Memorial Card Verses


Death leaves heartache
No one can heal,
Memories are treasures
No one can steal,
Some may forget you
Now that you are gone,
But we will remember
No matter how long.
You will always stay
loved and remembered,
In every way,
No tears, no verse,
Can ever say how much
we miss you every day.


Don’t cry for me in sadness; don’t weep for me in sorrow,
For I will be beside you, as sure as comes tomorrow.
My body has gone but my spirit lives on, as does my love
For you.
Just as in life. I’ll watch over you, I always will be true.
My blood lives on in my children, how I’ve watched them
grow up with pride.
I’ll live on within them, always by their side.
I know my jokes weren’t always funny and jobs weren’t
Always done.
Just try and always remember the good times the days when
We had fun.
Reach out if you need me, for I will always be near.
Just talk to me, as if I am there, I promise I will hear.
For I’ll live on, with in your mind, we’ll never be apart,
As long as you keep my memory, deep within your heart.
So lift up your hearts, don’t be sad, my spirit hasn’t gone.
While your still there, so am I, I really will live on


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where this is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not seek to be consoled
as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life


Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Remembrance is a golden chain
Death tries to break,but all in vain.
To have, to love, and then to part
Is the greatest sorrow of one's heart.
The years may wipe out many things
But some they wipe out never.
Like memories of those happy times
When we were all together.


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints;
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you”.

We Never Knew That Morning,
The Sorrow That Day Would Bring,
When A Loving Heart Stopped Beating,
And We Couldn't Do A Thing…


The Parting Was So Sudden,
We Often Wonder Why...
The Saddest Part Of It All,
Not Getting To Say GoodBye


Don't remember me with sadness
Don't remember me with tears
Remember all the laughter
We've had throughout the years.

Then when the summer sunshine
Awakes the flowers in bloom
I'll walk that light from heaven
Around the corners of every room.

Do the things we did before,
The same in every way
Just whisper a little prayer to me
At the dawn of every day

Just think of me as present
Don't think of me as past
For my love is a blessing
In death it still can last.

Forget your troubles and worries
They are mine ever more
I'll watch and care and love you
From heaven's open door

And when your road gets rough and rocky
Or you're down and need a crutch
Remember I'm right beside you
Just and inch too short to touch

We honor you for whom you were
and the special things you’ve done...
that made your life so rewarding
and made you such a special woman.
Your memories are ours to cherish
as we fondly remember your ways...
keeping you safely tucked in our hearts
is where you’ll always stay.
The world will never be the same because
of the beautiful difference you’ve made


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!


Gone are the days we used to share,
but in our hearts you are always there.
The gates of memory will never close:
we miss you more than anyone knows.
With tender love and deep regret,
we who love you will never forget.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
silent is the voice, the voice we loved to hear.
Too far away for sight or speech,
but not too far for love to reach.
Sweet are the memories so clear,
in our thoughts you will always be near.


I can't repay the lessons
That you taught when I was small.
Or give you gift for gift
The daily treasures I recall...
I can't return encouragement
And loving words of praise.
In quite the way you did for me
Through all my childhood days.
But there is one gift that I can give,
 It's all the love you've earned.
For love is what you always taught...
And love is what I learned.


We honor you for whom you were
and the special things you’ve done...
that made your life so rewarding
and made you such a special woman.
Your memories are ours to cherish
as we fondly remember your ways...
keeping you safely tucked in our hearts
is where you’ll always stay


I will lend you, for a little time,
A child of mine, He said.
For you to love the while she lives,
And mourn for when she's dead.
It may be six or seven years,
Or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call her back,
Take care of her for Me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
And should her stay be brief.
You'll have her lovely memories,
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay,
Since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over,
In search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.
Now will you give her all your love,
Nor think the labour vain.
Nor hate me when I come
To take her home again?
I fancied that I heard them say,
'Dear Lord, Thy will be done!'
For all the joys Thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness,
We'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we've known,
Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for her,
Much sooner than we've planned.
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand.


You held my hand when I was small,
You caught me when I fell,
the hero of my childhood and of latter years as well.
Every time I think of you, my heart just fills with pride
and though I’ll always miss you,
I know you’re by my side.
In laughter and in sorrow, In sunshine and in rain,
I know you’re watching over me, until we meet again.


No person is ever truly alone.
Those who live no more,
Whom we loved,
Echo still within our thoughts,
Our words, our hearts.
And what they did
And who they were
Becomes a part of all that we are,


God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
And then there was nothing more to add
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it - Dad.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I did not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.


Our memories build a special bridge
when loved ones have to part
to help us feel we're with them still
and sooth a grieving heart.
Our memories span the years we shared,
preserving ties that bind,
They build a special bridge of love
and bring us peace of mind.


Say not, they die, those splendid souls,
Whose life is winged with purpose fine;
Who leave us, pointed to the goals;
Who learn to conquer and resign.
Such cannot die; they vanquish time,
And fill the world with glowing light,
Making the human life sublime
With memories of their secret might.
They cannot die whose lives are part
Of the great life that is to be;
Whose hearts beat with the world's great heart,
And throb with its high intensity.
Those souls are great, who, dying, gave
A gift of greater life to man;
Death stands abashed before the brave;
They own a life death cannot ban.


Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.


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.


Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my own familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am 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
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting
when we meet again!


Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.


It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
Save the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care…
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul…
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell, my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
For that’s what I’ll like when you live in the hearts
Of those you love, remember then
You never die
He is not lost our dearest love,
Nor has he travelled far,
Just stepped inside home’s loveliest room
And left the door ajar


Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.


If roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.


I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.


If only we could see the splendour of the land
To which our loved ones are called from you and me
We’d understand
If only we could hear the welcome they receive
From old familiar voices all so dear
We would not grieve
If only we could know the reason why they went
We’d smile and wipe away the tears that flow
And wait content.


I felt an angel near today, though one I could not see
I felt an angel oh so close, sent to comfort me
I felt an angel’s kiss, soft upon my cheek
And oh, without a single word of caring did it speak
I felt an angel’s loving touch, soft upon my heart
And with that touch, I felt the pain and hurt within depart
I felt an angel’s tepid tears, fall softly next to mine
And knew that as those tears did dry a new day would be mine
I felt an angel’s silken wings enfold me with pure love
And felt a strength within me grow, a strength sent from above
I felt an angel oh so close, though one I could not see
I felt an angel near today, sent to comfort me.


The clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.The present is our own,
So live love, toil with a will
Place no faith in “tomorrow,”
For the clock may then be still.


When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high,
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone.
You’ll never walk alone

When God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
He put his arms around you
And whispered come to me
He didn’t like what you went through
And he gave you rest
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best
And when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We wouldn’t wish you back
To suffer that again
Today we say goodbye
And as you take your final rest
That garden must be beautiful
Because you are one of the best.


There is a plan far greater than the plan you know;
There is a landscape broader than the one you see.
There is a haven where storm – tossed souls may go-
You call it death – we, immortality.
You call it death – this seemingly endless sleep;
We call it birth – the soul at last set free.
‘Tis hampered not by time or space – you weep.
Why weep at death? ‘Tis immortality.
Farewell, dear Voyageur – ’twill not be long.
Your work is done – now may peace rest with thee.
Your kindly thoughts and deeds – they will live on.
This is not death – ’tis immortality.
Farewell, dear voyageur – the river winds and turns;
The cadence of your song wafts near to me,
And now you know the thing that all men learn:
There is no death – there’s immortality.


You’ve just walked on ahead of me and I’ve got to understand.
You must release the ones you love and let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can but I’m missing you so much,
 if I could only see you and once more feel your touch.
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me, don’t worry I’ll be fine,
but now and then I swear I feel, your hand slip into mine. –


May you always walk in sunshine
and God’s love, around you flow ..
For the happiness you gave us
 no one will ever know.
 It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone ..
A part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
A million times we’ve needed you
a million times we’ve cried ..
If love could only have saved you
You never would have died


No matter how far you are,I will always be very near.
Even if you whisper quietly, I will always be able to hear.
Whenever you need me,I will answer your call.
And catch you on my wings,if you should begin to fall.

When you are troubled,and filled with despair.
I'll guide you to the light,with the power of prayer.
I will be your warm shelter,in life's unpredictable storms.
Your needle and thread,if your heart has been torn.

A shoulder for you to cry on,when your tears need to flow.
The loving and caring heart,your heart needs me to show.
Your giver of new hope,when all your faith has gone.
The strength that you will need,if it's hard for you to be strong.
A lighthouse to guide you,when you have lost your way.
The arms holding you close,when your thoughts go astray.
For I am forever your Angel;guardian of all your life brings.
Ready for whenever you call me,to wrap you safely in my wings.


I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep,
and take a walk down memory lane,
with tears upon my cheeks.
Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday,
but missing you is heartache that never goes away.

Right now I'm in a better place,
and though we seem apart,
I'm closer than I ever was...
I'm there inside your heart.

I'm with you when you greet each day
and while the sun shines bright.
I'm there to share the sunsets too...
I'm with you every night.

The rainy days that we endured,
the joyful times we shared--
Just look inside your loving heart,
and you will find me there.

And when that day arrives
that we are no longer are apart,
I'll smile and hold you close to me...
forever in my heart.


You held my hand when I was small,
you caught me when I fell,
the hero of my childhood
and of latter years as well.
Every time I think of you,
my heart just fills with pride
and though I’ll always miss you,
I know you’re by my side.
In laughter and in sorrow,
In sunshine and in rain,
I know you’re watching over me,
until we meet again.  


Time cannot steal the treasures
that we carry in our hearts.
Nor ever dim the shining thoughts
our cherished past imparts
For the memories of the ones
we loved still cast a gentle glow,
To grace our days and light
our paths, wherever we may go.


There is a home that lies beyond
And past its golden door
Awaits the one who's now away,
Not lost -just gone before.
And in that home that lies beyond
The Master will prepare
A place for you,
And when He calls
You'll meet your loved ones there.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.


There comes a time for all of us
When we must say goodbye,
But memories of those we love
Live on and never die.

Although the curtain falls
at last,
Is that a cause to grieve?
The future life is brighter still
If only we believe.

So trust in God’s eternal care,
And when the Master calls,
We’ll know a fairer
world’s beyond,
Although the curtain falls.


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 a part of the Master plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me ~ but let me go.


They Say There Is A Reason
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind my smiles,
No-one knows how many times
I've broken down and cried,
I want to tell you something
So there won't be any doubt,
You are both so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without.

If we could have a lifetime wish,
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
for yesterday and you.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried.
Neither will a thousand tears.
we know because we've cried.
You left behind our broken hearts,
and happy memories too.
But we never wanted memories,
we only wanted you.
It broke our hearts to loose you,
but you don't go alone.
For part of our hearts went with you
the day God called you home......


Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
 I took his hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
 O yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
 Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee God wanted me now:
He set me free…


A Silent Tear -
Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I'm really still there inside your mind
Don't cry for me now I'm gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don't think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I'm in that place that's filled with love
Known to you all, as "UP ABOVE"

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a love one’s gone. . .
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart
For as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in the heart.


At the rising of the sun
and its going down,
At the blowing of the wind
and in the chill of winter,
In the opening of the buds
and in the rebirth of the spring,
At the blueness of the skies
and in the warmth of summer,
At the rustling of the leaves
and the beauty of autumn,
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us,
As we remember them.


You are not forgotten, loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore
As time goes by we’ll miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place


“To laugh often and much; to win the
respect of intelligent people and the
affection of children; to earn the
appreciation of honest critics and endure
the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate
beauty; to find the best in others; to
leave the world a bit better whether by
healthy child, a garden patch, or a
redeemed social condition; to know even
one life has breathed easier because you
have lived. This is to have succeeded”


Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow…
Remember the joy, the laughter,
the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
Although my leaving
causes pain and grief
My going has eased my hurt
And given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
Not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because I will remember you all
And look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.


When you lived your life for others
and you loved without condition
When you made so many laugh
and your smile won’t be forgotten
When you left behind an empty place
that no one else can fill
When the friendships that you shared
long to be renewed
When you built your life on hope
and fulfilled it every day
The footprints that you left behind
will bring us face to face
So, goodbye is not forever,
You’re only steps away.
When you plant seeds in the lives of others
And water them with love and care
You will reap a harvest of sweet memories
That will follow you everywhere


The hardest thing
in life to bear ..
Is to want our angel
who’s no longer there.
So forgive us lord
if we still weep ..
You took away our angel
we wanted to keep.


A butterfly captures our hearts
from the moment they appear.
They are vibrant and graceful
as their presence lifts our spirits.
Gone much too soon,
they will never be forgotten.


A beautiful spirit endures
Through many transformations
And carries with it a patient endurance
A perseverance of the soul
That stands the test of time
The colors of our lives do not fade
But grow brighter with
every changing season


A butterfly captures our hearts
from the moment they appear.
They are vibrant and graceful
as their presence lifts our spirits.
Gone much too soon,
they will never be forgotten.


A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...
and for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world...
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,


Sprinkles of angel dust
flying all around ..
Glistening in your hair
sparkling, on the ground.
Our angels are telling us
not to be sad ..
Angel dust holds memories
of this, we must be glad.
So if you see some angel dust
laying on the ground ..
Your loved ones are telling you
of the peace they have found.

There’s always another tomorrow
however hard the day ..
There’s always an end to sorrow
time wipes our tears away.
There’s always a reason for living
though sad your heart may be ..
There’s always, another horizon
beyond the one you see.


Though your smile is gone forever
and your hand we cannot touch,
we have so many memories,
of the ones we loved so much.
Your memory is our keepsake,
 with which we’ll never part,
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.


Memories are a gift to treasure
ours of you will last forever ..
the pain of losing you will always stay
loved & remembered everyday.


Special Star
So Very Bright
It’s Time For Me
To Say Goodnight ..
So Close Your Eyes
And Snuggle Tight ..
I’m Wishing You
Sweet Dreams Tonight.–


Someday I hope to meet you
some day, I know not when ..
To clasp your hand in better lands
to never part again.–


Partings come
and hearts are broken ..
Loved ones go
with words unspoken.
Deep in our hearts
there’s a memory kept ..
For a husband and father
we’ll never forget.

Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I'm really still there inside your mind
Don't cry for me now I'm gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don't think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I'm in that place that's filled with love
Known to you all, as "up above"


His nature was loving and giving
His heart was made of pure gold ..
And to us who truly love him
His memory will never grow old.-
A life linked with my own ..
You’re still mine to remember
A husband proud to own.–


I have lost
Heaven has gained ..
The most wonderful Dad
this world contained.
There’s just one thing
that makes me glad ..
God chose you
to be my Dad.

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
 My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;    
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persever,
That when we live no more we may live ever.


You are not forgotten, my love
Nor will you ever be ..
As long as life and memory last
Your soul will live in me.


I’ll miss you now My heart is sore ..
As time goes by I’ll miss you more.
Your loving smile Your gentle face ..
No one can fill your vacant place. *
Partings come and hearts are broken ..
Loved ones go with words unspoken.
Deep in our hearts there’s a memory kept ..
For a husband and father we will NEVER FORGET. –


She always leaned to watch for us,
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.

And though we mocked her tenderly,
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe
Because she waited there.

Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget!
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.

Waiting till we come home to her,
Anxious if we are late,
Watching from Heaven’s window,
Leaning on Heaven’s gate.


Each time we look at your picture
You seem to smile and say
Don't be sad but courage take
And love each other for my sake
I know a smile I would love to see
A loving face so dear
I know a hand I would love to hold
A voice I long to hear
I know a heart thoughtful and true
I know them all, because I loved you


There are some we meet in passing
And forget as soon as they go
There are some we remember with pleasure
And feel honoured and privileged to know
You were that kind of person
Who leaves beautiful memories behind
And there will be many days
Which will bring fond memories to mind
