  • Maria and I would like to thank you so much for the assistance given to us during our difficult time following Mum’s passing. From the first phone call you took control of the situation and made the task of saying farewell to Mum an easier journey. Mum’s funeral ran very smoothly and I know quite a few people have commented on the very respectful and professional way that the day ran. We will never forget your kindness, support and assistance. We would also like to thank your team who were always very patient and proficient. I do not want to single anyone out as everyone was so helpful, but Joanne was terrific!

  • Dear Andrew and Staff

    This is a small token of our appreciation for the way you looked after me and my family during the lead-up, and on the day of the funeral itself.

    You’re down-to-hearth, yet professional manner comforted us knowing that the preparation of dad’s funeral was in excellent hands. Even on the day of the funeral all concerns were looked after by your wonderful staff.

    We were also impressed by the extras you added to the day, such as bottles of water, tissues etc. What touched me the most was when we drove past dad’s house and we stopped to pay tribute, and the driver placed a rose on dad’s doorstep.

    Andrew, thank you for also for adding an extra person on the day to help us with the lifting of the coffin – your kindness was a blessing.

    We received all positive comments about the funeral, and I know that in part it was because of your friendly and professional manner shown on the day.

    Everybody also commented on how wonderful Matthew and Fr John Cooper were.

    Thank you & kind regards,
    Minette (Denaro) Swales & family

Also the little things your team did to make the experience more bearable did not go unnoticed.

    He was Eleuterio Germani funeral on 19th Oct 18.
    I can’t thank you enough for the amount of support and care that was taken throughout each and every process. You all made everything so easy and stress free for us.

  • Many thanks again Andrew and your amazing staff for the outstanding service provided for Pietro Pantuosco. As always so well organized from Rosary said on Sunday night to the memorial service at the chapel. So much respect and empathy given helped Donna, Tony, and family make this emotional, sad day easier to prepare. Andrew please pass on our thoughts to Father Cooper for his beautiful rosary and dedicated mass, family and friends all commented how outstanding it was, especially when father was so ill. We will keep him in our prayers.

  • Hi Cathy,

    Can you please pass our great gratitude to Andrew and his Laura, and your whole team, for your excellence and professionalism with which the details and execution of Nonna’s funeral was carried out. What must always be a deeply stressful and difficult day was made so much more bearable, particularly by those small extra touches, like water bottles for the line-up, and snacks in the cars. We felt your kind touch at every step. Thank you all.

    With Kind Regards,

  • Dear Andrew,

    Thank you so much for organising the wonderful funeral service for our father.

    Words cannot fully describe how overcome we all were, it was exactly what dad would have wanted.

    The whole day went so well without a hitch.

    Your staff were all amazing taking care of our every need and always so polite, respectful and patient. Their guidance and help took most of the stress of the day away enabling us to give dad the send-off he truly deserved.

    The Giuseppe Verdi band was dad’s number 1 request, they played beautifully and added that special touch.

    We really appreciate how you personally were there for us, guided us and respected our wishes during this emotional and difficult time.

  • Good Evening Andrew and Laura,

    A week has passed since we lost a very special person in our lives, Rocco Fedele.

    I am writing on behalf of my family to offer our heartfelt thanks to you and your wonderful team. Your care and guidance right from the very first phone call has been amazing. No question was too difficult, every request made possible.
    I would like to thank the reception staff, Peter who assisted us with arrangements, Maria Natoli, who led us beautifully during the Rosary, and everyone who works behind the scenes. Your drivers also displayed such professionalism, yet showed great warmth.
    Your presence at the funeral was so greatly appreciated, the support of your staff on the day was incredible. Wherever we turned, someone was available and ready to lend a hand, You clearly care about what is important to a family during such times of sadness, and this is what sets you apart. For this we are truly grateful.

    Dad’s funeral was special, just how we imagined it would be.

    Thank you once again, from my family to yours.

    Warmest Regards,
    Josephine Triulcio

  • Dear Andrew,

    I am emailing to compliment you on delivering a first class professional service. From the initial phone call to the final journey ALL your STAFF added a little bit of magic, a ray of sunshine, coupled with an abundance of professionalism, to make an emotive and difficult occasion much easier to deal with.
    You gave my mum Nancy Iannello on the 24th May 2017, a wonderful service, the same as you gave to my son three years earlier.
    I can only praise your organisation.
    Your staff are a credit to you and hopefully you will share this email with them.
    Personally I cannot thank you enough.
    Once again, thank you so much for your professionalism and your attention to detail with regards to Mums funeral. Your thoughtful words and caring nature was also very much appreciated by our family. Everything was taken care of exactly as we asked. Many thanks from all of us.”

  • I have known Andrew & Laura Valerio since 1995. During this period of time I have witnessed how they behave in both their personal and professional lives. They are an example of integrity and professionalism in all that they do and take great consideration and sensitivity when interacting with people.
    To say that Andrew support by Laura met these standards is an understatement. Naturally my mother and I wanted my brother’s memory to be honored and that the funeral reflected his life. Andrew in his discrete and respectful style organised everything, though of everything and delivered on everything that resulted in a beautiful day honouring my brother’s life.
    I know that myself, my family and many people in the community are happy to support the establishment of Andrew Valerio & Sons in the Funeral Service industry building on their commitment, expertise and experience.
