" Keri, I am so grateful to you for the support, professionalism and care you and your team provided to me and my sister as we navigated her final days and enduring wishes. From our first discussion with you, Tara and I were placed at ease as Tara conveyed her wishes. I was so grateful, having complete confidence that you could deliver the service that Tara desired, but also create such a special and memorable day for our family and friends. 

The service was perfect! All who attended (in person and on live stream) commented on how wonderful it was and how well it captured Tara’s life and wishes.

Keri, I am eternally grateful for the support and guidance you provided to Tara in her darkest hours, she was anxious to ensure her passing was well planned and not a burden on our family and others, you provided the care and confidence to alleviate her concerns, putting Tara at ease knowing that all arrangements and her wishes would be fulfilled.
Thank you so much." 

"Last month, for the first time, we had to plan a celebration through our tears. Our warrior Paulie had remarkably survived more than a decade longer than his cancer prognosis, now finally succumbed and there we were, unsure what to do next as we started thinking about planning our first funeral.

"We were lucky to discover the extraordinary services by Keri from A Better Way Funerals and I want to ensure that anyone on the Northern Beaches can reach out to Keri when they need her. Keri carefully laid out all of the options, gently kept us to required deadlines, coordinated with the incredible Anne and Mel from Northern Beaches Home Nursing plus our GP, prepared all of the paperwork, wrote and hosted an exceptional service. Keri ensured the best possible experience for the most important family celebration we’ve ever had, the farewell of our beloved Paulie." NICI ANDRONICUS & FAMILY

"Hi Keri, I just wanted to say thank you for the most professional commemoration ceremony you delivered to celebrate our beloved Jill’s life.

It has been over 3 weeks since Jill passed, and I’m still choked up trying to find sufficient words to convey our appreciation for the kindness and support you provided to us. From the first phone call and throughout the process you were so supportive, caring and understanding and, above all succeeded in making the day so memorable and as minimally confronting as possible. 

Everyone commented on what a beautiful setting, the coffin and flowers so amazing and how your expertise and contribution made the sadness of the day so much more than just that.  

Keri my sincere appreciation for your expertise and contribution to the day, one we will always remember with love and cherish forever." DAVID LARK & FAMILY

“Dear Edwina & Keri, I write to thank you for your help in conducting Philip’s funeral service. Your words and opening remarks were chosen with care, and delivered beautifully. You created a smooth transition between each part of the commemoration, and your closing words were most appropriate. The family, and friends who attended, all thought the service was beautiful - not such an odd word for a solemn occasion - but something beautiful to remember Philip by.Thank you most sincerely for your caring understanding which helped make decision-making that little bit easier and created a fitting tribute to my husband.”  LOUISE

“Hi Edwina & Keri, On behalf of Belinda and I , we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your help regarding the passing of Dad. You were so helpful, professional and understanding and most importantly helped us to achieve what Dad would definitely have wanted- a religious free cremation on a budget. Dad was very clear with his wishes of a cardboard coffin and we know he would have hated the ‘sharks’ having any involvement. We won’t hesitate to recommend you to like minded people in the future, Kind regards xx" VICKY & BELINDA
