Perhaps they are not stars in the sky,
But rather openings where our loved ones
Shine down to let us know they are happy.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
It’s hard to know what to say,
except that you are thought of
In friendship and in sympathy.
Life brings tears,
smiles and memories.
The tears dry,
the smile fades,
but the memories live on forever.
May it comforts you to know that,
Your loved one is safe in God’s care now.
And that friends are praying for you in your time of sorrow.
May words of comfort rest gently upon your heart,
and in time may they become words of healing.
No matter how old we are,
Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know,
But her goodness, her caring and her wisdom live on,
Like a legacy of love that will always be with you.
No time on earth is long enough to share with
Those we love or to prepare our hearts for good-bye.
Our sympathy and warmest thoughts are with you now.
Sending a gentle hug your way,
To comfort you,
And to let you know
that you’re on my mind and in my heart today and always.
Gone from our sight,
but never our memories.
Gone from our touch,
but never our hearts.
