Example Epitaphs

It is morning on the other side... and all is light and joy.
This was no ordinary life. This was a life well-lived and well-loved, a life that will be deeply missed.
And in the end it is not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest
Peace at last
We live to love you more each day
We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give
And the angels sing
Many things in life will catch your eye but few will catch your heart...Pursue those
From the Tree of Life each leaf must fall, the green, the gold, the great, the small. Each one in God's own time He'll call, with perfect love He gathers all.
In another home, in a happier place, in a beautiful forever.
Nothing that is loved is ever lost... No one who has touched a life, who has brought beauty to the world, is ever truly gone.
Memories, laughter, love...the treasures we keep forever.
Each soul leaves a legacy of love.
A life well-lived leaves behind a beautiful bouquet of memories.
The world is a far lesser place without you
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
Sun of my soul, thou savior dear, it is not night if thou be near
Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven, where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
What we keep in memory is ours unchanged forever
The song is ended by the melody lingers on
Too well loved to ever be forgotten
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile
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
Out of the finite darkness, into the infinite light
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal
If you don't climb the mountain, you can't view the plain
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and for deeds left undone
Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.
Veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered)
Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation
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.
