My Aunt

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

My Aunt

I thought I saw her face today

In the sparkle of the morning sun.

And then I heard the angel say,

“Her work on earth is done.”

I thought I heard her voice today

Then laugh her hearty laugh.

And then I heard the angel say,

“There’s peace, little one, at last.”

I thought I felt her touch today

In the breeze that rustled by.

And then I heard the angel say,

“The spirit never dies.”

I thought that she had left me

For the stars so far above.

And then I heard the angel say,

“She left you with her love.”

I thought that I would miss her

And never find my way.

And then I heard the angel say,

“She’s with you every 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.
