The Fishing Hole in the Sky funeral reading

This entry is part 24 of 51 in the series Funeral Readings

Here’s the next in my series of funeral readings you might like to consider for your loved one’s funeral or memorial ceremony. Some are sad, some are uplifting, some are comforting; there’s something for everyone here.

Readings are absolutely not a compulsory part of a funeral or memorial ceremony. Sometimes family members or friends desperately want to speak at their loved one’s funeral, but they haven’t got the wherewithal to write something themselves. Readings are a perfect stand-in: your emotions and feelings right there on the page ready for you to contribute.

Remember readings can be adapted – if your favourite reading is written for him, you can change it to her! If it’s written for Mum, you can change it to Dad or Grandma or Grandpa, whatever fits for you. Take out lines that don’t fit your circumstances. I just make sure to introduce such a reading as an adaptation.

The Fishing Hole in the Sky, by Esther Swanborough

When I come to the end of the horizon
And enter the other shore
Remember me with fondness.
Cry for me no more.

I have found my final resting place
That special spot to fish
Remember the times that we shared
You too, I will miss.

This is the journey I must take,
And I must go alone.
Know that my heart is with you,
As I take this journey home.

To that final fishing hole
For fishermen like me
To tell the biggest fishing tales
About the one that got away.

Remember me with fondness
This is not goodbye
It is “Till we meet again”.
At the fishing hole in the sky.
