The Gaelic blessing below was given to us at our wedding by my best man. Six years later and our friend Patrick suggested the same blessing for Roxie to help her little soul safely to the other side. Separately I had chosen a piece of music for the funeral, Attendite, performed by the Libera Boys Choir. And the lyrics? Yes, the words from the same blessing…perfect.
A blessing for Roxanne Carris
Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
Go now Roxanne, with our deep love and blessing
Go now and so it is.
