Recent press and radio programmes have featured Funeral Directors who have a canine friend in their office.
We have been very fortunate over the last 10 years to have Freddie, our black Labrador, as a constant in our office. His picture is on our website. Over this time he has acted as receptionist, therapist and brought comfort to many clients. Quite a number of clients would call to see Freddie long after we have concluded their loved ones funeral arrangements for them.
On numerous occasions Freddie would either be sitting quietly with a family discussing arrangements or acting as a Nanny to children waiting for their parents.
Animals can bring great comfort at low points.
Sadly Freddie lost his own personal battle against illness in January 2018 and is greatly missed by all of our team and a great number of his friends made in our office.
