Funerals

We’re here to help you through one of life’s most difficult times.

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

A poem, which you may find helpful.

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 – )
