Tree of Rememberance

Please feel free to place the names of your loved ones on the Tree of Remembrance in the Parish Church during the month of November, this special month of prayer for our faithful departed.

May They Rest in Peace.

I am free

Don’t grieve for me,

for now I’m free,

I’m following paths God made for me

I took his hand

I heard him call

Then turned, and bid farewell to all

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to sing, to play

Tasks left undone must stay that way

I found my peace… at close of play

And if my parting left a void

Then fill it with remembered

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened… deep with sorrow

I wish you 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 too brief

Don’t lengthen it now with grief

Lift up your hearts and share with me,

God wants me now… He set me free.
