Here is what one student said, "First and foremost a massive big thank you to Neil for being such a fantastic mentor and guide and it was made extra special by sharing such a massive learning curve with you lovely bunch of folk. Honestly Neil you really opened up to us all in those 3 days giving so much of yourself that I really could not fault anything. You have also been a great help to me since starting out and I thank you for that."

Then a few weeks later she said, "I am now up to an average 4 funerals a week...YIKES never thought that would happen so soon, but hey, I'm loving every minute of it and for the first time in my life I can finally say I truly have the best job in the world. These 3 days changed my life." ~ Fiona Liddell
