Not only were you the rock and key figure, helping us beyond what words can describe, going through the ordeal of burying a best friend who lost his life in a very untimely accident; your obvious empathy and compassion meant the world to all of us in the darkest times possible in a human life.
But also your experience in the matter, and your professionalism allowed our whole group to give our departed buddy a wonderful, touching and genuine farewell.
You helped us focus, and guided us with the right frame of mind, to build a very nice ceremony, to which the ones who participated were just able to each add their personal touch and testimonies.
Without you the funeral would not have been half as nice as we wanted it to be.
As well, I personally really appreciated the non-religious but spiritual metaphors (lighting of the candles etc…) and analogies that filled this special time, in a spirit that I know Arnaud would have appreciated. His family sure was amazed despite the pain.
Thanks again, I know you are the best advisor anyone could hope for.
