A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

She Is Gone (He Is Gone)

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has livedYou can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has leftYour heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you sharedYou can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterdayYou can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live onYou can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

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.
