  • “Julz and Rob, thank you so much for taking so much pain and stress from us. You were recommended along with 2 other names and when I saw your name something said Te Awhina was the one, and then I spoke to you and I knew immediately that I had made the right decision. After meeting with you, you made it all sound so easy and I knew everything was going to be okay. Well it was better than okay! Your compassion, your aroha, and your services were the absolute best. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Papa's (John Jovanovic) funeral today was beautiful and stress free. I will definitely recommend your services.”

  • “At the most trying times in our lives, we made a call to Julz for assistance and direction. What a god send she was. We lost our dad and we had no idea what happens when they die in Australia, except they had taken him to a morgue in Brisbane and left him there until Monday, cause he passed at home and on a weekend. Julz arrived to meet us and assist us, and gave us the best insight into what we should expect over the next few days. She worked with us tirelessly to get dad released back to us so she could tend to him. After a couple of days of phone calls disagreements with coroners etc we got the news that he was ready to come back to us. We called Julz to let her know our exciting news, unbeknown to us she was already at the motuary to meet dad and take him with her. Julz took care of our dad as a matter of urgency so we could have him home with us, our family and friends, here in Brisbane before heading home to Te Araroa in NZ. Her care, communication and compassion she had for us and our dad was next level. Been able to dress our dad with her assistance t for a last time was an experience. The care and respect she showed us and dad was overwhelming. Including us and making sure we were happy with his appearance and presentation was overwhelming. Making him so comfortable with his pillows etc and Chauffeuring our dad around and making sure he didn’t miss his flight etc back to the motherland and making sure the funeral director etc was at the airport waiting for him in NZ. She just went above and beyond in every process. We never had to do a thing except be there with our dad. Julz what u done for us and how u supported us during one of the toughest times was exceptional. You didn’t treat us or dad as clients but made us feel apart of everything and advised us the whole way like u were one of us. Dads body was perfect and never changed the entire of our very long trip home. You are and were amazing. We recommend you to a lot of whanau etc here in Australia if ever they need assistance. So Thank You so much, our dad looked amazing and had a send off fit for a king. This all started with u.”

  • “Julz and Robert - you were chosen for a reason, and you both went above and beyond that reason. You both have such beautiful big hearts. Julz, you have made such a profound impact on my life. The encouraging words, the strength and courage you gave me when you saw me struggling so badly will remain with me for the rest of my life. I struggle to find the words to express how I feel about how you both lovingly cared for my son. What I do know is that I am humbled.”
