Funeral Poem for Friends

Carol was my best friend from first grade right through our golden years. We shared many happy times, and many sad times. She was the best friend that I have ever had, and I wrote this poem for her family. I will never forget Carol - she was a wonderful friend.

Farewell To Carol

© Judy Marriott
Farewell my friend you're leaving
It's time for you to go
Your friendship was a blessing
And I will miss you so
We Shared so many secrets
You brightened up my days
You brought me so much happiness
With your kind and loving ways
You lifted up my spirits
When I was feeling blue
No matter what was happening
You knew just what to do
We ran between the raindrops
And walked beneath the sun
Ran barefoot in the summertime
And oh, we had such fun
Through all the ups and downs of life
The good times and the sad
From high school days to Golden years
The best friend I ever had
God is here to take you home
Now you and I must part
I love you and forever
You will live within my heart.

  • June the 2nd we lost a good woman by the name of Maggie Lynn she passed away from cancer, Her son Bryan Lynn wanted to have a service for his mom, but didn't get his wish. On June the 5th we planned a memorial service for her at their home with family and friends, we laid out things that she made and things that she collected, we posted pictures of her and family and friends. We let a bunches of balloons and white roses go to represent her going home to god and when it got dark we lit candles for a moment of silence, later on that night at 12:20 I received a call that my friend couldn't wake Bryan up, we went to his house to try to help only to watch our friend our family take his last breath, he left us all behind to deal with the heartache and pain of them both being gone, He was a momma's boy and he wasn't going to let his mom make this trip by herself! Maggie May and Bryan I hope that you all are happy, we <3 and miss you very much, RIP, LOVE YOUR family you left behind!

  • Last night, 13 November 2013, at 11pm, a register call was made in Heaven and your name my dear friend, Sibongile "Sbosh" Hlanganyane (to be Mabilisa) was on the list of those God wanted back. 16 years of the BEST of FRIENDS friendship, a lot of memories came flooding in. I would like to smile as I recall the but the reality of you being gone hits and hurts and tears come running down my cheeks. I can't think of a time when I'm not gonna miss you, on my birthdays, when I have my first baby, when I get married in every milestone recallable I'll be forever missing your sense of humor, laughter, spark and your unconditionally undying love and care. Gugu and Nqobile will miss you but I know that both you and Sandile will be looking over them all the time.

    Sharp mngani. I love you.
