A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Memories

My memories are what I have left,

and a lesson I will not forget.

The time has come when time is no more

and all that’s left was once before.

The memories so dear and true,

those memories of me and you.

Although we fell and stumbled at times,

all those hills were necessary climbs.

All the times when your heart shined through

are the greatest memories I have of you.

I will always remember you, brother of mine.

In my heart I will keep you, so I will be fine.

I will go forward with my head up high.

It might be hard, I cannot lie.

But in my heart you will be,

moving forward, you with me.

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.
