Funeral Poems & Readings

Dear Friend

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

Dear Friend

Today is the day you will be laid to rest,

But you know what they say,

God only takes the best.

Everything happens for a reason,

Even if we may not agree.

Just promise to look after us,

And if you can,

Save a spot up there for me.

The thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes,

And even more so,

Because all of this was such a surprise.

But we should never question what God has planned,

Sometimes it’s not meant for us to understand.

So as we sit here and mourn the loss of a beloved friend,

We have to keep telling ourselves that we will 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.
