A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

A Prayer For Mama

My dear sweet heavenly father, I come to you today

with faith and hope; I ask, send an angel Mama’s way.

I know her time is near and soon you’ll take her home

to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam.

It’s hard to watch her suffer and slowly fade away.

Help me, God, to understand; give me strength, I pray.

She means so much to all of us; forgive me for my fears.

Life will never be the same without her presence here.

My mother is my angel; she taught me how to love

and told me about you, Lord, and heaven up above.

When she crosses over and steps into the light,

tell her that I love her and when the time is right,

meet me at the pearly gates where everything’s brand new.

We’ll walk across God’s meadow lands where skies are always blue.

Somewhere beyond the sunset every now and then,

I pray she watches over me until we meet again.

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.
