In Loving Memory funeral reading

By Published On: August 15, 2020Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 8 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. I just make sure to introduce such a reading as an adaptation.

In Loving Memory, author unknown

My heart has been left broken
Since the day you had to go
And the memories I treasure dearly
Are in the tears that still flow.

You’re in my thoughts every day
And that’s how it will always be
For you may be up in Heaven now
But you’ll always be with me.

If only I could have the chance
To see your face once more
Or to hear your voice one final time
Just like it was before.

The day that Heaven calls for me
Will be a relief from all this pain
I’ll run to you with open arms
And we will meet again.
