Autumn Leaves

A windy wet day for the ceremony of a popular man took place in Exeter Crematorium.  If you have never heard Eva Cassidy sing Autumn Leaves please do so now.  It is one of the most moving songs I have heard.  His daughter wrote to me:

ec4e4c8dbfd4f6d6a16c1181f9f4f37c I did just want to thank you myself for the most wonderful service you gave for my dear Dad.
There was not a dry eye amongst our friends and family, many of whom said it was one of the loveliest services they had been to. So thank you for making our words heartfelt and extra special and for the beautiful poems you included. It could not have been more perfect and exactly
 what we had wanted.  They chose this poem to remember their beloved husband and father.


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. 

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days. 

I’d like tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun 

Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done.
