With tears we saw you suffer, We watched you fade away, Our hearts were slowly breaking, As you fought so hard to stay. You did not want to leave us, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God took you home.
Tired and weary you made no fuss, you tried so hard to stay with us, you suffered so much and told so few, you never deserved what you went through. Close to our hearts you will always stay, loved and remembered every day.
Out of this world of suffering, into God’s garden of rest, it must be a beautiful garden, because He always takes the best.
Beautiful memories woven in gold, this is the picture we tenderly hold, deep in our hearts your memory is kept, to love, cherish and never forget.
A face we love is missing, a voice we love is still, a place is vacant in our hearts, that no one else can fill.
A special smile, a special face, and in our hearts, a special place.
When I am gone, release me, let me go; You have so many things to see and do. You must not tie yourself to me with tears; Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess How much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you all have shown But now it’s time I travelled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me – if you must – Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part So bless the memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on – So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you cannot see or touch me, I’ll be near, And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear All of my love around you soft and clear.
Then when ‘you’ must come this way alone, I will greet you with a smile And a “Welcome Home”.
We speak your name with love and pride. We smile through tears we try to hide. Thank you Mum/Dad for the time we shared. The love you gave and the way you cared. You left a place no one can fill. We miss you Mum/Dad and always will.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
Think of me as one at rest, for me you should not weep, I have no pain, no troubled thoughts for I am just asleep. The living, thinking, me that was, is now forever still. And life goes on without me, as time forever will.
If your heart is heavy now, because I’ve gone away, dwell not long upon it friend, for none of us can stay. Those of you who liked me, I sincerely thank you all, and those of you who loved me, I thank you most of all.
The answer to life’s riddle, in life I never knew, I go with hope that now I will, and even so will you. Oh, foolish, foolish me that was, I who was so small, To have wondered, even worried at the mystery of it all.
And in my fleeting life span, as time went rushing by, I found some time to hesitate, to laugh, to love, to cry. Matters it now if time began, if time will ever cease? I was here, I used it all, and now I am at peace.
When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little – but not too long, And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me – but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take, And each must go alone. It’s all part of the Master’s plan, A step on the road to home.
When you’re lonely and sick of heart, Go to the friends we know, And lose your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me – but let me go.
Don’t think of her as gone away Her journey’s just begun Life holds so many facets This earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting From the sorrows and the tears In a place of warmth and comfort Where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing That we could know today How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of her as living In the hearts of those she touched For nothing loved is ever lost And she was loved so much.
God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be So he put his arms around you And whispered, come with me. With tearful eyes we watched you And saw you pass away And although we really loved you We would not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating Hard working hands at rest God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
You can shed tears that she is gone, Or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, Or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she’s gone, Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, Or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it. “LORD, You said that once I decided to follow You, You’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed You most You would leave me.”
The LORD replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle Autumn’s rain. When you awake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
Death is nothing at all; I have only slipped away into the next room. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by my old familiar name; Speak to me in the easy way you always used. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me. Let my name be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before, only better, infinitely happier and forever, we will be one together with Christ.
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done, I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days, I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
A wonderful man laid to rest For everyone he did his best His deeds were good His heart was kind A better husband and dad No-one could find
Loved by all who knew him
Sadly missed – Sleep peacefully
