Our deepest and humblest thanks to the whole team at Ese Tatupu Funeral home for their constant empathy and understanding especially Luana and the girls, for giving us the opportunity and allowing us to mourn our dear Uncle. We were very apprehensive of where and whom to go with, but of course with the word of mouth it was then recommended we should go with your services. The entire process from day one with Luana was outstanding, we were given clear direction and instructions of what to expect from the time our dear loved one was uplifted and transferred to the funeral home. We cannot express the huge gratitude for all the assistance and guidance we were given during this time. This kind of service is exemplary and shows that your Team at Ese Tatupu are of a high level in service that exceeds anyone’s expectations. We will highly recommend you to all our family and friends without a doubt.

With the recent passing of my dear brother Lucky, we received a lot of suggestions to use Ese Tatupu Funeral services. From the first phone call to my brother’s burial, Luana & her team have been very helpful & showed a lot of compassion towards our family but mostly Lucky. They had made things so much easier for our family during such a vulnerable time & without complications they let our family make all the decisions. We were very happy with the way they communicated with us & Luana and the girls were very welcoming. We are so thankful and grateful for your services as we definitely felt like you treated us like family & showed us so much love and respect especially for my brother and his final days earthside. Faafetai lava.
