Tombstone Sayings, Gravestone Quotes, Headstone Epitaphs

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

May you find comfort in the arms of an angel.

No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
you were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.

Gone yet not forgotten,
although we are apart,
your spirit lives within me,
forever in my heart.

Real love stories never have endings.

Until we meet again, may God
Hold you in the palm of his hand.

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

Forget me not flowers

Lord, now lettest thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word.
Luke 2:29

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

The heart of him who truly loves is a paradise on earth.

We miss you very much and love you dearly
We know our God is taking care of you
And you are now one of his special angels
You are forever in our hearts
We can't wait to be with you again

Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh
And talk of me as if I were beside you. I loved
You so—‘twas heaven here with you.
