“Dear Leena and Carol,
I wanted to send a warm thank you for the wonderful job for my mother’s celebration on Saturday. The service was excellent, I think all guests left feeling full, well watered and enjoyed the event as much as could be expected of a memorial service.
The hall looked beautiful and you were both so helpful and accommodating over the planning process.
Thank you again and my family and I will see you at an upcoming Kroaften event.”
-Warm regards,
