Goodbye Brother

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Goodbye Brother

Heaven has called upon you today,

leaving so many words left to say.

But now it’s too late, for your time has come.

Words unspoken – I am sure everybody has some.

Regrets and wishes are probably there too,

but lasting forever are memories of you.

I was there when you needed a place to stay,

just like you would be there for me night or day.

There have been many times that we disagreed,

but we were there for each other in time of need.

Now it’s time for me to say goodbye,

until we meet again in heaven to fly.

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.
