Dearest Coral,

Our heartfelt thanks for your involvement in the preparation of mums service and your presence today.

You did an amazing job and mum would have been smiling down on us. You are certainly in the right career and have an ability to make services such as today flow perfectly and feel as they should.

I’m at dads, I’m my pjs, having wine and chips.

Kind Regards and thanks again,

Just wanted to let you know how grateful and thankful my mother (Brenda) and
myself (her daughter) are for your services for my fathers funeral that was
held at Sutherland today.

I cannot express how fantastic celebrant Coral Kortlepel was in speaking
with Lances eulogy. In such an emotional and stressful time everything that
she spoke about of my father was exceptional. Even the guests who attended
all commented on a great job she did. Thank you so much Coral!

Dear Coral,
On behalf of myself and the rest of the family, thank you very much for making the service so lovely. We appreciate the care you put into the entire process and your gentle and thoughtful guidance through such a difficult time.
I hope if we meet again it is through much nicer circumstances.
Take care,

I’m so blessed to have had you there with me.

Greetings Coral.

Thank you for performing the beautiful service yesterday for my sister Robyn Gail Williams.
You were so supportive and the family appreciated your compassion, calmness and organisational skills. You were wonderful and we were so lucky to have you there to facilitate the celebration of Rob’s life. Thanks again Coral. Cheers

Hi Coral

Thank you so much for your beautiful email and for helping us during this time of our need. I definitely believe that mum sent you to help guide us and have you as our beautiful celebrant for the service. No other celebrant could have honoured my mum as much as you did yesterday.

Thank you for running with the whole event that I had detailed in my mind, and helping me bring it to life on the day – even with the perfect rainbow photo that you brought to us. Thank you for your words of wisdom – which helped to keep me calm during my tribute and gave me the strength I needed to say to honour my mother.

I am so pleased with how we honoured her given the restrictions and know that she would have been thrilled to have been celebrated in such a way – right down to my gold dress I wore and the champers and dancing to a song that she wanted played.

The messages I received back were so amazing. Best funeral ever some people wrote. Aunty Mazz said – Bloody Brilliant, probably one of the most beautiful funerals I have ever attended. I cried my heart out and just loved what we had to say. My mother in law who is a staunch Catholic and knew mum said – very moving and tastefully organised. This was a massive compliment from her. My friends sent me photos of themselves with champaign glasses having a toast and we received a video from mum’s friend dancing away to the last song. It really was all so incredible. Everyone has said it came across wonderfully in the live stream and that the funeral was so perfect for mum.

Thank you so much for your help in organising everything

I would love to invite you to the memorial celebration that we have for mum next year. I know that should would love you to attend as much as we would love to have you. I definitely hope that our paths cross again under brighter circumstances.

Hi Coral,

I would personally like to thank you on behalf of all of the family of Shirley Annabelle Stubbs. Mum’s service was very special, a beautiful and fitting send off to a wonderful mother and grand-mother. Your poise and delivery was so dignified and sincere, we could not have chosen a more suited celebrant.

Thank you also for the time you spent with us planning and offering advice and suggestions for poetry & music, each recommendation was just perfect.

Those that tuned in to the service or viewed the recording commented on how beautiful the service was and how the livestream enabled them to feel inclusive.

Matt & Jeni in the USA were so grateful that this technology was available and commented on how perfectly you delivered the service.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Kind regards,

Melissa Goodwin



Dear Coral,

Thank you so much for conducting my mother’s funeral today. The feedback from the UK re how you were was great. My brother particularly said you were great. Coming from him means a lot. Thank you very much Coral.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Coral

Thank you for your part in making a very sad day into a day that we could celebrate the life of Jean, she deserved the very best as she always put her three boys first and was very proud of them.

Take care

Thank you ever so much for yesterday Coral, the Family and I were so pleased with the outcome and your personal touch gave the occasion the finesse and class we were hoping for.

It certainly had to be one of the best services I’ve ever attended. If only we had a little more time for speeches, there was so much more that could’ve been said although we still did paint a fairly good picture of my Dad.

Again Coral, many thanks.
Kind regards
Wayne Inglis & Family
