A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Big Brother Gone

Day by day, I think of you.

How can all of this be true?

I can’t believe you’re really gone;

I still can’t accept it,

Even after so long.

Just the thought of you makes me cry.

I never even got the chance to say goodbye.

Every picture, every letter…

I don’t know if it will ever get better.

I always smell your familiar scent.

It makes me think of all of the times we’ve spent.

I know we didn’t always get along,

And every time we talked, it would always go wrong.

So many things I never got to say.

I never imagined you’d ever be so far away.

You were my brother,

And I loved you like no other..

In my heart you’ll always be;

You’ll be my guide and help me see.

I’ll never forget your soothing voice.

I would take your place if I had a choice.

But now I have to let you rest,

Although without you my world’s a mess.

I miss you with all of my heart.

I wish we never had to part.

I know you’re always by my side,

So now I guess this is my goodbye…

Rest in Peace Manuel- Christina

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.
