One of the most difficult things we do in life is to bury our loved ones.
Music at funerals offers the community a way of expressing convictions and feelings that words alone may fail to convey.

Memorial poems for Funeral services
(Click for Reflections)
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.
To the living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return,
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea--
As you look upon a flower and admire it's simplicity--
Remember me in your heart.
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.
To those I love and who love me
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
You have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now its time I travelled alone.
So grieve for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
Its only a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won’t be far away for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will hear.
Though you can’t see or touch me I’ll be near -
And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home”.
