Sarah’s Toasty Blessing – Memorial Poem

Read by Marc Lemezma Funeral Celebrant – Maidstone Kent


Sarah’s Toasty Blessing I recently conducted a Celebration of Life service for a unique lady who was, among many things, a wine expert. I built the service around a vines’ life cycle and the production of wine. We used this specially written blessing rather than a traditional ‘committal’ speech. We, of course, said farewell by toasting her with a perfectly chilled glass of bubbly. Her family have kindly permitted me to share this with you all. Enjoy

Sarah’s Toasty Blessing by Marc Lemezma

May you journey on a path facing southward.

May your vines climb strong toward the Sun.

May all life’s problems drain away through the soil.

May your harvest be second to none.

May you age and be riddled to perfection.

May your bubbles rise strong to the top.

May the cage that holds you soon be loosened.

May your cork fill the room with its pop!

May your glass be full of happiness.

May the company you keep bring you fun.

May your bubbles gush like leaves in the wind.

May they dance like angels on your tongue.

May you drink enough to be merry, yet

May your memories of me remain.

May you find in the fridge one more bottle,

For when we meet here, sometime again

Ciao Bella!
