Some ideas for inscriptions

Love's last gift; remembrance

To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die

Only good night beloved, not farewell

Peace perfect peace

Leave we now our loved one sleeping
his life a beautiful memory
his absence a silent grief

At rest

Rest in peace

Resting where no shadows fall

A tiny flower lent not given
to bud on earth and bloom in heaven


Until the day dawns

To wake again in heaven

Rest after weariness

Life's work well done
life's race well run
life's crown well won
now comes rest

A light from our household has gone
a voice we loved is stilled
a place is vacant in our home
which can never be filled

Happy smiling always content
loved and respected wherever she went
always so thoughtful, loving and kind,
abeautiful memory she left behind

Those cheerful smiles, that heart
of gold the dearest voice the world
could hold, a beautiful soul
in a garden of rest, its true they
say god chooses the best

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die

Gone from us, but not forgotten,
never shall thy memory fade
sweetest thoughts shall ever linger
round the spot where thou art laid

Gone is the face I loved so dear
silent the voice I loved to hear
'tis sad but true, I wonder why
the best are always the first to die

God takes our loved ones from
our homes but never
from our hearts

How hard is it to part with those,
we hold on earth so dear,
the heart no greater trial, knows,
no sorrow more severe

Farewell in hope and love,
in faith, in peace, in prayer,
till he whose home is ours above,
unite us there

Good was his heart, and in friendship
sound, patient in pain, and loved
by all around, his pains are o'er, his
grief forever done, a life of
everlasting joy has now begun

Your memories are our keepsakes
with which we will never part;
god has you in his keeping,
we have you in our hearts

God gave us strength to take it,
and courage to bear the blow,
but what it meant to lose you,
no-one but God will know

Loving and kind in all his ways
upright and just to the end of his days,
sincere and true in heart and mind,
a beautiful memory he left behind

Good was his heart, his friendship true,
loved and respected by all he knew,
to a beautiful life came a sudden end,
but he died as he lived, everyone's friend

She gave us love in fullest measure,
care, devotion, memories to treasure;
in our hearts she will always live,
the dearest mother God could give

Though absent you are always here,
still loved, still missed, still very dear;
just as you were you always will be
a loving thought in our memory

A smile for all, a heart of gold,
one of the best this world could hold,
never selfish, always kind,
what a beautiful memory to leave behind
