A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Untitled

I am standing on the sea shore.
A Ship sails and spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
And starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty
And I stand watching her till at last
She fades on the horizon,
And someone at my side says,
“She is gone.”
Gone where?
Gone from my sight,
That is all. She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars
As she was when I saw her,
And just as able to bear her load of living freight
To its destination. The diminished size and total loss of sight
Is in me, not in her. And just at the moment
When someone at my side says, “She is gone,”
There are others who are watching her coming,
And other voices take up a glad shout,
“There she comes,”
And that is dying.

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.
