To Ese and the team

Thank you very much for being a part of mum’s funeral. The family were extremely happy with the services you provided. We wanted to send mum off in style and you made that possible, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Your professionalism did not go unnoticed yet you still managed to show empathy and sincerity during our most challenging times. I also understand that you were extremely busy during this time, yet whenever I made contact with you and left a message your response time was on point which made us feel special. Please pass on my gratitude and appreciation to the rest of your team. I will certainly recommend your services to others. Take care, all the best for the future.

Love from the Papali’i, Fatialofa’s, Ualesi family

Ese , Hila & Team

My name is Kealey Liufolua. I'm writing on behalf of myself and my family. Words can't describe how amazing you all are. We could not thank you all enough for all the love & support both yourself Ese and the wonderful Hila showed towards my family through this hard time. This is the second time we have come to Ese for help. The first time was 31/12/12. The passing of our beloved mother Ese took care of everything, he was amazing hence why we didn't think twice about choosing any other funeral home this time round of the passing of our beloved father. As you could understand we were not in the right mind frame as we just lost our parents and were unsure of the next step but you Hila helped us through it all, you truly made sure we had nothing to stress about you took care of everything. Also to Luana we want to thank you for your patience and support on the funeral day. We could not thank you Ese and your team enough. So those who are unsure whether to use Ese Tatupu Funeral Directors look no further they are definitely the team to call. Thank you again guys so much.

Hi Ese and Team

My sincere apologies for taking so long to do this.  It's not like I have been able to gather enough or even the right words to express our gratitiude for what you guys did for my little brother Sam Hale's funeral but because this is long overdue I thought I'd better send this anyway and even tho it doesn't do justice to the service we received I hope and pray it's enough to attract another blessed family like ours was when you helped us.

As you have most likely experienced with others, we weren't in the right state of mind to be picking and choosing and planning anything but I need you guys to know just how perfectly you pulled everything together for us.  From our late night call regarding my brother's coffin colour, to your own personalized decorations on it, to the playlist you let him sleep to on the one night he stayed in your chapel, to Ese's consideration for our culture by wearing his mat while on duty, to your attention to detail, your time management and your sympathy on us during such a sad time. From the bottom of our hearts and with every ounce of our souls I humbly thank you all.  It's been 7 months and the whole thing still brings me to tears.  It's not the first time we've had to deal with a funeral home but it was for one of my immediate family so you can just imagine how perfect we needed things to be.  And you provided that and more.  As a family we most definitely recommend your services and you can be sure we will be contacting you again.  I pray many blessings upon your company and may it succeed and prosper for many more years to come.

What can I say about Ese Tatupu's service?  They did an awesome job.  What a great experience.  They helped us through the time when we mourn the loss of my husband Allan Filipaina.  My words is not enough to explain how great their service was.  From the time they picked my husband up, till the time for his final destination, they made it so easy for us and I can only say may God humbly bless them because they did a magnificent job.  They were like a part of the family.  I can only say how great they are and thank you, thank you very much.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me, my family and my late father Allan Filipaina.  No words will be enough to express my gratitude for what you have done.  You have involved our family in every step and I personally thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I am glad you offer your services and you work in the field of funeral services because I can see you genuinely care and acknowledge how sensitive a family is during this time. Much Alofa. Thank you again.
Marise Filipaina

I would recommend Ese Tatupu to direct future funerals.  The service was personalised to suit our needs and budget with great recommendation to make our fathers farewell a memorable day.
Thank you for an awesome day and the days leading up to the final day which words cannot express how grateful we are to have chosen to use their services.
