Missing You, Nan

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Missing You, Nan

The years will always roll on by

and time will always pass,

but every memory I have of you

will definitely always last.

I like to smile when I think of you.

I try not to be sad.

It’s pretty easy to do

with all the good times that we’ve had.

But sometimes I can’t help it,

and memories leak out of my eyes,

and I quickly try to brush them away.

I know you wouldn’t want me to cry.

I don’t know how it’s possible,

but I love you more now than I did then,

and I really cannot wait until

the day that I see you again.

Because, Nan, I know I would take hold of you

and never ever let you go.

Every day that passes by

I miss you more and more.

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.
