A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Time Is Meant To Heal

Although unheard, I thank you

For always being there.

Even when you were bedridden,

You always seemed to care.

You meant so much to all of us;

You were special and that’s no lie.

You brightened up the darkest day

And even the greyest sky.

Many tears I have seen and cried.

They have all poured out like rain.

I know that you are happy now

‘Cause you’re no longer in pain.

Four years on, I remember you

And what you used to say.

You made each of us smile

And live to the fullest each day.

They say in time it gets easier.

I believe this isn’t true

Because even after all this time,

I still don’t have a clue.

I was not ready to say goodbye.

Your disease just over took,

So on this day we remember you.

I take a second look.

Our friendship is forever.

Until death, did we part.

Although you’re away physically,

You’re always in my heart.

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.
