"Good resource... I'm a working Civil Funeral Celebrant and I'm always in need of a 'relevant' poem. Michael has produced a book that combines a nice selection of old and new poems which is great as I can usually find something to suit the ceremony I'm working on." --Julie Jenkinson
English poet Michael Ashby is one of the world's leading remembrance poets whose global funeral poems have touched tens of millions of lives in over 172 countries through his FACEBOOK page Death, Funeral, Bereavement Poems, his website thefuneralpoem.com & his poetry books. (His most famous poem "I AM NOT GONE" has 2,000,000+ Facebook Likes, 100,000+ Shares & 15,000+ Comments.) Michael is fortunate to live with his poems in South West England on East Devon's spectacular Jurassic coastline, spending part of each day gazing out to sea waiting for his next poem to appear on the horizon. Some nights he is awoken by the sounds of an argument between the sea and the local pebble beach coming in through his bedroom window. He's not sure who starts it, but they always settle in the end. Michael enters his 67th year on "Spaceship Earth" with his collection of poetry written across life's rich spectrum published in "ALCHEMY" & his "FUNERAL POEMS" book.
