“tell him that we love him, and we miss him”

It is with the deepest sorrow that we have to tell you that our dearly loved friend and colleague Graham Maule, artist and musician, founding member of the Wild Goose Resource Group and staff member of the Iona Community for many years, died peacefully on Sunday 29th December after a short illness.  A full obituary will follow in due course.

The Burial will follow at Craufurdland Natural Woodland Burial Ground, near Fenwick in Ayrshire. Directions will be given at the funeral, or see: https://craufurdland.co.uk/burial-ground/

Thereafter there will be a time for meeting and light refreshments in the auditorium at Oran Mor, which is at the Botanic Gardens junction of Great Western Rd and Byres Rd, G12 8QX, from 14.30 to 18.30.

 

Go, silent friend, your life has found its ending:
to dust returns your weary, mortal frame.
God, who before birth called you into being,
now calls you hence, his accent still the same.
Go, silent friend, your life in Christ is buried;
for you He lived and died and rose again.
Close by His side your promised place is waiting
where, fully known, you shall with God remain.

Go, silent friend. Forgive us if we grieved you;
safe now in heaven, kindly say our name.
Your life has touched us, that is why we mourn you;
our lives without you cannot be the same.
Go, silent friend, we do not grudge you glory.
Sing, sing with joy deep praises to your Lord.
You, who believed that Christ would come back for you,
now celebrate that Jesus keeps his word.
