Dear Departed

This simple message can be found amongst the flowers and gravestones of Holy Trinity Church in Hertford Heath.

It seems somehow befitting for the peace of the churchyard and the memory of those that rest there.

The words are from a longer piece credited to William Shakespeare:

“Time is very slow for those who wait
Very fast for those who are scared
Very long for those who lament
Very short for those who celebrate
But for those who love time is eternal”
