Always In Our Thoughts and Prayers


All Our Love Always


And Jesus Called Her / him To Heaven



 Faithful Friend A Husband Dear

 A Tender Father Lies Here

In Love He Lived In Peace He Died

Life Was Desired That God Denied



 Light Is From Our Household Gone

A Voice We Loved Is Stilled

A Place Is Vacant In Our Home

Which Never Can Be Filled.


At Rest.


Blessed Are The Pure In Heart.


Deep In Our Hearts Their Memories We Keep.



ear Husband Now My Life Is Past

You Faithful Loved Me To The Last

Grieve Not For Me But Pity Take

On My Dear Children for My Sake


Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

I Am Not There. I Do 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.


Your Life A Beautiful Memory

Your Absence A Silent Grief


Each time I see your Picture

You seem to smile and say

Don’t cry I’m only sleeping

Will meet again someday


Forever In Our Thoughts


Farewell dear children our lives are past

We laboured hard until the last

Grieve not for us nor sorrow make

But love each other for our sake.


Gone But Not Forgotten.


Gone Are The Days We Used To Share

But In Our Hearts You're Always There


His life a beautiful memory

his absence a silent grief


Her end was peace.


He Lived For Those He Loved

And Those He Loved Will Remember.


He Never Failed To Do His Best

His Heart Was True And Tender

He Simply Lived For Those He Loved

And Those He Loved Remember


In God's Garden Of Memories

We Meet Every Day


In Heavenly Love Abiding


Life Is Uncertain Death Is Sure,

Sin the Wound and Christ the Cure


Loved and Remembered Always


May They Rest In Peace"


No Farewell Words Were Spoken

No Time To Say Goodbye,

You Were Gone Before We Knew It,

And Only God Knows Why.



’ What A Hope I Have In Store

That We Shall Meet and Part No More



ne 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 Have 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 Son, My 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."


His Life Was Nobly Given




Re-United Forever


Resting Where No Shadows Fall.


So Sadly Missed Day By Day

But In Our Hearts You Will Always Stay


Thy Will Be Done


The Happy Times We Had Together

The Happy Days We Knew

Are Filled Again So Often

In Our Memories Of You


The Lord Is My Shepherd.


Time Passes Memories Stay

Quietly Remembered Every Day.


Two Faithful Friends Two Parents Dear


"Thoughts Return to Scenes Long Past

Years Roll On But Memories Last"


Through All The Tears And Heartache

There's One Thing For Which I'm Glad

That You Chose Me To Share With You

Those Precious Years We Had


Till We Meet Again.


This tribute of respect sincere

I dedicate unto my father dear

Hoping to meet again in realms above

Where all is peace and happiness and love


Waiting for the Coming

Of Our Lord Jesus Christ.


We Made A Promise

Till Death Do Us Part

But When The Time Came

It Broke My Heart



ith Patience To The

End He Did Submit

And Murmer'd Not

At What the Lord Thought Fit

His Soul and Body Both He Did Resign

Unto The Lord at His Appointed Time.


We Never Got To Say Goodbye

We Guess Its Just As Well

For We Could Never Say Goodbye

To One We Loved So Well


When I Woke This Morning

An Angel Said To Me

I Know You're Missing Someone

Because I Have Her Here With Me

We Know You're With The Good Lord Mum

Cos He Only Takes The Best

We Leave You In His Keeping

So You Can Have Your Rest


We Loved Him with an Everlasting Love


We Cry Because You Are Gone

But Smile Because Your Memory Lives On


Your Life A Beautiful Memory

Your Absence A Silent Grief


Your Presence We Miss,

Your Love We Treasure,

In Our Hearts You Will Stay Forever.



"How lovd. how valued once avails Thee not

To whom related or by whom begot

A heap of dust alone remains of Thee

Tis all THOU art and all the proud shall be"


All you that Doth Behold this stone

Pray think how quickly I was gone

Therefore Repent no time Delay

I in my prime was snitcht Away'


Dear husband now my life is past

you faithful lov'd me to the last

Grieve not for me but pity take

on my dear children for my sake


Be always ready no time delay

I in my prime was call'd away


I will lift up mine eyes up to the hills.


"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints"


"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord"


"If we be dead with Christ we shall also live with Him


Those We Love Can Never Be

More Than A Thought Apart

For As Long As There's A Memory

They Live On In Our Heart...

"From life's vain Cares He's now redress'd

In hopes with Christ to find eternal Rest

Mark well this life which did agree

In Friendship Faith and Charity"
