Dear Moe

Thank you so much for your service and assistance with our order for our late father’s headstone.

We’re very pleased with the service provided by Aro memorials.


Despite our living in the US and being very distant from your office, you made it easy to communicate and allowed easiness and efficiency with our headstone order plus installation.

We appreciate your services and have referred our aunty to you as she is shopping for a headstone for a loved one.

We are excited to see the headstone in real life once we arrive in New Zealand next week.


Thank you and wishing you a blessed holiday season and prosperous New Year.


Sincerely , Lien Nau and family

Hi Colette,

Its such a beautiful one Colette, and I cannot thank you enough for the excellent work.
I will spread the news to the Tongans intending to import headstones from New Zealand. 

Receiving the headstone had made me shed tears of joy for the beauty of stone
and also brings back memories of my late husband.
Will send photos of the unveiling

Best Regards, Teisa

Good morning Colette,

Thank you so much Helen.

Our headstone really does look lovely and I will be keen to get over soon to see it in person.

My sincere thanks to you for organising this for my family. You have been wonderful with keeping me fully informed throughout the process, which has been extremely helpful and reassuring particularly considering I am overseas, therefore making it that much more challenging in making decisions. Your service has been exemplary and your patience and consideration has been sincerely appreciated. Thank you again.

With kind regards,

Hi Colette, 

Just wanted to say that my brother and i are really happy with the headstone. When i viewed the headstone on Wednesday  the quality of workmanship and the colors and style just all came together. 

Also, thank you so much for making our mother's picture stand out in the headstone and for dealing so patiently with our changes and requests. 

Regards Rocky Ralifo

for working with us in such a helpful and understanding manner. We are really pleased
with the beautiful headstone. Please find attached a photo of our we gathering

of grandchildren.

Many thanks on behalf of the Wilson family

Hi Moe,

Thank you so much to you and the rest of Aro Memorial team for the great service we received. The day I came in to inquire about the plaque - it was after searching for most of the day for someone to do the plaque for us and no-one could do it. So you were my last hope and you came through so brilliantly.

For that my family and I are most grateful. I most appreciative for how quickly you completed the job
and the clear communication you provide me through out the process. The plaque is beautiful
and very cost effective and better value that the quotes I had received earlier in the day. 
As you would
know I collected our completed plaque on Saturday.

Once again, thanks so much for your great service. Wishing you and your team at Aro Memorial
many blessings for Christmas and New Year.

warm regards


Hi Moe,

Thank you so much for your prompt email, I just received the information I asked for.

Precisely, Moe, Eric and the Aro Memorial Team, we also thank you a million for your good hard work, the headstones look so beautiful.

We look forward to show our families the beautiful headstones on 23 December 2017
for the unveiling.

Our pleasure/privilege working with you, and trust that we will meet again.

May the blessing of our Holy Saviour Jesus be with you all. With many thanks
and kind regards for your time and support.

Hi Helen,

Regards Rhonda King

Oh Helen….

I opened your email this morning and cried my eyes out.
Thank you so much Helen, not just for the end result (which is beautiful) but for personally helping
me to move through this process. At the start, I couldn’t face it, I was certain I couldn’t do it. I was torn between wanting to honour mum with a beautiful headstone but at the same time not wanting her to have a headstone because that would make what happened real - a concept I’ve struggled with since she left.
So I was stuck, and couldn’t see a way out. But then Tony introduced me to you and you somehow gently guided me through. God bless you Helen for caring so much, the world would be a better place if
we had more people like you in it.
Thank you again, Diane Gavet

Hi Colette,
We just want to thank you and your team, especially you - for your positive vibe, your
understanding with what we wanted and your patience to accommodate our many changes.
Our mum's headstone is truly magnificent, and her photo is beautiful. At the unveiling there were
a lot of tears of joy and awe when the stone was revealed.
No one recommended Aro to us, we saw a few headstones made by Aro at various cemeteries
which we liked and as soon as we walked through your doors we felt welcomed, a decision
we would not regret.
One of our 'neighbours' at the cemetery asked us who did our stone and we said 'Aro Memorials'
and she was so happy because she said you were doing her husband's stone as well,
I reassured her that she was in good hands.
Thank you and your team for an amazing job, may the Good Lord bless you all.
Warm regards, Fifita family

Hi Helen
Oh my the headstone is beautiful! My husband is very very happy with the end result. We cannot
thank you enough for all you did to get this done for us.
The to and fro and the extensive email trail!
All we can say is thank you Jesus for blessing us with having you Helen at that end and for his guidance.
Now for it to get here in Rarotonga and the unveiling to take place! I will forward your email to all
our family who contributed, am sure they all will be chuffed! God Bless you Helen and your team.
We really appreciate all your hard work.
Love Marj for all our family

Oh Helen the plaque is perfect!

Exactly how I wanted. Family approve and are so happy.
Thank you again for being so helpful, so understanding and caring.
You are a beautiful soul an
d Thank you ever so much

Hi! Helen
Thank you for the pictures, it's beautiful.
After looking at it, the grey marble pillars look quite stunning. It gives the headstone character & it doesn't
look like everyone else's hehe!! We love the surname at the back & where it is positioned on the headstone.
Thank you so much for your time, the work you put in to making sure everything was perfect.
Especially organizing things from Australia and not having to be in NZ.
It has been a great stress free experience. Highly recommend Aro memorials to anyone who has to organize 
a loved ones headstone form overseas.
Helen you have been prompt with every email request or query we had. And we are very few grateful for
for everything you have done for us.
My husband being the sole survivor of his family. It has been an absolute pleasure to know we have done our
very best to give our parents a beautiful headstone. So that our children & future generations can always go to
NZ and know they can visit & see their grandparents, great grandparents at Waikumete.

It's been a very long time since we have been communicating about this

By the way, this is just to convey our family's sincere appreciation for the job well done
in making sure our order get her in time as expected.
We are appreciatively proud of the tremendous skills of artwork being displayed
in this piece of work.
The headstone is just so fantastic for which we were so really thankful.
Once again, thank you  and looking forward to working closer with you in the future.
Till then, have a great evening and take care
Best regards

Dear Belinda and Eric, 

My apologies for not sending this earlier. 
I have only praise for your great service when dealing with my parent's Headstone. Just brilliant.  I am so happy I  chose the professionals. 
 You made my family very proud and they still can't get over how beautiful it is.  Simple but elegant and not messy. I'd say ..there is no comparison from what I've seen of what's being made in Samoa.
 Thank you very much and ill recommend you to whoever that wants to talk headstone ideas with me.
Sincerely Foa Nelson

Colette and Staff at Aro Memorials,

My family and I are extremely happy with Aro Memorials Ltd and would not hesitate
to use them again or recommend them to family or friends.
Our experience has been an extremely positive one right from beginning to end.
We rate their workmanship highly and vouch for their ability to meet
their customers’ requirements.

In particular, I want to acknowledge Colette Smuts who is extremely
professional and supportive; responding promptly to our queries by email/phone,
providing us with design drafts according to our stipulations and making
modifications as requested.
This was a stressful time for me and my siblings because we were being reminded
of our great loss and so your patience and caring manner was
much appreciated.  Aro Memorials Ltd was the only monumental mason who was
not fazed by the deadline of 2 months we gave them and they offered the
most value for money.

Our mother’s headstone is unique, dignified and elegant just like she was and we feel that
it honours her greatly.On behalf of my family,
I wish you, Colette, and Aro Memorials Ltd all the best for the future.

Leaupepe Taimaaiono Liz Tupua Talaepa

Eric & Staff,

Aro Memorials was recommended to us from a friend, who said they did a fantastic job and
were very reasonably priced - and she was absolutely right.
Our father's headstone was created better that we imagined, and the staff couldn't
have been friendlier and more accommodating if they tried. They exceeded any expectations
we might have had, and we highly recommend them to anyone.
Thank you so much for making a difficult time that much easier.

Mel Ulu


As a family we are more than happy for the great service, quality & fine craftsmanship on
our beloved mother's headstone..it was a wonderful day yesterday..
we will certainly be recommending your business to others.

Regards Colin & Satele Family

Hi Belinda and Eric,

That looks so amazing!!! I absolutely love it.  It is exactly how I wanted it to look.  You have
made this preparation an easy process for me in the limited short time that I have requested for.
Aro Memorials have been by far the cheapest option but with great quality and
awesome staff to deal with.
My family absolutely love it.  I will always recommend your service to anyone
I know who is looking to do a headstone.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart,


Hi Eric and Belinda

Just a little note to say thank you so much for my mum's beautiful headstone...
highly commended by our whole family that attended the unveiling.
Appreciate your service throughout the process

Warm Regards, Pua

Dear Belinda,

Once again thank you for the amazing service we received when purchasing my father's headstone -
rarely seen these days! Until the next family member is called to Jesus...hopefully not too soon -
we shall meet again:)
May God bless you both and your business abundantly.

Love & Prayers, The Galo Family

Hi Belinda,

the stone was delivered safely to the Solomons, and was installed over Christmas.
I have not seen any photos but have been told it looked very good and was appreciated by all.
 Many thanks for all your help last year. Please pass our thanks and
best wishes for the new year to your colleagues there at Aro

kind regards, Simon

Hi Colette

My whanau are so happy to say that we have complete satisfaction with our brothers headstone.
Thank you and Aro memorials for  being so patient and accommodating to our needs 
My sister and brother in-law safely, picked up the headstone 
They were happy to be given instructions on how to put up the stone and how to cement each  part onto the foundation. 

But what really surprised us all was the packet of cement that was given which
saves our whanau the time of figuring out what product we had to use to
piece the stones together.
Once again thank you for your beautiful work and also completing our
stone before the workshop Xmas closing date
We all wish you and your team a very safe and wonderful Xmas and a lovely New Year

 Arohanui, Otimi Whanau

Good Morning Colette

It was a BIG SUCCESS with our unveiling last weekend, the weather was perfect and
ALL the Family were very very HAPPY with the outcome of our Beloved Matiles Headstone.

 I wasnt at the unveiling, because I was here at home preparing everything for the family
to come back for a shared feast, but the feedback I got back from everyone was
nothing but High Praise for your beautiful workmanship,
they totally loved everything about Matiles Headstone, my husband and family did
exactly what I thought they would do and shed tears of joy with a touch of sadness.......
but all of the
Uncles and Aunties were very proud of what we had prepared for her with your help.....!! 
Thank you once again.....it was PERFECT.....!!

Much Blessings, Lorna & Faavae Sagisagi

Hullo Colette,

Thank you very much once again, was just a pleasure dealing with you during
this experience, you have made it so so easy, even though we are doing it
via email/phone but the experience has just gone through without any hassles at all,
I will strongly recommend your company and especially you personally
to my family and friends
who will be looking at doing any headstones in the near future, once again,
thanks a lot for everything.

Kind Regards, Rosa Moesa

Hi Colette,

 I can’t thank you enough for all your help. Although I was situated in Melbourne Australia,
you always made me feel at ease especially when I was stressing out, and never made
me feel that anything was impossible. Your constant communication
back and forth was immaculate!
From my first enquiry contact that I had with you, to the very last minute of the installation
of the headstone – everything ran smoothly.
Although the day of the unveiling was a little wet, this did not damper the comments
from everyone about how beautiful the headstone turned out.
It was alot bigger and better than we anticipated but it was perfect!

Colette I thank you from the bottom of my heart once again and would
not hesitate to highly recommend Aro Memorials.
Warm Regards, Cherie

Hi Colette,

Just wanted to give you a quick email on behalf of us all to express our gratitude
and a BIG thank you for all your help and for such a great job of our precious
mumsie's headstone. We are all very pleased with the finished product as it really
is a beautiful memorial for our mum ~ very classy!

Thanks and kindest regards, Sam, Brian, Tom

Dear Colette,

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank you for all the hard work you
put into creating our babies master piece. Your Professionalism,
experience and organisantional skills reflected, as we never thought it was possible
designing the
headstones via phone and email. Being situated in Melbourne, Australia,
we never thought it was possible.

The Unveiling went extremely well,
we had so many positive comments about the headstones with our help and
dedication this would not be possible.
Once again Thank you Colette and all the staff at Aro Memorials for creating
a unforgettable journey we will never forget.

Kind regards, William, Korina and Jodeci-Clay.

Dearest Colette,

A small token of our appreciation to say thank you for your patience throughout,
your friendly and professional service, going the extra mile and
for making the process so much easier for our family,
Kind Regards, 

the Nikora Family, from Otaki

Thanks so much Colette,

It is exactly what was needed, I am so very grateful for all of your help and as
soon as I can make it over there, I will come to thank you in person.

From Dianne

Morena Eric,

Heather and I would like to thank you, Belinda and the boys in the back for the beautiful job
done on Adam's headstone, it certainly looks terrific in the urupa. On the day of
the unveiling everything went well and everybody was impressed,
and especially when Adam's older brother explained the significance of the headstone,
the koru, the surfboard, the ta moko and the Kerala base.

We would especially like to thank you for your guidance and sound advice
and Belinda for her perseverance in adapting to our requests when
designing Adam's ta moko. A job well done.
Thank you, and may all your endeavours be fruitful.

Regards Joe & Heather Morunga


Now my in-laws unveiling is over, may I take this opportunity to thank you
and your team for the beautiful headstone you did for my mother in-law.
Special thank you to you especially for your help from the start to the end

It was truly a beautiful headstone
and the many families and friends who attended the unveiling was blown away
by the photo and the beauty of the stone.

we gave you in which I deeply apologise once again, it is a pleasure to do business with you,
and will continue to do so in future, once again

Dear Belinda and the team at Aro

I am just writing to say thank you to you and your team for the amazing work that was
done for our father's headstone. The positive comments about our
father's headstone that were made at the unveiling just demonstrates the professional,
affordable and efficient service that our family experienced with your company.

A special mention of Belinda and her amazing patience as we changed the
layout many times/requested different types of samples to view and
the many questions that were always answered!
Not to mention that this was all done via email between Brisbane and Auckland!

The result was a perfect headstone that will always have a special significance to our family!
Simple yet effective! So on behalf of the "Sao" family we once again
congratulate your team on a job extremely done well!

it was a load off my shoulder.

Dear Eric and Staff

Last Sunday was a special day for our small family and many friends and
in honour of our late father we had a small program and the unveiling was done
around 18.00 in the evening...
Everyone there was so impressed with the stone that I was fluster with many
questions to where I got the headstone...
Aro  Aro  Aro was my reply...
 Again thanks from the Lino family we thank you for everything....

Dear Eric & Belinda,

I just wanted to say Thank You so much for your professional help
with our dad's headstone. You had his headstone ready within 3 days for
our travel back home to the Cooks with our dad's ashes.

Our dad's funeral
occurred a day later and we also unveiled his headstone on the day of burial.
The unveiling of the headstone is rarely seen as part
of the funeral ceremony.

I believe this is a first for Rarotonga, and those who attended the funeral were
amazed at just how fast we were able to have a headstone in less than 5 days.
This is what I call "Quality Service"!

Our heartfelt Thanks to you and your team.
