Birthday Wishes To My Son In Heaven

If I could have one wish in life,

That wish would have to be

That God would take away my pain

And send you back to me.

Your birthday’s here today, my son,

And I just wanted you to know

How much I deeply love you

And that I miss you so.

On days like this we should celebrate,

But for me that now proves hard,

For unlike other mothers, I cannot send

A simple birthday card.

No kisses can I give you

Or birthday gifts to buy.

Only flowers I now can give you,

Which I place down where you lie.

Two other things I send you

Are my thoughts and all my love,

So hold them close and keep them safe

In Heaven up above.

And please wait for me, my darling

Until my days are through,

And then I’ll come and spend all time

In Heaven just with you.

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.
