A Poem To Honor Funeral Directors From mysendoff.com

Funeral professionals are very often the unsung heroes who act as a guiding light, helping families through the darkest of times when a death occurs. Few of us realize the positive impact that they provide until we are guided through a loss by a professional funeral director.

Funeral directors are a shoulder of comfort, trusted confidants who share their experiences with death to help others understand their loss. These caring professionals help reinforce the value of honoring a life lived while also easing the burden of those left behind.

Mysendoff.com recognizes the compassionate caregiving that funeral professionals provide their families. As a tribute to their passion and lifetime commitment to being caregivers for those that have left and those left behind, we have created this poem in their honor.

We Are Caregivers For Life

We were once known as undertakers, undertaking a calling others would not.
We are now funeral directors, giving caring direction so those gone aren’t forgot.

We are frontline supporters who know the path we’ll all take.
We guide families through loss with the choices they make.

We provide answers to questions with a personal touch.
We help celebrate a life that still means so much.

We serve those who have left, comforting those left behind.
We promise to be understanding, compassionate and kind.

We arrange funerals with good judgement that help start the journey.
We bring comfort and confidence so our families needn’t worry.

We understand it’s alright to shed tears, have regrets and sorrow.
We provide a harbor of calm offering hope for tomorrow.

We know that loving and losing is all part of living.
We ensure a gathering takes place so others can share in the giving.

We help those who remain remember their loved ones now gone.
We encourage good memories with tribute, tradition and song.

We give strength and support to the families we serve.
We work hard to provide the dignity we know they deserve.

We are caregivers for life who also care for the dead.
We share with the living where our life’s calling has led.

  • I am a funeral director. And this poem is what it is about. Through covid 19 we are the unsung heroes and this poem sums it up. Thank you. If you could send me more like this for our profession. It would be fantastic
