Our thoughts are ever with you

When a loved one becomes a memory
That memory becomes a treasure.

  MV #10

Your gentle face and patient smile

You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.

You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be.
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.

Your touch, your smile,
Was always so tender,
Today, tomorrow,
We will always remember.

I have kept the faith.
II Timothy 4:7

  MV #28

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you
and whispered "Come to Me".
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
 He only takes the best.

  MV #29

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you,
and whispered "Come to Me".
With tearful eyes we watched you,
we watched you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

  MV #30

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 are all 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.

But when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace, 
Together with the Lord.

  MV #31

Little did we know that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone. 
For part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

 MV #32

If we could have a lifetime wish
and one dream that could come true
We would pray to God with all our
hearts just to see and speak to you
A thousand words won't bring you back
We know because we've tried
and neither will a million tears
We know because we've cried
You�ve left behind our broken hearts
and precious memories too
But we've never wanted memories
We only wanted you

 MV #33

Right now I'm in a different 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

I'm with you when the times are good 
To share a laugh or two, 
And if a tear should start to fall 
... I'll still be there for you

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

  MV #34 

As you hold me close in memory, 
even though we are apart, 
my spirit will live on, 
there within your heart . 
I am with you always.
When you lean on trusted friends 
and their caring hugs enfold you, 
within their loving arms, 
I'll be there to hold you. 
I am with you always.

And beyond the far horizon 
when we'll finally be together, 
where love will be eternal 
and life will last forever. 
I am with you always.

  MV #35

God looked around his garden
and found an empty place
He then looked down upon this earth
and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
get well on earth again
He saw that the road was getting rough
and the hills are hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
and whispered, "Peace be thine"
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home

  MV #36

Although death has separated us physically,
faith and love have bound us eternally.
Though we cannot see you,
we know you are here.
Though we cannot touch you,
we feel the warmth of your smile,
as we begin a new chapter in our lives.


Today we pause to reflect upon
those who have shaped our character,
molded our spirits and touched our hearts.
May the lighting of this candle be a
reminder of the memories we have shared,
a representation of the everlasting
impact you have made upon our lives.

  MV #38

You were a gift sent straight from Heaven.
Given to us from God above.
We didn't know how much you would teach us
About the meaning of true love...
For true love sometimes means letting go
Of someone precious and dear.
That is what we were forced to do...
Although we wanted to keep you here!!!
However, this is quite a selfish wish.
One we know we should ignore...
But, sweet (babies name), we truly do believe
That God must have needed you more...
Perhaps to be an Angel now,
Full of wisdom and love...
Watching over those of us who love you
From the shining stars above.
We miss you more than you can know.
You will never be replaced...
In our hearts and memories forever,
Will be your sweet and innocent sleeping face.

  MV #39

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
Because I am missing her today...

  MV #40

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on
Cherished memories never fade
because one loved is gone
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart
For as long as there is a memory
they live on in our heart

  MV #41

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 a diamond glint of snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 
When you awake in the morning hush, 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
of quiet birds in circling flight. 
I am the soft star shine at night. 
Do not stand by my grave and cry 
I am not there... 
I did not die.

  MV #42

Footsteps In The Sand

One 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 of 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."

 MV #43

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 behind
When life is done.

  MV #44

This day will be a celebration
of the short time you were here.
You will always be remembered
with great love and many tears.
But to only feel pain and sorrow
would not be fair to you.
Your life meant so much more to us,
more than words could say.
You were here so briefly,
I wonder if you knew
all the ways you've touched
our world and our hearts
and everyone who knew you
since the day God called you home.
Now my child, you're an angel
with your heavenly Father above,
we see not only what we've lost
but our capacity of love.
There will always be a big void
in our life and a hole in our
hearts that will never heal.
Our souls will grieve forever.
Will we forget or stop loving you?
No! Not now, not ever.
As this day is upon us,
oh, how our hearts still hurt.
But even as I mourn your death,
we will always celebrate your birth.
It was the happiest day of our lives.

  MV #45

The Lord is my Shepherd: I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the
Paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
Shadow of death. I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me: thy rod and
Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the
Presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil:
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
Me all the days of my life: and I will
Dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

  MV #46

A candle to remember, may it burn ever so bright
As we look to the heavens on this very night.
Beyond the stars, our dear (persons name) soars
Embraced by (her/his) Savior on heaven's shores.
As the angels protect (her/him) and sing (her/his) sweet name
We honor (her/his) life with the glow of this flame.
So we light this candle for our (persons name) tonight
As a symbol of our love and (her/his) eternal life.

  MV #47

For those who are
in our hearts on
our Wedding Day
~ and Always ~
bless us in spirit
as we begin our
new life together

  MV #48

"The Best"

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
and He whispered "Come to Me"
With tearful eyes we watched you.
We watched you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He chose to take the best.
It's lonesome here without you
we miss you more each day.
Life doesn't seem the same
since you have gone away.
When days are sad and lonely
and everything goes wrong,
we seem to hear you whisper
"Cheer Up and Carry On"
Each time we see your picture
you seem to smile and say,
"Don't cry, I'm in God's hands,
we'll meet again someday"

  MV #49

Although we can't see you
We know you are here
Smiling down
Watching over us
As we say "I Do"
Forever in our hearts
Forever in our lives
And so we say our vows
In loving memory of you

 MV #50

The moment that you died
my heart was torn in two,
one side filled with heartache,
the other died with you.
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.
I hold you tightly within my heart
and there you will remain.

 MV #51

To the Child in my Heart

O precious tiny sweet little one you will always be to me,
so perfect, pure and innocent just as you were meant to be.
We dreamed of you and of your life and all that it would be,
we waited and longed for you to come and join our family.
We never had the chance to play, to laugh to rock to wiggle,
we long to hold you, touch you now and listen to you giggle.
I will always be your mother, he'll always be your dad,
you will always be our child, the child that we had.
But now you're gone...but yet you're here,
we'll sense you everywhere,
you are our sorrow and our joy, there's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong,
we'll forget you never.
The child we had, but never had and yet we'll have forever.

 MV #52

I'm Free

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 His call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found 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.

MV #53

 This time tomorrow night you'll be
A thousand miles away from me
Though you will be far away
I'll be dreaming of the day
When you come back home to me
Flying back across the sea
Flying home, no more to part
Flying back to me, sweetheart

Though I know you have to go
I am gonna miss you so
So think of me while we're apart
And I will keep you in my heart
I'll be dreaming of the day
Dreaming of the day you'll say
I'm flying back, no more to part
Flying back to you, sweetheart

The time has come to say goodbye
So leave me now for you must fly
I'll keep dreamin' of the day
Dreamin' of the day you'll say
I'm flying back, no more to part
I'm flying back to you, sweetheart

MV #54

Got a picture of you I carry in my heart,
Close my eyes to see it when the world gets dark,
Got a memory of you I carry in my soul,
I wrap it close around me when the nights get cold,
If you ask me how I'm doing I'd say just fine,
But the truth is, if you could read my mind,
Not a day goes by, that I don't think of you,
After all this time, you're still with me it's true,
Somehow you remain, locked so deep inside,
Not a day goes by...

 MV #55
I lit a candle tonight, in h
onor of you
Remembering your life, and all the times we'd been through.
Such a small little light the candle made
Until I realized how much in darkness it lit the way.
All the tears I've cried in all my grief and pain
What a garden they grew, watered with human rain.
I sometimes can't see beyond the moment, in hopeless despair. 
But then your memory sustains me, in heartaches repair.
I can wait for the tomorrow, when my sorrows ease
Until then I'll light this candle, and let my memories run free.

MV # 56

He/She wasn't a hero known by the world
But a hero he/she was to his little girl/boy.

I knew his/her voice before I could speak
And loved it when he/she would sing me to sleep.

He/She taught us life's lessons of right from wrong
And instilled in us values that we might be strong.

And so through the years like a hero he/she stood
Working to give all that he/she could.

His/Her presence was important and we loved to see him/her smile
For no one in the world could emulate his/her style.

And so dear Dad/Mom my best memory to recall
Is the gift of your presence
The greatest gift of all.

MV # 57

Irish Blessing

May the road
rise up to meet you,
May the wind
be always at your back,
May the sun shine
warm upon your face,
And the rains fall
soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you
in the palm of His hand.

MV # 58 

There is always a face before me,
A voice I would love to hear,
A smile I will always remember,
Of a brother I loved so dear.
Deep in my heart lies a picture,
More precious than silver or gold,
It's a picture of my brother,
Whose memory will never grow old.

MV # 59

An angel in the book of life
Wrote down our baby's birth
She whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for earth."

MV #60

Message from Heaven

I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
I still share your hopes
and all of your cares
I'll even remind you
to please say your prayers
I just want to tell you
you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
above the crowd
Keep trying each moment
to stay in his grace
I came here before you
to help set your place
You don't have to be
perfect all of the time
He forgives you the slip
if you continue to climb
To my family and friends
please be thankful today

I'm still close beside you

in a new special way
As I am now beside Jesus
in the heaven's above
Please take care of each other
I send you my love

MV #61
A Visitor From Heaven

A visitor from heaven If only for awhile
A gift of love to be returned we think of you and smile
A visitor from heaven accompanied by grace
Reminding of a better love and of a better place
With aching hearts and empty arms we send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go but we're so glad you came
We're so glad you came a visitor from heaven
If only for a day we thank Him for the time He gave
And now it's time to say we trust you to the Fathers love
And to His tender care held in the everlasting arms
And we're so glad you're there we're so glad you're there
With breaking hearts and open hands we send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go but we're so glad you came
We're so glad you came

MV #62
For those gone in presence
but here in essence
This light shines as a symbol
of lives and loves remembered

MV #63

The Cord

We are connected, my child and I,
by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.
It's not like the cord that connected us 'till birth,
this cord can't be seen by anyone on earth.
This cord does its work, right from the start,
it bonds us together, attached at the heart.
I know that its there though no one can see,
the invisible cord, from my child to me.
The strength of this cord, it's hard to describe.
it can't be destroyed, it can't be denied.
It's stronger than any cord, man could create,
it withstands the tests, can hold any weight.
And though you are gone, not here with me,
the cord is still there, but no one can see.
It pulls at my heart, I am bruised....I am sore,
but this cord is my lifeline, as never before.
I am thankful that God connected this way,
a mother and a child, death can't take it away! 


I am home in heaven dear ones,
oh so happy and so bright.
There is perfect joy and beauty,
in this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
every restless yearning past.
I am now at peace forever,
safely home in heaven at last.
Dear ones, do not grieve so sorely,
for I love you dearly still.
Try to look beyond earth's shadow,
pray to trust our father's will.
There is work still waiting for you,
so you must not idly stand.
When the work is all completed,
He will gently call you home.
Oh, the rapture of that meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come!


As (her/his) spirit soars in flight
Here is a candle for you to light
And with the flicker of this flame
Say a prayer in (her/his) name


As we present our vows to one another
We know that you are in attendance
Smiling with great pride, strength, and happiness
You will forever be in our hearts
And as we express our vows to one another
And present our "I Do"
We share our day with you
As a dedication to you


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal...
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.


In Loving Memory of
Our departed loved ones
In the Lord's keeping


In Loving Memory of
Our departed loved ones
Gone before us
Now in the Lord's keeping


In Loving Memory
the departed members
of the
Brides 'last name'
Grooms 'last name'
gone before us
now in the Lord's keeping


If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
and only God knows why

My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears will flow
What it meant to love you -
No one can ever know

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today -
A hallowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay



You can shed tears that she/he is gone,
or you can smile because she/he has lived.
You can close your eyes
and pray that she'll/he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes
and see all she/he has left.
Your heart can be empty
because you can't see her/him,
or you can be full of
the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow
and live yesterday, or you
can be happy for tomorrow
because of yesterday.
You can remember her/him
and only that she's/he's gone,
or you can cherish
her/his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back,
or you can do what she'd/he'd want:  

Smile, Open Your Eyes,
Love and Go on.


There Is A Special Angel

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.
He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.
He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.


They whom we love and lose 
are no longer where they were before. 
They are now wherever we are.


On our Wedding Day
we share our happiness
with those who live
in our hearts.

Much of who
we are today
is a reflection
of their love.


Walk me down the aisle Dad
You�re the only one who can
Over these scattered rose petals
To where I'll take his hand

Walk me down the aisle Dad
And fill my heart with peace
Whisper that you�re proud of me
Set my soul at ease

Walk me down the aisle Dad
Though it seems I walk alone
I carry you inside my heart
Life lessons not outgrown

Walk me down the aisle Dad
And dry my endless tears
My life's forever changing
I miss you more each passing year

If God would grant me just one wish
I'd wish for one more day
For you to walk me down the aisle, Daddy
And give your daughter away.

submitted by: Laurie Martz



Stand with me at the aisle Dad
You�re the only one who can
Over these scattered rose petals
To where I'll take her hand

Stand with me at the aisle Dad
And fill my heart with peace
Whisper that you're proud of me
Set my soul at ease

Stand with me at the aisle Dad
Though it seems I stand alone
I carry you inside my heart
Life lessons not outgrown

Stand with me at the aisle Dad
And dry my endless tears
My life's forever changing
I miss you more each passing year

If God would grant me just one wish
I'd wish for one more day
Stand with me at the aisle Daddy
And watch me take my bride today

Tear drops, slow and steady, the pain so real and true,
God took another angel, and that angel, dear, was you.

Angel wings, upon the clouds, your body softly sleeps,
Hush now little princess, no more tears you have to weep.

Memories and little prayers, we all are mourning you,
But we'll celebrate the short life you led; we will never forget you.

I know God will look after you, now you are truly alive,
Your spirit soars beyond the moon, your legacy will survive.

You�re beautiful, you're endless, now stretch your wings and fly,
We love you so, I love you so, but now we say goodbye.

Close your pretty eyes, no more tears, just go and rest,
Let your soul lie peacefully, we know you did your best.

It was your time, so as we cry, go forward that extra mile,
You did what you were sent to do, you made everybody smile

By: Christelle Dardagos in memory of her daughter, Aliyah


We thought of you today
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow too
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday
Its the heartache of losing you
That will never go away


We wish that they could be with us
This very special day
Cause they were like a rush of sun
Before they went away

We lit this candle so that we
Might bring them here awhile
As we remember their bright flame
Their laughter and their smiles

We wish that they could share with us
The happiness we feel
Cause knowing that they knew our joy
Would make it all more real

But even though they are not with us
Their presence is still strong
Cause in their heart we'll always find
The love for which we long


God gives us each a gift of life
To cherish from our birth
He gives us friends and those we love
To share our days on Earth.
He watches us with loving care
And takes us by the hand.
He blesses us with countless joys
And guides the lives we've planned.
Then, when our work on Earth is done,
He calls us to His side,
To live with Him in happiness
Where peace and love abide.


You are not forgotten
Nor will you ever be
No one can fill your vacant place
Looking back with memories
Upon the path you trod
We bless the time we had with you
And leave the rest to God


Sorry I didn't get to stay,
To laugh and let you watch me play.
I know you need me by your side,
I'm sorry that I had to die.
I'm gone but please look up and see,
There's a beautiful God right next to me.
God didn't take me because he was mad,
God didn't take me to make you sad.
But to give us both a chance to be,
A love so precious, can't you see?
Up here no trouble do I see,
And pretty Angels sing to me.
The streets of gold where I play,
You'll come to be with me some day.
Until the day you join me here,
I'll love you deeply and I'll be near.
Each breeze you feel and stars you see,
Brings love and kisses just from me.



Angels Never Die

Don't let them say that we weren't born,
That something stopped your heart
We felt each tender squeeze you gave,
We've loved you from the start.

Although our bodies you can't hold,
It doesn't mean we're gone
This world was worthy, not of us,
God chose that we move on.

We know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face
You have our word, we'll fill your arms,
Someday we will embrace.

You'll hear that it was meant to be,
God doesn't make mistakes
But that won't soften your worst blow,
Or make you heart not ache.

There will come a time, we promise you,
When you will hold our hands,
Stroke our faces and kiss our lips,
And then you'll understand.

Although we've never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes
That doesn't mean you never were,
Angels never die.



When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see,
If the sun should rise
nd find your eyes filled with tears.

I wish so much you wouldn�t cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
e didn�t get to say.

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me, too.

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try and understand,
That Jesus came and called my name
and took me by the hand.

He said my place was ready, in Heaven far above,
And that I have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me I'm right here in your heart.



I wished you were here to give me away
For you to guide me on my day

I feel ever so lost without you around
I hope today I
've made you proud

It's ( Groom's first name ) role now to look after me
In order that at rest you may be

There's always a place for you in my heart
That way we
'll never really be apart

So it's time for me to go my new way
And say;
"Dad, I love you, every day"

Life is not a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely,
in a pretty well preserved body,
with pockets full of money.
But rather to skid in sideways,
totally used up, totally worn out,
totally spent, loudly screaming.....
WOW, what a ride



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 awhile

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 gone to rest a little while



Do not cry for me. Do not burden yourself with sorrow for I am free. 
I lived as free spirited as my soul let me do. 
I tried to touch the lives of so many people and know that you 
will always be a part of me as I will always be a part of you.
I am with you, even though you cannot see me,
I am the one who is standing right behind you, 
whispering in your ear that I am here. 
I will always look after you, and love you and cherish 
the love that you gave me. I know that I will always 
be remembered by you, never forgotten or lost because each time 
you look into the star filled night sky or the newly blooming flowers 
of spring or the ebb of the ocean tide, you will remember me 
and feel the great love that I have for you. 
I always did it my way and could have asked for no more, 
but loved you all along the way, each and everyone of you.
Always remember me.
I love you dearly.
