Maureen Christine’s singing made my mother’s funeral service a touching and beautiful experience. From our first email connection and consequent phone conversations , I knew I was dealing with a professional who “knew her stuff”.

Several hymns my mother requested were quite old and it took some research on Maureen’s part to locate them and familiarize herself with the arrangements. Maureen came through and flawlessly performed the requested hymns.

Her voice transformed the church into a peaceful, holy place. Thank you Maureen Christine  for all you did to make  this sad day such a memorable send off for my mother.
