Jeff Woods & Nicky Lock

Hi Jeremy,
We have finally had the grass laid at the front of, “5 OTTER’S HOLT” and would like to thank you for all your help with the design and ordering. It looks so good and we are receiving lots of positive feedback. Our only regret, not being able to visualize the size of the grassed area before we ordered, is that we could have had a larger stone.
Once again many thanks for all your help.

From two very satisfied customers.
Jeff Woods & Nicky Lock.

The Parrott Family

Hi Jeremy,
Just wanted to let you know that the stone arrived today safe and sound and it is beautiful. It is even better than we had hoped and it will be taking pride of place in our garden. The only sad part is that the person who would have appreciated the skill and craftsmanship the most is not here to see it but it stands as a fitting tribute to a special person. Thanks again for all your patience and for creating something so beautiful that we will always treasure.

Kind regards
The Parrott family.

This is just to say a huge thank you for the time spent creating the stone memorial to our son Adrian who died aged 27.

If anyone is looking to create a memorial stone for a loved one, I cannot recommend this firm highly enough. I promise you – you will not be disappointed. So, thank you Jeremy for making what could have been a daunting task a huge pleasure. The stone you made for us will go with us for the rest of our lives.
With our thanks and very best wishes

I had wanted to contact you before to say a big thank you for the slate sign that you dispatched before Christmas but things have run away with me.

The sign is fantastic and my wife was thrilled. I’ve got to say that the quality and “design” of the slate way exceeded my expectations. It’s a very fitting aesthetic piece to front the gates to our house. Your service was exceptional and I can’t thank you enough for turning it around so quickly before Christmas. It was with slight trepidation that I ordered the piece (Internet phobia !) but I am delighted with the sign and with your help in choosing the right slate.
Thanks very much
Tim.

Many thanks for the slates-they are fantastic! Will send some photos later in the year, once the garden is looking less winter like! Thank you..

Hi Jeremy,
Just to let you know that the plaque arrived today, well packed and safe. We’re really pleased with it – it’s a lovely piece of slate and beautifully finished, and should finish our build off perfectly. Many thanks. And the Sticks-Like-Sh*t arrives tomorrow..
Best Wishes
Nigel.

Hi Jeremy,
We received Wellington’s memorial yesterday (and did get an e-mail eventually) and I just wanted to drop you a note to say how utterly beautiful it is.

It is really stunning and such great value for money when you compare it to other memorials available. Although it made me sob my heart out putting the stone in its resting place, it is so beautiful that I know I will smile looking at it when remembering Welly.

Thank you so very much
Rachel

Dear Jeremy,
Just to let you know the memorial stone for our beloved cat Paddy arrived as promised yesterday. We are absolutely delighted with it and was moved to tears to see his name, our sentiments and the paw marks engraved so beautifully on the slate.

It will take pride of place under the oak tree where Paddy is buried and will be a forever reminder of how much he was loved and is still so very much missed.

I had no doubt you would come through for us again, this being our 4th pet memorial from Rustic Stone so all our precious cats now have fitting tributes where they are resting peacefully.

With best wishes
Lorraine

Dear Jeremy,
I’ve just arrived home from my short break in the Lake District to find your slate waiting for me. Jeff hadn’t opened it because he was respectfully waiting for my return, bless him. How about that for respect?

Well, dear friend and kindred spirit, we opened it together, and the pair of us simply dissolved into tears the moment your work came into view. It is simply beyond beautiful and it’s everything I was hoping to give to Jeff by way of a thank you and to say “I understand” what this place in the country is to him. We recently lost Jeff’s Mum, his best friend and his beloved dog, Holly, closely followed by 13 more losses of our nearest and dearest family, so the whole ethos of our new Lake-land home is about finding him (and me too) a quiet, serene place where he/we can recover. Your stone says everything… simply everything. Most especially, it says, please understand. Please give us some space. Please respect our need for peace and we’ll be with you as soon as we can. How did you manage that, Jeremy, without me ever telling you in any detail? God bless you. You’ve done something here that only an artist’s heart could ever achieve. You listened to the quiet still voice inside; the whisper in your heart and acted upon it.

I ran upstairs to write to you but now I’m finding myself utterly stuck for words and that’s saying something because writing is my craft and trade.

Jeremy, I simply don’t know what to say to you by way of thanks. You did indeed put your heart and soul into what you have created for us here and I feel so glad I trusted your artistry and let you loose to follow your heart because, boy, did you! When I asked you to work from your heart, I could not possibly have expected that you would get it so right, yet instinctively I knew I could trust you without doubt. This wasn’t an “ordinary” job and I knew from your examples on the website that you were no “ordinary” artist. I just didn’t want to burden you with the ins and outs of it all. Yet somehow you just knew. Do I take it then that your soul was listening to mine? Yes. 100% yes!

Jeff wants you to know that somehow you’ve re-visited for him St. Ninian’s Cross and St. Aidan’s Cross – both of which have huge significance for him so I have to take it that his angels talked to my angels who in turn talked to your angels who talked directly to you, and somehow you’ve then got it completely right – beyond right. I don’t know quite how such things happen but I’ve long trusted that they do.

I’m so sorry that you have had to wait for this response because of my absence. Under different circumstances, you’d have been replied to immediately so please forgive the delay.

Paying you a small monetary sum I hope helps recognize the earth bound side of things. But please know that there is no amount of money, no expression of thanks and no email that could ever express to you what your beautiful, divine work of art has meant in this house today and for a very long time in the future.

Can I just tell you that your stone has been washed with our tears but they were tears of joy because if there’s one thing we are it’s artists and the first thing we ever do is recognize other artists along the way.

Please reply to this email just so I know that you’ve received it and that you feel the warmth of our love, thanks, joy and peacefulness in what you have created for us here.

Bless you, friend and kindred spirit,. Never, ever doubt that you are truly one of the few rare artists who not only works from his soul but also hears the soul of his clients and reaches out in perfect understanding to create something of immeasurable value that will last indefinitely.

Not many can say they have achieved that very rare and special gift, much as many of us may try. I do so hope I have found sufficient words to express it to you but if you’re in any doubt, please may I just say I love you for what you have done for us and please don’t ever question it. Funny isn’t it, that we’ve never met yet you’ve achieved something here that few souls ever achieve in a lifetime of knowing each other? You’ve spoken soul to soul, heart to heart in way the finest poet could ever could dream of doing.

So let’s just call it “poetry in stone”, shall we? How does that feel to you?

With love and heartfelt, even tearful gratitude. Please reply because I so want to know that you ‘get it’ and understand just how much this means to us.

Rustic Stone have just completed a stone for my mother’s grave and I would just like to comment on how easy it was to use their website and how smoothly the whole process was. The stone looks lovely and is finished to a high degree.

David

We lost our faithful, loving corgi, Teddy, in February 2008. That was easily the worst day of our lives. The pain was intensely raw for weeks after. Once we had his ashes returned to us, we wanted a place in our garden for them, and a fitting memorial stone for our beloved dog.

We found Jeremy’s website, rusticstone.net, and liked what we saw. We emailed and telephoned Jeremy: we found him charming, sympathetic and infinitely patient. We ordered a stone, Jeremy sent us a photo, we liked it, confirmed our order and awaited delivery. The parcel arrived, beautifully wrapped, but to our concern the plaque wasn’t quite right. It was nobody’s fault, but we agonised for days – should we contact Jeremy? In the end, we did. Again he was nothing but charming, sympathetic and infinitely patient. We talked and agreed a solution.

A second stone duly arrived. And it is perfect! I’m writing this in November 2009. We still haven’t been able to put Teddy’s ashes to rest, but his memorial stone is beautiful and will serve its purpose magnificently when the time comes. I’m guessing Jeremy spends much of his time talking to emotionally-charged clients who have suffered deep distress. Be assured – with Jeremy of rusticstone.net, you are in safe hands.

Just a line to say thank you very much for the lovely sign which arrived safely yesterday and is now in place on our house. It is a stunning piece of craftsmanship, very distinctive and individual and a really pleasing complement to our home. I attach a couple of photos.

Dear Jeremy and team,
Thank you so much for the beautiful stone for ‘Daisy’s Garden’ which you made for us in memory of our beautiful Granddaughter. It is placed in a special part of our garden dedicated to her and, as her Mom and Dad live in America, this is our only way to pay tribute to her. We are thrilled with it and I’m so glad that I found your website.

Regards
Sue.

Carolyn and Irving Cobden

Hi – sorry for the delay – I have been meaning to leave this message for you since we took delivery of the beautiful headstone dedicated to our much loved dog, Jaffa. Just wanted to say how delighted we were at the workmanship and skill that had gone into making the beautiful stone that we received. It was exactly how I imagined having a headstone for my dearly missed pet. It stands in pride of place in a lovely corner of our garden where “she can see the swallows” in the summer who were her great playmates.
Thank you once again for providing us with a lovely, long lasting reminder of our dear dog.
Carolyn and Irving Cobden, Northumberland

Jerry

A quick note to let you know that the slate name-plate arrived and is already in place (see photo attached).

I am most grateful to you for all aspects of the service that you have given: we are thrilled with the end-product and impressed by the speed with which the package arrived, even to these remote parts! I will have no hesitation in recommending Rustic Stone to anyone who’s looking for the sort of thing you do – everything about the ordering on line was really straightforward and helpful, your own prompt and personal communication was much appreciated, and your generosity in the face of the slight mix-up (which was probably as much my doing as anyone’s!) was a welcome change from the sort of service all too often encountered today: and, as I’ve said before, I’m most grateful to you for ensuring that the slate was ready and arrived within the relatively short-time scale which I’d requested.

You have one (another!) very satisfied and extremely grateful customer!
Warm regards as ever
Jerry.

Hi Jeremy
Thank you so much for our cat memorial stone. Dibbley was our much loved family cat for 15 years so we wanted to mark her being a part of our lives with something special – & this certainly is. We have placed the stone close to where she is buried & next to a little ‘pussy willow’ tree that we have planted in her honor.
Regards
Liz Davies.

Marguerite Bassett

Our sign has been much admired and we think it has just the right feel for our home – a friendly font, simple and clear. The slate was much thicker than we expected, and the engraving was deep, so this is very much a quality product made with care. We chose ‘invisible’ fixings which proved easy and have added to the neatness of the sign. Many thanks for exceeding our expectations and we will have no hesitation in recommending you.
Regards
Marguerite.

Hi Jeremy,

Superb ! Brilliant ! Impressive !

Very many thanks for the well packed, speedy delivery of this house sign for our wee ‘But n Ben’ at Glenelg on the West Coast of Scotland. Exactly what I had hoped for… chunky and rustic but clearly skilfully made !
Incredibly heavy too… I love it !

A belated thank you for the wonderful memorial stone commemorating our much missed cat Cleo. It is sitting at the bottom of the garden, a place that she loved dearly, and the family love it. When it arrived we joked that it rather summed up our plush puss – big, black and heavy!

Many thanks again!
Robin.

Julie Healy

Dear Jeremy,
I arrived back from holiday to find the memorial stone which I had ordered, so that I could mark my Grandparents Grave. I have been on this project for over a year finding the grave and then getting copies of the death certificates. A great thank you for all your help and assistance. The plaque has now marked the grave for all to see and cherish.

Thank you again Julie.

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for the lovely job you did at such short notice to provide the house sign for my wife’s Mum. It is fantastic and worth every penny to see how happy she is now with her new house sign.

Your communication with the whole process was excellent and the sign arrived well packaged exactly on the day you said it would. Hopefully when my wife and I retire we will be looking for you to provide a house sign for us too.

Many thanks
Kim.

We have sadly lost two of our beloved dogs over the past eighteen months. On both occasions Jeremy at Rustic Stone was extremely helpful, and provided beautiful memorial stones for our boys’ resting place. His work is exemplary, absolutely what we had hoped for, and on truly magnificent quality slate. The stones arrived promptly and had obviously been created and packaged with care. I cannot recommend his work highly enough. Marcus James, former Dad to Eric and little Theodore.

Hi there

The plaque arrived this morning and I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. I didn’t expect anything so ‘substantial’ given the price. My daughter, whose cat it commemorates, is going to be so thrilled when she sees it … after she’s burst into tears that is!

Thank you

THANK YOU so much for my wonderful 1st House name plaque. I was extremely impressed with the website and the ‘Design & See’ before I placed my order. As promised, first thing the next morning I recieved an email with the actual layout. I was even more delighted when it arrived within 2 weeks of placing the order. I am having a house warming / naming day at the end of the month, so I haven’t put it up yet (it’s going to be a suprise for my family). I will post a picture after the 30th.

Many Many Thanks for the superb service you have provided and the quality of the finished product.

Over the last 8 years we have had three house signs made, all in the same special font, for different locations on our house/drive. The service has always been first class. The very first sign ordered still looks as good as when it was delivered. Have no doubts at all in giving Rustic Stone 110% recommendation.

Martin Smith

Good Morning Jeremy,

Just a short message to sincerely thank you, as the Memorial Plaque arrived here safely yesterday. It is just as I imagined, perfect, and I immediately took it to the churchyard and laid it appropriately into the ground. The relatives visiting on Thursday (tomorrow) will, I’m sure, be absolutely delighted to see the memorial plaque so nicely installed.

I am truly most grateful for all you have done to assist me in getting this overdue task completed and you can rest assured I will recommend you and your company as the very first contact for any similar requirements from my family, friends and neighbours etc.

With kindest best wishes,
Martin Smith.

Dear Jeremy,
Just to say how very pleased I was with the stone. It is lovely. It did make me cry though as it is for the garden I have created for my son, who died from cancer last year, aged 29.
Thank you so much again, it means such a lot.
best wishes,
Anne

Claire Hughes

Dear Jeremy

It does’t seem like a year since I ordered the memorial plaque from you in memory of our beautiful staffie, who we lost last July. Well, we finally got around to having the flower bed at the bottom of the garden sorted out a few weeks ago’ and now the stone takes pride of place in Barty’s favorite spot. I must say that I shed more than a few tears when I placed it. Thank you so much.

We also had the house number plaque put up at the same time and again that looks absolutely wonderful – it looks so individual, and much more classier than the mass market shop bought one we had originally.
