Maggy was a friend of my brother who was murdered in June 2006. We were unable to hold his funeral until 2 months later. I traveled from Canada to be there and only met Maggy at the actual ceremony. She was sensitive to my brother’s beliefs and followed his known desires for his funeral, even as far as his suggestion that he wanted to have the irreverent playing of “Bat Out of Hell” in the service. She included this as the recessional music at the end. Anyone who knew Jon understood that this was his desire – he had a wicked sense of humour. Although I only know Maggy through my brother and that one ceremony, I have since followed her career with the BBC religious program she recently ended, her comedy gigs and other ceremonies she has posted on-line. I believe her to be a person of great heart and integrity who will make herself at home in any faith institution. She will follow your directions and needs. I would definitely recommend her to others who want a non-traditional ceremony.

    Ruth, thank you so much for this. You were so brave… It was such a privilege to lead Jon’s funeral – and wasn’t it so wonderful to see how much he was (and still is) loved? Mx
