'K' July 2012

Dear John


I am writing with reference to the cremated remains that you so kindly transferred from our funeral home to the deceased family in Mexico for us.


As you well know there were hiccups along the way, this I believe mainly due to the logistics and the handling of paperwork in Mexico and not all the effort put in by yourselves. This I hasten to add was exemplary as far as I was concerned as you and your company acted professionally and kept me informed throughout.


I would just like to say a huge thank you as the nature of the parcel being delivered was of course of great importance to the family concerned. We are unduly grateful and would recommend your services without hesitation.
