Dear All,

David and I just wanted to write and say thank you for taking care of our beloved Sooty last Wednesday.

We are totally bereft now that she is gone. The suddenness of her illness, finding out on Monday that she was seriously ill and having to make the difficult decision on Tuesday morning to put her to sleep was awful. I contacted Cherry Tree Tuesday morning, not long after making the decision to do this and spoke to Mark.

Mark was wonderful and patient in dealing with me at a difficult time. My husband and I wanted to give Sooty the send off she deserved as she was a dear, loved family member. Mark arranged everything and treated both us and Sooty with the upmost dignity and respect.

Mark arranged for Sooty to be collected from our vets and placed her in a lovely basket with blanket over her, so we could see her when we came on Wednesday. Being able to spend some time with Sooty was greatly appreciated and has helped us tremendously.

We will always miss her, always, but having her ashes close by in the sleeping cat statue is a fitting tribute, and a comfort.

Thank you for letting us see Sooty again and for treating her with such dignity and respect.

We were very happy with the service provided. Please pass on our thanks to Mark. It is nice to know of Cherry Tree. We will come back when the time comes for her brother to join her. I am recommending Cherry Tree to our friends.

If you wish to put this on your website please do, I have enclosed a picture of Sooty for this purpose.

Thank you again.

Diane and David Bentley-Ryder
