Headstone Quotes and Epitaphs

Gone, but not forgotten

In Loving Memory of

Entered into rest

Until we meet again

To live in the hearts of those we love is never to die

I shall but love thee better after death

Forever in our hearts

Always in our hearts

At rest with God . Rest in Peace

Too well loved to ever be forgotten

Asleep in Jesus

Home with God, which is far better

Ours for a little while, with Jesus forever

Everlasting life through Christ

Beloved of the Lord

The song is ended, but the melody lingers on

Rest in thine, sweet memory ours

Sweetly sleeping

Loving memories last forever

Hasten, oh blessed hour or reunion

Not lost to memory! Not lost to love! but gone to our Father’s house above

Step softly, a dream lies buried here

Your love will light my way, your memory will ever be with me

What we keep in memory is ours unchanged forever

Death is only a shadow across the path to heaven

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember them

He longest lives who most to others gives, himself forgetting

May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace

He gave thee, He took thee, and He will restore thee

Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal

I think of you as watching from

a time and space beyond the sky,

a place where we might someday come

May the journey on your next adventure be as joy-filled

as your time with us. See you soon!

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

Life is not measured

By the number of breaths we take,

But by the moments

That take our breath away


Behold my friends as you pass by

As you are now, so once was I

As I am now, soon you shall be

Give thyself to God and follow me


The kiss of the sun for pardon,

The song of the birds for mirth,

One’s nearer God’s heart in a garden,

Than anywhere else on earth


Your presence is a gift to the world,

You’re unique and one of a kind.


Your life can be what you want it to be

Take it one day at a time.

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

Shed not for her the bitter tear

Nor give the heart to vain regret

Tis but mere ashes that lie here

The gem that filled it sparkles yet


Beneath this simple stone

That marks his resting place

Our precious darling sleeps alone


To the world you may have just been somebody,

but to all of us you were the world.

Thank you for the time you spent here!

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.


I pray you can see me now and be proud of what

I have become because of your example, but most

of all I thank you because you loved me so much


Don’t mourn my loss, whatever you do

My leaving brings you closer to the loved ones

I have left behind and all the joys the future holds


Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
