Funerals

Furneals

We welcome family and friends as they come together to express their grief and give thanks for the life of a loved one. Please contact the clergy if you wish to discuss funeral arrangements.

 

You can shed tears that she is gone

Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back

Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her

Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone

Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You 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.

David Harkins (1959 - )
 

I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year,

"Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown."

And he replied, "Go out into the darkness

and put your hand into the hand of God

That shall be to you better than the light

And safer than a known way!"

So I went forth and finding the hand of God

Trod gladly into the light.
