Below is a small selection of the many thank-you notes and
testimonials we receive from our families.


To whom it may concern,

I am writing to you to thank you for the impeccable service ‘Acropolis Funeral Services’ provided to my family on Monday 10th March 2014 for the funeral of our beloved Aristotelis Papoamonis.

From the initial consultation with Vicky, during the dressing, makeup and viewing with Michael and your driver Perry. All staff involved with the process made this time in our lives that little bit easier.

The staff at ‘Acropolis Funeral Services’ were very accommodating, nothing was a problem and they provided guidance during this difficult time in our lives.

The professionalism and service which kept in tradition with the Greek Orthodox faith was exceptional. I could not fault your services.

After the funeral I received many compliments in relation to the service.

Although I hope I do not have to recommend your services to anyone soon, if need be it would be with no hesitation to recommend ‘Acropolis Funeral Services’.

Kind Regards,

John and Irene Saroukos

Dear Michael and Vicky,

I wanted to drop you a note just to thank you both for the outstanding service you provided our family with my mother’s recent sudden passing. At this very difficult time your assistance and advice was invaluable in ensuring everything went smoothly.

This was particularly helpful to me as I was unsure of Greek customs during this difficult time and I know in my heart that mum would have been very happy with her final send off. If I can endorse your services to anyone, I will with the highest recommendation. Again, I thank you both for everything.

Warm regards,

Con Vallis


Dearest Vicky and Nitsa,

To the wonderful staff at Acropolis Funerals, Earlwood,

I would like to express my gratitude for the wonderful organization of my father’s funeral and all the details that were needed to be dealt with, with our consultant at first (Dimitra) she was extremely respectful and professional in every manner possible. Her compassion in our time of need was welcomed. Secondly the drivers were wonderful and respectful. Thirdly Nitsa who on the phone was wonderful and understanding and always willing to answer questions and queries no matter how silly they sounded.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that was done to help my father’s funeral run as smooth as possible. It will be remembered forever.

Eternally thankful,

Hi Vicky,

I just wanted to take a minute to write and thank you and Michael for your efforts at my mum’s funeral. The speed and ease of your efforts in arranging my mother’s funeral so quickly took a huge burden off my shoulders. You helped make a very difficult thing easier. I also want to pass my thanks on behalf of our family and express gratitude to Michael and his team in making mum’s funeral service and burial run so smoothly. All your staff on the day were very professional, yet still showed that they cared on a personal level. At no point did we feel they were ‘just doing their job’, they showed compassion and helped my family get through this most difficult time.

P.s. on the day, some family members wanted the casket opened at the church, and everyone was so happy to see how lovely mum looked, so thank you to Vivian and her team as well.

Kind regards,

John

Your professionalism and compassion made a very difficult time in our lives that little bit easier. Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Michael,

When I attended your office in Kingsford I was ready for a hard sell from your care advisor. Instead I met Dimitra. From the moment I sat down (not letting my guard down) Dimitra was kind, personable and had empathy relaying on her own experience with loss of a loved one. She took me through the whole process expertly which put me at ease and was comforting. She listened carefully to our situation and expertly adjusted your standard package to suit us.

Dimitra also explained the whole process, including how the body was going to be cared for by you- respecting our religion. My father looked at peace.

At the viewing we met Perry who also drove the hearse. He too was polite and kind and gave us the time we needed with my father. We also met Georgia who came to collect my father’s clothes. The final person we met was Kon. He was knowledgable and kind and when I asked about the missing box for collection for Dementia Australia he quickly made arrangements calmly and in time for the people who were coming to the funeral.

I had nothing but praise for your staff which I met. Their empathy, sensitivity and kindness is everything you need at a difficult time like a loss of a loved one. They are credit to your business and I would recommend Acropolis Funerals to others.

Many thanks,

Kathy Harrison

Hello,

Thank you for providing a flawless service at my mother’s funeral on Wednesday. Grieving a loved one is quite emotional and also having to organise a funeral just compounds the grief. But Acropolis Funerals staff at the office and on the day of the funeral helped with comforting us during this time. Thank you again for the service provided and we wish you all happiness and good fortune in the years ahead.

Peace be with you,

Ari


Dear Nitsa and Dimitra,

Yesterday we farewelled mum in the most gracious and dignified way, thanks to the wonderful and professional services you provided. The family truly appreciates Dimitra’s assistance in getting the viewing booked in for the Sunday, and organising for Father Steven to attend, even though we were far out of his parish. We also thank Nitsa for your patience and help in organising the paperwork for the plot involving our thia. The drivers and gentlemen at the burial who assisted us were also very professional and courteous. Thank you everyone at Acropolis Funerals, once again.

Best regards,
