About the Book:

 

The Beginning of the way to Remember.

 

This is a guideline of thoughtful and uplifting ways for your loved ones Funeral.

 

We have applied with our own experiences of loosing our loved ones, the strength that is needed, to comfort those that are left behind, and the unity of loving families coming together through faith, and beliefs in making their funeral one with honour, strength and inspiration.

 

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a distressing time for family and friends. At some point in our life all of us will suffer the death of someone we love, and coming to terms with our grief can be a long process. Initially it is about the feelings and what the right things are to do and what to say, mainly it is about learning to grieve and coming to terms with your loss.

 

Most people who have not dealt with a death before are over whelmed at the task ahead within the next few hours and days with making the arrangements for your loved ones final journey. This book is a guide to help you through the process and give you ideas. There are certain steps for planning a funeral and many people do not realise there are more options open to them. Some may feel it is not right to question or want something that is different or out of the norm. In our experiences we would like for people to know that making the final arrangements even though it is daunting can be personalised. Your final tribute to your loved ones should be a celebration of their life and represent the things they held most dear.

Life is but a Stopping Place

 

Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what's to be,

A resting place along the road,

to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way,

We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay...

Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know.

For some the journey's quicker,

For some the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends, We'll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord
