A Daughter’s Promise

Every time I smile,

Every time I sigh,

I think of your face,

And a tear escapes my eye.

You were my world,

My inspiration and my heart,

But when you left me,

I thought I would fall apart.

You were my best friend,

My one true confidant,

And that’s not all you were.

You were also my mom.

I didn’t want to live without you,

But you would have wanted me to,

And if there’s anyone I want to make happy,

That anyone is you.

I would have given anything to have you back,

But I know now that it was meant to be,

For you are still watching from up there,

And I know you’re watching me.

I’ll make you proud, Mom.

I’m going to fulfill your wish.

You’re going to see me and smile.

That’s a daughter’s promise.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
