Don’t Cry For Me Today

Don’t cry for me today,

I wouldn’t want it this way.

Be strong and smile,

for you will see me in a while.

I know you miss me,

but now in Heaven I will be.

Do not keep your sad face.

I am in a much better place.

Do not let your tears fall,

for I cannot wipe them all.

Yes, my life wasn’t long,

But I’m begging you to be strong.

Live every moment as if it were your last.

I won’t forget any memories that have passed.

Cherish life and love

as I watch you from above.

As I remember all of the good things,

I come to see I have gotten my wings.

It is time to go and fly.

As your guardian angel I will try.

Don’t cry for me today.

I’m on my way.

Soaring through the sky,

I watch all of you telling me goodbye.

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.
