EPITAPHS

When a loved one is laid to rest, the final stage of closure involves the placement of a monument identifying their grave. It is here that we are given one final occasion to communicate the significance of our loved one. Epitaphs can highlight personality traits or accomplishments in life. Even though epitaphs have varied over time one thing remains a constant ~ That epitaphs are a meaningful way to give respect to the deceased

What we keep in memory is ours forever

 

Loving memories last forever

 

Sweet are the memories silently kept of the one we loved and will never forget

 

Of tender heart and generous spirit

 

To the world she was but one, to us she was the world

So much love, so little time

 

Sun, sea, surf and sand

 

A friend to many, sadly missed

 

Too well loved to ever be forgotten

 

Precious are the memories

 

Always a giver now at peace in God’s garden

 

Remembering you is easy, we do it every day

 

It’s the emptiness without you, that never goes away

 

We never lose the ones we love, and you were loved so much

 

The life that touches the hearts of others lives on forever

 

Rest in peace sweet lady

 

Step softly, our loved one lies here

 

Taken from us so suddenly, we never had a chance to say goodbye

 

Do not stand at my grave and cry I am not there, I did not die

 

I live with the risen Lord

 

Just remember, in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows, lies the seed that, with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose

 

To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven

 

Some people can take an ordinary day

 

And swirl a ribbon of happiness around it, making a gift for all who pass their way

 

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence

 

Two tired eyes are sleeping, two willing hands are still

 

The one who worked so hard for us, is resting at God’s will

 

What we keep in memory is ours forever

 

What we keep in memory is ours, unchanged forever

 

Few hearts like him with virtue warmed, few hearts with knowledge so informed

 

If there’s another world, he lives in bliss

 

Across the years I will walk with you – in deep, green forest; on shores of sand; and when our time on earth is through, in heaven, too, you will have my hand

 

Wonderful was your love for us

 

The measure of a great heart is not how much you love, but how much you are loved by others

 

God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be

 

So he put his loving arms around you and whispered come to me

 

A golden heart stop beating, hard working hands at rest

 

God broke our hearts to prove to us he takes the best

 

Mourn not my death, but celebrate my life.

 

May the loving memories of the past live with us in spirit

 

To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die
-Thomas Campbell-

 

The love we hold back is the pain we leave behind

 

Life has not ended, only changed

 

Love One Another As I have loved You.

And the sound of a voice that is still
-Tennyson-

 

For they conquer who believe they can
-Virgil-

 

They who forgive most, shall be most forgiven
-Bailey-

Men Christ shall come, and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart

An Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind, be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again…

 

May God hold you in the palm of His hand

 

It’s the hardest fact one can’t ignore, it’s the kindest heart that beats no
more

 

Death can never separate those who are bonded together by the ties of pure love

 

As I cross on life’s tumultuous seas may God be with you and comfort you

 

In God’s care

 

The Lord is my Shepherd

Let her own works praise her at the gates

 

Generous of heart, constant of faith

 

Out of sorrow God speaks to us best

 

Our love goes with you and our souls wait to join you

 

And I will give you rest

 

Trust in God

 

And so when little ones depart,
We who are left behind,
Must realise how much God
Loves little children -
For angels are hard to find.

 

Into paradise the angels lead you live well – laugh often – love much

 

Goodness is its own reward

 

Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be (Browning)

 

Wherever a beautiful soul has been there is a trail of beautiful memories

 

A lady of great character whose judgement, humour, and friendly spirit brought out the finest in those around her. The influence of her life upon others is a flame that will ever burn brightly

Until we meet again

 

Our love is eternal

 

For yesterday is but a memory and tomorrow is only a vision

I have fought the good fight

I have finished my course

I have kept the faith

 

Rest, O weary traveller for with the dawn comes great joy

 

I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday and I love today

 

If our love could have saved him (her) He (She) would not have died

 

Step softly, a dream lies buried here

 

God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference

All things to the glory of God
