"Thank you, Asha, Tom and Katie for making Jim's funeral go so smoothly. Tom looked after us so well that first day when we just walked in the door, and things kept working smoothly with each contact we made. I do not know how much went on behind the scenes, but I do know that not knowing is a sign that you all did your job with professionalism and compassion.

On behalf of all of us who knew Jim, thank you, and we will be sure to pass your name on to anyone who asks. You made one of the worst days in our lives a source of sad, but fond memories, with no unpleasant connections to uncaring attitudes or problems we needed to solve."
