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 rains fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Thine is the kingdom and power and glory forever. Amen

Hail Mary, Full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death, Amen.
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 tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely Home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder I so calmly trod the valley of the shade? Oh! But Jesus' love illuminated every dark and fearful glade. And He came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread; and with Jesus' arm to lean on could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still; Try to look beyond Earth's shadows, pray to trust our Father's will. There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand; Do it now while life remainith - you shall reset in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you home; Oh, the rapture of the meeting, Oh the joy to see you come.
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 diamonds glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's 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 star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there; I did not die.
God looked around His garden and He 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 only 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 the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine." 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.
My whole life long seems very short, however many years,
I've had a lot of happy times
and cried alot of tears.
I thought I'd be forever young,
but then lo and behold,
I looked into the mirror
and discovered I was old.
But that is how it's meant to be,
beyond this Earth I know,
God has reserved a better place
for you and I to go.
No sickness and no sorrow
will heaven's walls contain,
and every blessed one of us
shall be brand new again.
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, forever.
God saw you getting weary,
He did what he thought best;
He put his arms around you
and whispered "Come and rest."
He opened up His golden gates
on that heartbreaking day,
and with His arms around you,
you gently slipped away.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
A beautiful life that came to an end,
they died as they lived, everyone's friend.
In our hearts a memory will be kept,
of one we loved, and will never forget.
(will substitute he/she for they)
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one, I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day 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 day is done.
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles; I've only gone to rest a little while. 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 you with a smile. Understand in your hearts I've only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took God's hand when I heard the 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 that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah 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 heart and share with me -
God wanted me now, God set me free.
If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say good-bye...
You were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
What it means to lose you
no one will ever know.
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 all were 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.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flowers strewn pathways all our lives through.
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way;
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
May God support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in His mercy, give us safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at last.
Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.
We knew little that morning that God would call your name, in life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, 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're always at 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.
