Who knew that I would hire a caterer for a funeral gathering? I certainly didn't. But after a neighbor recommended that I give Padraic a call, I did just that.My mother passed away recently and after the funeral I arranged for friends to pick up food from a local restaurant. I had friends set up tables and chairs that I rented and arranged the food. I thought the food expense was high but paid it because I liked this restaurant. I had the food expense, rental expense and several hours of labor in setting up tables with plastic tablecloths, arranging the chairs and the food table. I also had to clean up to take care of.
Unfortunately, just six short weeks later, my father passed away. This time I called Padraic and asked what he could provide. I was amazed to learn that his company would come to my home to set up tables and chairs he would provide with cloth tablecloths, a spread of food for lunch with coffee and desserts. All for much less that I paid just a few short week ago. He would come to clean up and pick up his tables and chairs too!
This allowed me to have my friends with me at the funeral providing me support instead of setting up at my home. The home looked wonderful, the food was excellent-especially that pasta salad-yum! I even overheard one of my friends commenting about how good the coffee was too!
Such an awful time for me was made a bit nicer with Padraic and his company.
