Welcome to my website. You are here because you have typed in Funeral Poems in a search engine.
Some time ago I found myself in exactly the same position that you are in today. Following the sad passing of my Dear Mother, I did exactly what you have done and searched for Funeral Poems.
The results appeared and I found that all of the top ranking websites within the search offered up lots of funeral poems completely free of charge.
Great I thought this is too easy. However, not being the type of person that jumps in straight away I took a moment to reflect.
The question that really bothered me was the question. “Why are all of these sites offering me free funeral poems?”
So, I decided to look for the answer, to satisfy my inquiring mind. The answer was so blatant to me. It is because they are used by 90% of the population of the world.
Because of my age, I have arrived at a point in my life where a lot of my family and friends are passing away. I have, therefore, attended a lot of funerals.
And you wouldn’t believe the times I have heard the same old funeral poems. I just feel like shaking my head and saying is that the best you can do?
I know how long that poem took you to find. Didn’t you want something better?
With regard to the passing of my Mother, I wanted to say some words that exactly reflected the wonderful relationship we had. I needed a funeral poem that was different from the norm.
I wanted to impress the audience and hope that the words I spoke would stay in their memory forever.
Being the type of person that never gives up I continued my search and tucked away down the list of websites I clicked on something that caught my eye.
When I landed on the website it claimed to have over 250 funeral poems, readings, verses and quotations. It was one of those moments. Can this really be real? So I continued reading.
It was truly wonderful. It contained exactly what I was looking for. But it didn’t stop there. It gave valuable insights on how to write a eulogy and also some words to allow people to cope with the grief of the loss of a loved one.
Let us be perfectly clear. This ebook was not free. Fair enough I thought. After all, there is no free lunch. The actual cost was in my opinion completely fair. And the advantage was it was available in an instant download.
What happened next.
After my mothers, funeral and I had delivered a perfect eulogy. And here is a little tip. I started off my funeral speech with a funeral poem. Used another in the middle and finished up with a third at the end.
I received lots of comments from the audience and of course lots of pats on the back. My words had truly met my main objective.
The dust settled and one day in a moment of reflection I asked myself this. “Why don’t you help other people to do exactly what I had done?”
Surely there were other people like me that wanted to say some extra special word to say at a funeral. I did some more research and it revealed just that. Other people wanted to express some memorable words in the form of Funeral Poems.
As it happened I already had experience of building websites. All I had to do was make that exact same download available to put on a website of my own creation. And help people that were of the same mind frame as me.
It took some time but after some negotiations, I reached a point where I could allow others to use the ebook.
What happens now?
This site is growing in popularity as I have never experienced before. It is helping people through a difficult time and the comments received show that. We will become the worlds leading website relating to Funeral Poems, Eulogies and coping with grief.
We have done something new and different which I believe is what people want. I believe our passion for helping like-minded people shows.
Just Click Here to exactly see what the ebook contains. It won’t cost anything to have a look.
We will become the one-stop place for everything funeral related.
I recently bought my son in to help me with this website and the first task was to carry out an analysis of this sites figures and what were people looking for. Be it Funeral Poems, Eulogies or coping with grief.
The number 1 category.
It comes as no surprise that the top category of funeral poems is funeral poems for mum.
Our mother is, and will always be the most influential and important person in our life. She will teach us how to be a good person. Teach us right from wrong. Although our Dad is the head of the family. Is he really, compared to our mother?
We believe that it is vitally important to take some time to carefully choose the right words to say goodbye.
While writing I suddenly remembered this and I had better say it before I forget. I always say these simple words on funeral cards, messages and so on and it is this. “Until We Meet Again”.
Just four simple words but I believe it says it all. It gives hope that we will meet again one day. Just to have one last time together to reflect on the times we had together.
Funeral Poems For Dad. A bit obvious I know but don’t shoot the messenger.
I came from a generation where the father figure was a hard working man. A person who would stand up to injustice and show us how to become a man’s man.
I remember, when I was a child and did something wrong it only took one of his stern looks to put me back in line.
Some may say they were the good old days. However, every generation will say that.
Funeral Poems For Nan. Of course, Nan is known by lots of other terms, depending on where you are from. For example. Nanna, Gran, Granny, Grandma, Nanny. Have I forgotten anything?
Our Nan will always have a special place in our memories. She usually has the patience of a saint and is full of wisdom. And has probably forgotten more than we will ever know.
She is that person that spoils us rotten. Am I right?
So don’t let her down. Say something special when saying goodbye. You will feel proud.
Funeral Poems For A Brother Or Sister. Of course, our siblings will always be a part of our lives. They are the people we grew up with whether older or younger than us.
Other Categories of Funeral Poems.
The above covered the family. However, some people are looking for something completely different.
In popularity here are the terms that are being searched for.
For a much more detailed explanation of the categories, I have linked each one to a full-length article.
Organising the funeral.
Before I leave you I feel I must say a few important things to consider when organising a funeral.
It will always be a difficult time following the death of a loved one.
There is so much that has to be done when all you want is some time on your own and go through the grieving process.
It won’t go away. We managed to employ an experienced Funeral Director. They helped and guided my Brother and me through all the steps that had to be done.
There are some legal matters that you carry out firstly. For example, the Death Certificate, contacting your solicitor and if there is property employing an Estate Agent to arrange for the sale.
Informing family and friends of the sad passing. Getting the numbers of people who are likely to be attending the funeral and the subsequent wake. You will need a budget for food and drinks.
Once again be guided by the Funeral Director.
The most stressful part of all of this, strangely enough, was the sale of the property. It was an absolute nightmare. It took over 3 months going back and forward to the solicitor and filling out an endless amount of forms.
I don’t envy anybody. I think it is the legal profession making as much money as possible.
Just a couple of other things.
Make sure you have made out your own will. If not then it will just become so complicated.
Have in place a Power Of Attorney. Contrary to popular belief you are never too young to do this. God forbid that you get dementia it will be too late.
Thanks for coming here today and we sincerely hope that we have been of some help to you in this terrible time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
