How Grateful I Would Be To Have Just One More Day

If I could have just one more day and

wishes did come true,

I’d spend every glorious moment

side by side with you.

Recalling all the years we shared

and memories we made,

how grateful I would be

to have just one more day.

Where the tears I’ve shed are

not in vain and only fall in bliss.

So many things I’d let you know

about the days you’ve missed.

I wouldn’t have to make pretend

you never went away.

How grateful I would be to

have just one more day.

When that day came to a close

and the sun began to set,

a million times I’d let you know

I never will forget

the heart of gold you left behind

when you entered Heaven’s gate.

How grateful I would be to

have just one more day.

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.
