G- 1
Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal

G- 2
I think of you as watching from
a time and space beyond the sky,
a place where we might someday come

G- 3
May the journey on your next adventure be as joy-filled
as your time with us. See you soon!

G- 4
To the world you may have just been somebody,
but to all of us you were the world.
Thank you for the time you spent here!

G- 5
Life is not measured
By the number of breaths we take,
But by the moments
That take our breath away

G- 6
Behold my friends as you pass by
As you are now, so once was I
As I am now, soon you shall be
Give thyself to God and follow me

G- 7
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One's nearer God's heart in a garden,
Than anywhere else on earth

G- 8
Your presence is a gift to the world,
You're unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be
Take it one day at a time.

G- 9
I can only hope we shall see each other again
In that place where there is only love and no shadows fall,
You have touched my very being...I shall remember you

G- 10
We miss you very much and love you dearly
We know our God is taking care of you
And you are now one of his special angels
You are forever in our hearts
We can't wait to be with you again

G- 11
You taught all that knew you what courage meant
And have shown us an example in death as you
did in life. God give me strength in my life without you.

G- 12
I pray you can see me now and be proud of what
I have become because of your example, but most
of all I thank you because you loved me so much

G- 13
Don't mourn my loss, whatever you do
My leaving brings you closer to the loved ones
I have left behind and all the joys the future holds

G- 14
Shed not for her the bitter tear
Nor give the heart to vain regret
Tis but mere ashes that lie here
The gem that filled it sparkles yet

G- 15
Beneath this simple stone
That marks his resting place
Our precious darling sleeps alone
In the Lord's long embrace

G- 16
No pain, no grief, no anxious fear
can reach our loved one sleeping here.
