Sympathy Quotes

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."

"In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing. "

"While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil. "

"Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight."

May you find comfort
in God’s love, peace
in His faithfulness

Praying that happy memories will soon replace the sadness in your heart.

"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice but, for those who love time is eternity." -- Henry Van Dyke

Because you are so dear a friend,
your cares are my cares, too
And so as sorrow fills your heart,
my heart goes out to you,
And though my words cannot begin
to ease the loss you bear,
I only hope it helps, somehow,
to know how much I care.

For each thorn, there's a rosebud...
for each twilight — a dawn...
for each trial — the strength to carry on,
For each stormcloud — a rainbow...
for each shadow — the sun...
for each parting — sweet memories
when sorrow is done.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cherished memories are the gifts
That help to keep us near
To those who live within our hearts
When they're no longer here.

It's sad when those whom we care for, leave,
For them, no question of choice.
And deep down inside, we silently grieve
For a still-remembered voice.
Life must go on; it is all that remains
For those left on earth below;
Try to smile, dry your tears, have courage…
You know they would wish it so.

Memories keep the one you loved close to you in spirit and thought and always in your heart.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

Eskimo Legend

they are not
stars in the sky,
But rather
where our
loved ones
shine down to
let us know
they are happy.

The tide recedes but leaves behind
Bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land.
The music stops, and yet it echos on
In sweet refrains
For every joy that passes
Something beautiful remains.

Friends are needed both for joy and for sorrow. -Samuel Peterson
