In the Month of November we remember especially Loved Ones who have died between November 2009 and October 2010
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:5
By dying You opened the gates of life for those who believe in You; do not let Your brother/sister be parted from You, but by Your glorious power give him/her light, joy, and peace in heaven where You live for ever and ever. Amen.

Love is stronger than death
even though it can't stop death from happening,
but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love
It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death. -
Politicians usually have much to say
No sign of them near here today
They hide away and out of danger
Much easier if the hero is a stranger
The hearse with its precious load
Moves slowly out onto the road
The floral tributes line the route
While comrades snap a smart salute
At the edge of a Wiltshire town
The cortege slows its pace right down
The streets are packed , many deep
Some throw flowers, most just weep.
The crowd have come to say farewell
The church rings a low death knell
Regimental standadrs are lowered down
As the hero passes through the town.
The cortege stops and silence reigns
The townsfolk feel the family's pain
The nation's flag lowered to half mast
Our brave hero is home at last.
