Always look on the bright side of life!

Gordon's unique tribute that got heads turning

Always look on the bright side of life! That was one family’s wish for their Dad’s funeral, and Gordon from our Motherwell Funeralcare didn’t disappoint with his multi-coloured suit that turned many heads on the day.

The family described their Dad as “a bit of a lad” and requested that the funeral be full of bright colours. Gordon showed them a photo of his unusual suit and they were instantly delighted with it! The funeral was a day of great sadness but also joy in knowing that their Dad would have approved of the service.


Gordon was moved when the family got in touch to say thank you after the funeral. This is what they said:

“We are so pleased at the personalisation, precision organisation and complete professionalism shown by the team at Motherwell Funeralcare. It is always a difficult time, however they made us feel that everything was taken care of for my Dad’s funeral - right down to Gordon bracing the most multicoloured suit you will ever see an undertaker wearing. My Dad is definitely laughing about his funeral - just as he wanted. Always look on the bright side of life!”

Gordon commented, “I’m so pleased I made a family happy doing the job I love. That’s what we’re all about - doing what’s best for the family always.”
