We would like to thank all the Bryan-Braker Staff and their family and friends that volunteered their time as servers at the 52nd Leisure Town Men’s Club Pancake Breakfast. We had an excellent turnout and a wonderful morning! The Leisure Town Residents and their families were well fed and in good spirits leaving the breakfast. Looking forward to it again next year!

The right poem to read at a funeral will be different for you than it is for some others. Every individual is truly unique. Every life has its special story. A poem that resonates with one person may not express the emotions of another. Your choice is your own.
That does not mean that funeral poems others have used will fall flat with you, however. There is a reason why some poems make frequent appearances at memorial services. They address common issues associated with the loss of a loved one and communicate emotions in a clear and honest way.
In fact, those looking for funeral poems should consider at least briefly evaluating classic poems other have found valuable. Doing so exposes one to a wealth of potentially perfect verses.
The funeral process in our culture moves quickly. Many would argue that it moves too quickly. Time is never in surplus and there is often a sense of urgency and pressure surrounding the matter. The resulting intensity and anxiety may amplify the obviously emotionally trying nature of the experience. This is another reason to take a look at funeral poems others have found special and evocative. We would never want efficiency to govern matters of the heart, but finding a potentially quicker route to our goals is always welcome.
Do not become discouraged as you look for the right poem. There is a reason why you are drawn to the idea of using poetry at the services. It is a remarkable way to beautifully communicate emotional realities. Poetry, they say, originates in the soul and speaks directly to the souls of others. It is a wonderful way to express your emotions and to capture the spirit, beauty, and love of the departed.
Obviously, planning a memorial can be a very trying process. You should know, however, that you will manage this funeral successfully. As humans, we seem to have an almost instinctive ability to find the right tools and to communicate the right needs in emotionally trying times. You will find the right poem and the perfect words.

It’s about bringing those you love together, at a time of loss. It’s a natural thing to do, and over time, has become a socially-expected practice. More importantly, a funeral or memorial service, whether traditional or contemporary, is the first step in healing.
You can have your service anywhere, and anyway, you want. Your choices include the place, day of the week, and time of day; the musical selection, what prayers will be said or songs you’d like sung. We can arrange to have doves, butterflies, or balloons released at the close of the service. Keepsake gifts of your favorite candy can be given or wildflower seeds to be planted in your memory. We’re here to help you create the most memorable and meaningful service to honor your loved one.
