We recently came across this poem by Tanya Lord, it seems to answer a question that is often posed to funeral directors. 

I am so often asked
"Tell me, what can I do?"
So today I will share
some ideas with you.

Missing for a lifetime
Is so hard to explain
Take time to listen
Feeling alone is a strain

Invite me to come
To the places you go
Ask over and over
Till I no longer say "no"

Hold my hand in love
When the pain is too much
There is healing found
In this simple touch

Death changed who I am
Don't ask me to go back
A soul changed by grief
Has to find a new track

Embrace this new me
As I strive to go on
Understanding my life
When my loved one is gone

I will tell of love shared
And speak their name
For today and forever
I hope you do the same
