My son died by suicide - a shocking reality for our family. At the time I was in a mess and didn't know where to start in dealing with a funeral for my beloved son. Our family had used Gee & Hickton a couple of times due to family deaths and they were fantastic, so we used them again for my son. Honestly, without the amazing service, care and love of Gee & Hickton, particularly from Jenna, I don't know how we would have gone through the service. During Covid in particular, it was a logistical nightmare, but they made it work. The time frame, on the day, was tricky because I there were so many tributes for my son, but they made it work. The delay, caused by all our tributes, affected the timing at the Crematorium, but they made it work. We had people around the world who couldn't fly in, because of Covid - once again Gee & Hickton made it work with a flawless live internet access to the entire funeral. Heaven only knows how Jenna achieved all this with what she was up against, but I want to extend a massive thank you to her and her team at Gee & Hickton. We got through this horrific day, and it's challenges, purely due to the work behind the scenes, by them, to ensure everything ran smoothly from first appointing them as our Funeral Directors, all the way through to the end, and follow up. Blessings to you for helping us give our son the send off he deserved, nothing but the best!
