift. Maybe you should have been a rapper. I'm teasing. That was simply beautiful and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It's her. Well done! Renee
It was my mums funeral yesterday and the poem you prepared was the talk of everyone; they loved it and my mum would have too. So pleased I got in touch. I read it out and it made the day easier for me because it was just her to a tee. Once again many many thanks
"I bow to your creativity and talent for writing poetry, I really do. This is such a beautiful poem, I love it. It’s exactly what I was hoping for. There is only one minor change that I would like to make to it. Where you have written: You've taught me to love I would like to change it to: You've taught me to be ever grateful and thankful with the intensity of a samurai. This is the main lesson which I learned from Rachael, to be grateful and thankful for all the things that I have;- my good health, no pain and the ability to enjoy each day to the fullest. All the things that she didn't have due to her illness. Everything else which you have written is just perfect including the cherry blossom design around the poem. Thank you so very much. I will be very proud to read it out at her remembrance service. I am so happy that by chance I came across this website when I was searching for poems." My Kindest Regards Helen
It was such a relief that at such a difficult time all I had to do was tell Judith a few simple words to describe my mother and then she took those words and hers and made it so beautiful. It's like she understood how I felt. I highly recommend her service. D.
It is very good, I have tears in my eyes. I didn't know how you would be able to incorporate all of those things that are unique to my mom. Thank you SO much! I can't wait for her sisters to read this tomorrow."
"This is beautiful. You took my words and thoughtfully arranged them to read lovingly with grace. Thank you. " Kim Dittrich
I wanted to thank you so very much for my poem. It was so touching to friends and family . The priest read it to all and was so moved and touched by it. I placed it in a beautiful frame. I added white roses and flowers to the corners along with two doves. The priest blessed it and handed back to me and said you should keep this, it's so beautiful and mom was so touched to hear it. Friends and family were also so touched by it. I had people I didn't even know come up to me and say beautiful and then hug me.
Once again thank you. Doreen
Thank you for capturing the true essence of who my wife was, and our relationship. Words simply cannot express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation. I just pray that I have the strength to stand up and read it on the day. Kind regards." Mr Miller Click here to Read the Poem, written for Mr. Miller
