Annual Memorial Service
Monday, December 2nd 2013

Ashbourne-Donaghmore Parish celebrated it’s Annual Memorial Service recently. This years chosen theme was: “If Tears Could Build a Stairway”. The name of each person who died throughout the year was included in a tear drop and hung on the Tree of Remembrance.

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway”

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say “Goodbye”.
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you –
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you’ll always stay.
