Funerals

Sometimes – The “Footprints” Poem

Author Unknown

Sometimes on our journey through life
we meet people who leave footprints on our mind
-they challenge us to see things differently
and to question our personal reality.

Sometimes on our journey through life
we meet people who leave footprints on our heart
they create a safe place for us
to open our hearts to feel loved and special

Then sometimes on our journey through life
we meet people who leave footprints on our souls
-they share themselves with us so profoundly
that they touch the very essence of who we are
in that secret quiet place

We must remember that those we love are never truly gone, they live in treasured memories. They live in the hearts of those whose lives they have touched and shared along the way. The event of death has a way of uniting us in a way that perhaps no other human experience does, it reminds us of the fragility of life.

A funeral service is a celebration of your loved one’s life. How they have touched your life and what imprints they have left on this earth. Although this is a sad occasion, together we can honour your loved one as the funeral service is an opportunity to share all your precious memories, both happy and sad.

To be able to share the sacred time with family in their grief, preparing a funeral service is precious to me. I feel privileged that my career path has lead me to be able to honour someone’s life for their family in a final farewell.
