Half Of My Heart Is Gone

Son, I wish I could wake up and see you standing there.

Then I would know that it was just a nightmare.

Son, I remember when you were small and how you would hold my hand,

and as you grew older you became my best friend.

Son, I have 29 years of memories that I will treasure and keep safe in my heart.

We share a bond that time and distance can never break apart.

Son, oh how my heart aches so.

I would love to have you back and never let you go.

Son, where there was happiness,

now there is sadness.

Son, how I long to hear your voice and see your beautiful smile

and have you back for just a little while.

Son, until that day I see you again,

I will look to the sky and search among the stars for my son and best friend.

Love,

Mom

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.
