I just wanted to let you know I have done my first funeral service.

It was in a small chapel with a burial afterward.  There was no microphone!  So, I practiced my voice projection and cast my mind back to the exercises we did.  Paul, it worked.  I was heard and understood, by the people inside and those standing by the open double doors, including the Funeral Director.

Thank you for your time and patience, the skills I learned with you I use daily, not just in my work as a celebrant but in all aspects of my life.

I still enjoy saying “eeeh pet” in various pitches!

Many thanks, Paul, you are a star!
