Strength of the heart and peace in the mind are what I ask God for to give you in
this untimely loss

We are blessed to have known a person like her. She was a woman of strength and
exemplary deeds. Now, in her time of death, your sorrow we share. May in the
kingdom of God her dear soul rest.

She was a good mother and a great friend. Her loss is truly painful; but may we be
comforted in faith that now a special angel is watching over us.

Truly, life will never be the same without her, but may you keep moving on
thinking that it is what she wants of you to do.

No one can replace a mother so dear. Throughout her life, she has fought every
trial and fear. Now that she is gone, you all sob in tears. Grieve not her children,
for above she is watching with the angels her peers.

Today we remember not only the man who died, but also, he who led an honorable
life. In our hearts are the memories of your father. We may never fathom how
difficult the loss is for you, please be assured that you are in our thoughts, and his
soul in our prayers.

Your fathers vision of life was truly remarkable. He was indeed an inspiration to us
all. He is a great loss to all the people who know him. May his soul rest in peace,
and for you- comfort through the love of God.

They say that the children are supposed to be the one burying their parents, not
the other way around. However, please note that death is inevitable, so are the
circumstances behind it. With an open mind, believe that God has the best
reasons and most surprising ways of taking back an angel He so miss in heaven.

If in the darkness you see stars above, the one that shines the brightest is your
sister shining for love.

I was greatly surprised by the death of your husband. I know that no words can
ever remove the pain, so we offer you our prayers instead, to brighten your path
in this very dark moment.

We do not know how to ease your pain, but we hope that these flowers remind you
of the beauty of life that your husband still wants you to see.

I remember how sweet and loving your grandmother was. She was a woman of
strength and a lively spirit too. Her death is truly a loss. May eternal repose be
granted unto her and may Gods perpetual light shine upon her.

I will miss my best friend dearly, but the friendship we had will never be forgotten
from this day until we meet again. Please accept my condolences.

Death cannot take away our admiration for her. She has been a great student, a
classmate and a friend. Her legacy and the moments we shared will forever be
tattooed in our hearts.

Life has an end as candlelight would fade, but in the heart, memories yielded will
forever be embedded. My deepest Condolences

generosity. We will always remember your (Relationship). He will always be in our
prayers.

sympathy to you and your family.

If one day you will want to see him again, do not look anywhere because you will
never find him. If one day you will miss him, search in your heart, there you can
