A welcome help and support

« A big thank you to Géraldine, for her availability, her efficiency, her kindness and her competence, in these sensitive moments when the administrative formalities are far from our concerns, and when organizing a beautiful funeral in tribute to the deceased is far from being obvious. The help and support are then more than welcome, and the price amply justified. »

We were able to enjoy the farewell ceremony with the whole family

« Thank you so much for your help in organizing the last stage of our mother’s life. Thanks to you, we were able to focus on the essentials knowing that all the other elements, whether administrative or organizational, were under control. The fact that we were able to speak with you even before our mother’s death was a great help, because apart from a few details to be settled, we were able to enjoy the farewell ceremony with the whole family. Your discreet and efficient presence on that day allowed everyone to live this unique moment intensely. »

I would never have been able to take care of all the administrative procedures at the same time as the moving

« After my mother’s death, I was very busy clearing out her flat because I had a short deadline and I was alone as an only child. It’s a good thing I mandated Geraldine, because I could never have handled all the administrative procedures at the same time. Her efficiency and professionalism were remarkable. »

Her services have allowed me to take better care of myself and my family

« It wasn’t until my mother passed away that I realized that although the situation is already difficult, there are still a number of administrative steps that have to be taken that won’t wait until the grieving process is over. Luckily, I was recommended the services of Geraldine Juge, who, with her mastery of both the bureaucratic side and the organization of funerals, was able to handle these heavy tasks with flexibility and without ever being indiscreet. Her services allowed me to take care of myself and my family, which is easy to forget when one is surprised by a bereavement. »

Being old and without a family, I was anxious at the thought of having to manage everything

« I heard about Separate Ways from an acquaintance and I was really happy to know about this service while my husband was at the end of his life. Being elderly and without a family, I was already anxious about having to deal with everything that awaited me in addition to my emotions. Geraldine really took care of everything.

Geraldine is attentive to every detail and above all to the family’s wishes

« Geraldine was of precious help in organizing, in a very short time, the farewell ceremony (reservation of the venue, obituary, music, contact with the celebrant, organization of the reception, etc.). Geraldine is attentive to every detail and especially to the wishes of the family (the florist was a friend of the family). She also supported us in all the administrative procedures, which allowed our family to concentrate on our emotions following the death. I would like to thank Geraldine Juge for her advice and support. »

The ceremony was beautiful even though the deceased was neither a believer nor a conventional person

« We called on Separate Ways when our friend and daughter’s godfather passed away. This death was a huge shock because no one expected it and moreover it happened on December 25th. We and our friend’s girlfriend were distraught because the administration is closed during the holidays. But Geraldine was there! Her availability and reactivity were a great help in this period of mourning and grief. Geraldine knew how to propose, never impose. The ceremony was beautiful even though the deceased was neither a believer nor a conventional person. Without hesitation I recommend Geraldine’s professionalism. »

I insisted on doing everything myself, I regretted it afterwards

« I had heard about Separate Ways several months ago. When my husband passed away, I did not call upon Mrs. Juge because I wanted to do everything myself to take my mind off this painful loss. I regretted it afterwards. Firstly, because I didn’t manage to prepare everything I had planned but above all because I realized that I hadn’t taken the time to focus on my sadness. I really would have liked to have had this help. »

I regret not having dared to inform him about your service at such a moment

« A friend of mine recently lost his father. I had already heard about your service but simply didn’t dare to inform him about it at such a moment. I regretted it afterwards when I found out that it had been very complicated for him to organize the funeral. »
