Dear Sandy, I would like to thank you for the work, talks, friendship and laughs over the last 8 years. My last sit was very sad - I almost changed my mind but all things must come to an end. You're a lovely person & I hope that you have a great future. Thanks for being there when I needed it.
Dear Sandy, I know it's a little late but my family would still like to say thank you for the wonderful care and support you gave to our daughter, she is slowly progressing to a full recovery her short term memory is still affected. Again my grateful thanks,
Dear Sandy, How are U ? I hope you are keeping well. Thank you for your assistance with the twins they are still quite 'premie' and still often unwell. Please call whenever you are in Sydney.
Dear Sandy Faure, I was extremely impressed with the level of service and the quality of the applicant you provided. I also appreciated that you responded to our initial situation, on a Sunday and by the end of the day, you had sourced a solution. I would not hesitate to recommend Abracadabra in the future.
