Here are a selection of verses that are suitable for our loved ones that are no longer with us, hopefully you can find comfort in these words. These verses are suitable for obituaries, remembrance cards and headstones.


You touched our lives for the briefest of moments, yet you will stay with us forever

Silent thoughts, tears unseen, wish your absence
was only a dream.

Earth has one gentle soul less, Heaven has one special angel more

Although we’ve never breathed your air or gazed into your eyes that doesn’t mean you never were, Angels never die.

This is not goodbye, it’s just time to rest your head.
The moon will be your pillow, the stars above your bed.
Sweet dreams forever, and do not fear, one day we will be together

She was only a little white rosebud
A sweet little flower from birth,
God took her home to Heaven
Before she was soiled on Earth

He has gone to be an angel,
Secure in our Father’s care,
And his dear little feet now patter along
The beautiful streets up there.

Sweet little flower of heavenly birth,
She was too fair to bloom on earth.

Today it would be wonderful
To see you play and smile
But heaven lent you to this world
For just a little while
And in that short but precious time
You brought along much love
And all that love is with you now
In heaven up above.
Your leaving caused so many tears
And such a lot of pain
But God needed one more angel
So he took you back again.

Two little hands are resting A little heart is still A little son we loved is waiting for us just over the hill.

An angel in the book of life wrote down our baby’s birth she whispered as she closed the book “Too beautiful for this earth”

Sweet little flower of Heavenly birth she was too fair to bloom on earth

Angel wings upon the clouds your body softly sleeps Hush now little princess.. No more tears you have to weep.

You were a gift sent from heaven given to us from God above. We didn’t know how much you would teach us about the meaning of true love. For true love sometimes means letting go of someone precious and dear. Sweet (name), we truly do believe that God must have needed you more Perhaps to be an angel now, watching over those of us who loved you from the shining stars above. We miss you more than you can know you can never be replaced… In our hearts and memories forever will be your sweet & innocent sleeping face.

If only the sky could open;
And his dear little face I could see;
Oh, what a wonderful feeling;
I know would come over me.
But he is with the Angels;
Far from sin and pain;
Where Jesus said: “Believe in Me;
And thou shalt see him again”

God’s garden has need of a little flower.
It had grown for a time here below.
But in tender love.
He took it above.
To a more favourable climate to grow.

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.
He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn’t very far.
He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.

In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you pass away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to
lose you, but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God took you home.
