When we remember your smile,

Though you are gone,
Sunny days, cool breezes,
Always for you, Mom.
His life is a beautiful memory,
His death is a silent grief;
He sleeps in God's beautiful garden,
In sunshine of perfect peace,
I miss him oh so much,
But realize God knew best,
He let me have him many years,
Then gently bid him rest.
farewell quote
goodbye quote
In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
Our hearts were almost broken,
You fought so hard to stay,
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peacefully free from pain,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer that again.
Gone yet not forgotten, Although we are apart, Your spirit lives within me, Forever in my heart.
His helping hand was always first to render any aid he could.
His voice was always raised in praise;
his words were wise and good.
Dear father, since you've gone away,
the ones you loved so true,
try hard to carry on the way,
we know you'd want us to.
He left us quietly,
His thoughts unknown,
But left us a memory,
We are proud to own;
So treasure him Lord,
In Your garden of rest,
For when on earth,
He was one of the best.
Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name,
But all we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your resting place we visit,
And put flowers there with care,
But no one knows the heartache,
As we turn and leave you there.
Words of condolence
We little knew that day
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly.
In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you.
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories.
Your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But God calls us one by one.
The chain will link again.
