My FFIL passed away last night and h2b wants to say a speech/poem at the funeral mass. Has anyone got any ideas on what way to word it.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Sorry for your loss
I am so sorry to hear that Rover 75.
My Father-in-law passed away 3 years ago. He had Cancer. My brother-in-law read this out after Holy Communion.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I hear Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
Too laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savoured much,
Good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hears and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
i am so sorry to hear about your loss.
its so sad to hear that.
my FFIL passed away suddenly 2 weeks ago . my thoughts are with you and your families
Thanks to ye all for your best wishes.
