Rest in Peace

Our thoughts are ever with you

Loving you always

Verses for All

Thinking of the thoughtful things
That you have said and done
And loving you a little more
Dear (name), for every one.

No one knows our heartaches,
Only those who have lost can tell
Of the grief that we bear in silence
For the one we loved so well.

O happy hours we once enjoyed,
How sweet their memory still.
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.

To have, to hold and then to part;
Is the greatest sorrow of our heart.

The depths of sorrow we cannot tell
Of the loss of one we loved so well;
And while she sleeps a peaceful sleep
Her memory we shall always keep.

More and more each day we miss her,
Friends may think the wound is healed.
But they little know the sorrow
Lies within our hearts concealed.

"Thy will be done" seems hard to say
When one we loved has passed away.
Some day, perhaps, we'll understand.

Gone, but not forgotten.

Heavy are our hearts today,
Memory brings you back once more
To the time when you were with us,
To the happy days of yore.

Just a thought of sweet remembrance
Just a memory sad and true,
Just the love and sweet devotion
Of one who thinks of you.

Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We'll read the meaning of our tears
And there we'll understand.

The flowers we place upon your grave,
May wither and decay,
But love for you who sleeps beneath,
Will never fade away.

Verses for Children

A little lamb too sweet and pure,
Upon this earth to roam;
An angel came
And took our dear child home.

He was a flower too sweet for earth.
Sent here but for a while.
God marked him when He gave him birth
And took him with a smile.

Two little hands are resting,
A loving heart is still,
A little son we loved is waiting

For us just over the hill.

An angel in the book of life wrote down your daughter’s birth
then whispered as she closed the book “Too beautiful for earth”.

 

God loves His tiny miracles, each and every one,
but when He saw her little face – He knew what must be done.
He said, “This one I need to keep, she has a job to do
and when you pass and come home to me, she’ll be waiting here for you.”

 

Two little hands are resting,
A loving heart is still,
A little son we loved is waiting
For us just over the hill.

 

A little lamb too sweet and pure,
Upon this earth to roam;
An angel came
And took our dear child home.

 

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
up in Heaven is where you are.
Flying high and twinkling bright,
our guiding star, our shining light.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
our perfect angel is who you are.

 

Verses for Her

In my heart your memory lingers
Always tender, fond and true;
There's not a day, dear mother,
I do not think of you.

Sunshine passes, shadows fall,
Love's remembrance outlasts all;
And though the years be many or few,
They are filled with remembrance of you.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
The world's weary trouble and trials are past.
In silence she suffered, in patience she bore,
Till God called her home to suffer no more.

In our home she is fondly remembered.
Sweet memories cling to her name.
Those who loved her in life sincerely
Still love her in death just the same.

Loving and kind in all her ways,
Upright and just to the end of her days;
Sincere and true, in her heart and mind,
Beautiful memories, she left behind.

And while she lies in peaceful sleep
Her memory we shall always keep.

In our home she is fondly remembered.
Sweet memories cling to her name.
Those who loved her in life sincerely
Still love her in death just the same.

Verses for Him

You're not forgotten, father dear,
Nor ever shall you be;
As long as life and memory last
I shall remember thee.

What would I give to clasp his hand,
His happy face to see,
To hear his voice and see his smile,
That meant so much to me.

The rolling stream of life rolls on,
But still the vacant chair,
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile
Of the one who once sat there.

Sunshine passes, shadows fall.
Love's remembrance outlasts all,
And though the years be many or few,
They are filled with remembrance of you.

Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear,
Fond memories linger every day,
Remembrance keeps him near.

May you rest in peace, dear father,
Until we meet again.

His memory is as dear today
As in the hour he passed away.

His charming ways and smiling face
Are a pleasure to recall.
He had a kindly word for each
And died beloved of all.

He had a nature you could not help loving
And a heart that was purer than gold
And to those who knew him and loved him
His memory will never grow cold

Verses for Husbands and Wives

Her loving face I hope to see again
Though the days have passed away;
Sleep, dear wife, and take your rest,
Missed by us who loved you best.

My lips cannot tell how I miss her,
My heart cannot tell what to say;
God only knows how I miss her,
In a home that is lonesome today.

I have lost my soul's companion,
A life linked with my own;
And day by day I miss her more,
As I walk through life alone.

A thought of sweet remembrance,
A memory sad and true,
The love and sweet devotion,
Of one who thinks of you.

Gone from us, but leaving memories
Death can never take away,
Memories that will always linger
While upon this earth we stay.
