J Edwards Funeral Directors holds Christmas Blessing

J Edwards Funeral Directors have held Christmas Tree Blessings in their funeral homes in Waterlooville and Bedhampton where clients from the past year have been invited to attend and place personal message cards on the tree in memory of their loved ones.

A blessing held on Monday 12th December 2011 at J Edwards Funeral Directors, 13 St Georges Walk, Waterlooville, was led by Father Mike Sheffield of St George’s Church in Waterlooville and was accompanied by Father Timon Singh Assistant Curate at St George’s Church.

Father Sheffield commented “It was a pleasure to be asked again to bless the Christmas tree at J Edwards Funeral Directors in Waterlooville. This is the first year without their loved ones, and this gives us the opportunity to join together with the families to offer support and comfort in this difficult time leading up to Christmas”.

Funeral Co-ordinators Belinda Rowland and Sharon Smith added “It was a privilege to offer this blessing, where the families were given the opportunity to place a star on our Christmas tree with their personal message, to remember their loved ones.”

The Christmas tree will now remain within the reception area at the funeral home in Waterlooville as well at the neighbouring J Edwards funeral home in Bedhampton where another blessing has taken place, until after the festive season.
