  • Hello all,

    I just felt the need to drop you a note to thank you Andrew and the whole team for the dignified send off the team gave to dad yesterday.

    You and Giovanni made a difficult process bearable and Carmen and Matthew when we attended the viewing, but I need to really mention Peter and Sam on the day, in particular Peter who everyone said was so respectful when we stopped at the Dad’s home and dropped off the rose – was a fitting goodbye!

    And of course the way everyone was so nice to mum on the day, like Sam reaching out and the end of the service before leaving to again offer his condolences.

    And the flowers were magnificent!!

    We are all so very grateful

    Kind Regards

  • Dear Andrew & Laura,
    I wanted to formally express my gratitude for once again providing a sense of family when I reach out to you to help when a loved one has passed.
    I have attended many funerals over the years and the difference between the service you provide compared to others is exceptional care and service above and beyond what one would expect. Every detail is considered, most recently my close friend who I recommended to you said ‘it feels like family’. I can’t tell how much that means to me when recommending a service at such an acutely sensitive time.
    Being able to rely on you thinking of every detail, transforming an emotional image of what you want for your loved one and being able to deliver on that is simply extraordinary.
    I wanted to formally share my thoughts and thank you for all that you do that may often go unnoticed, I notice, and I value this more than words can express.
    I am personally grateful to be able to continue to reach out to you as I have for more than 15 years. My very best wishes for your continued success for you and your colleagues who represent you and your family as extended family to those you serve.

  • Dear Joanne,

    I hope you’re keeping well.

    I wanted to express my gratitude to you for your thoughtfulness, professionalism and kind attention in ensuring that my dad’s funeral ran smoothly.

    The passing of a loved one is a very difficult time and the organisation of a funeral can be overwhelming. However, your sensitivity and understanding from the time you met us at the Cardinal Freeman Aged Home until the funeral service was over, was very reassuring and supportive. For this, mum and I thank you.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew, Peter, John, Francesca, Carmen and all the staff for their contribution to what was truly a lovely celebration of dad’s life.

    May Andrew Valerio & Sons continue to thrive and may you and your families stay healthy and safe during these extremely challenging days.

    Warmest regards,
  • Dear Andrew, Peter and all ‘the team!

    Thank you for your kindness and care during this time of sadness from Winston Cheng’s Family.

    See-Ming really appreciates your care! We all thought dad would have been very proud & happy with his “celebration” of a wonderful life!

  • Dear Mr Valerio,
    Thank you all very much for conducting our mother’s funeral in such a professional and sensitive manner.

    I did not meet you, but I would like to commend two of your staff.

    Gina drove me and my sisters to Rookwood in a very respectful and steady way. But we were all also pleased when she laughed at one of our funny stories – it gave a bit of human warmth to the journey, and after that we were all much more relaxed.

    Joanne Bucciarelli was very kind and respectful when she visited to plan our mother’s cremation. She was quick to understand that we felt more comfortable with plain, direct language. She did not immediately attempt to express a false sense of intimacy, but always conveyed a restrained and sympathetic approach. Her kindness on the day was a great comfort. By the time we had all experienced the funeral service and witnessed insertion together and she was driving us home, we had established a genuinely warm relationship with her.

    We very much appreciated her support on the day.

    Yours sincerely,
    Charlotte Clutterbuck
  • Dean Joanne, Francesca, Laura & Andrew,

  • Hi Andrew and team,

    Thank you so much for all your efforts during this last week and for the kindness and care you have shown my mother. You gave us a wonderful parting memory for my father. Most importantly, my mum felt the whole day was what dad deserved.

    Thank you for your advice. We really appreciated your experience and knowledge and the way you guided us through the decisions that needed to be made.

    The priest was wonderful and was able to make us smile and reflect on dad’s life at both the rosario and the funeral. It was the right balance of Italian and English. Angela was brilliant, flowers were beautiful and James Doig was lovely.

  • Good morning Andrew and Laura.

    I wanted to convey my personal thanks to you for your service during this very trying time. Your support and guidance throughout the past week has been greatly appreciated and your respect for Lida, Antonio, Roger and the family has been invaluable.

    Joanne’s care was lovely also, and your whole team provided us with the most personable and warm-hearted attention.

    I would like you to know that we felt privileged to have had Bishop Geoff Robinson as the presider of the Mass – his ability to combine the English and Italian languages so well, along with his gentle and eloquent approach was beautiful.

    Matthew’s musical talents were very impressive and I am so happy that he was able to provide such a meaningful dimension to the memorial and celebration of Lida’s life.

    Thank you for being so accomodating, patient and understanding as we worked together to create a most memorable and appropriate requiem service, which Lida herself, I am certain, would be most pleased with.

    In all my sadness I am grateful for your presence and comfort as we faced the difficult passing of my little sister.

    May God bless you and your whole team as you continue in your very important work of pastoral care.

    With warmest regards,
    Dina Serong

    Rodney – thank you for all of your help today. It was all very smooth and you and your colleagues were so very professional and compassionate.

    Kind regards,
  • 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

    I also wanted to thank you all for the beautiful kindness and patience shown to us throughout the organising of our mum’s funeral, dressing mum, the viewing and rosary and especially on the day of the funeral from picking us up, in the church and the cemetery.

    Losing someone you loved so much is an horrendous thing to go through, I really didn’t know how I would cope I was in a daze and confused on the day and prayed for strength and my prays were answered God sent me beautiful people. Your guidance, care, patience, respect and professionalism was amazing and you made that day so much easier for me.

    Thank you so much and may God bless you all.

    Warm Regards,
    Rina Mercuri

  • 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,
    Sheridan and Sam Femia
  • 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
  • Hi Andrew,
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Laura and your wonderful staff for the wonderful care you gave my Mother-in-law Lina Pito.

    The string musicians and opera singer , flowers , cars and the Monsignor Vince Reddon were all first class.
    Thanks again to you and your devoted staff for making the funeral so special, I cannot tell you the number of compliments my wife Ignazia and I received regarding how beautiful the whole ceremony was.

    Kind Regards,

  • 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.
