Serenely he/she rests after a long life
of dedication to his/her family and work.
Husband/Wife and father/mother leaves
his/her children a heritage of trust and love.
We offer you, dear Lord, after taking away from
us the person we held dearest on this earth,
our sorrow for the peace of his/her soul.
May he/she rest in peace
He/she received from God the great gift of immense
goodness and gave his/her life for the good of his/her
family. Called from this world to his/her heavenly
home, he/she departed in the name of Our Lord,
leaving fondest memories and sorrow in the hearts
of all who knew him/her.
Your memory will always live in the hearts of those
that have always loved you, dear (Name). Like an
angel in heaven can you watch over your beloved
whom you left behind in deep sorrow.
A kind word for everyone, he/she died as he/she
lived, everyone’s friend. His/her cheerful smile,
his/her heart of gold.
The dearest person this world could hold.
Do not grieve my departure, feel that I am still close to you.
I will love you from heaven, as I have loved you on earth.
Fold him/her in Thy arms, Father, and let him/her
henceforth be a messenger of love
between our hearts and Thine.
He/she is with God.
He/she will remain in our hearts forever.
Death is but a stepping stone to the glory of His presence.
In our hearts he/she will always be,
cherished and loved in our memory.
There comes a time for all of us when we
must say goodbye, but memories of those
we love live on and never die.
We have loved him/her in life,
let us not forget him/her in death.
Always in our hearts, although at rest in God’s care.
God will link the broken chain, closer when we meet again.
Eternal rest grant unto him/her O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him/her.
May he/she rest in peace. Amen.
