When God Comforted Me

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

When God Comforted Me

From heaven he was delivered

As a baby unto you,

When God said to me softly

I’m trusting you to do

Everything that’s needed

To nurture and to love.

He’s your little angel

Sent from me above.

You see…spirits cannot be

Held, hugged, or kissed.

The body that was his vessel

Is what you’ll surely miss,

But his spirit that I shared with you

On that one special day,

That is what I promise

To never take away.

So he is back in heaven now

The earth was not his place.

He taught you all he could

About dignity and grace,

So as you grieve and weep

To see him once again,

I promise he’s waiting here

When you get to heaven.

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.
