May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear,
just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer

I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss.
My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

We are deeply saddened by your loss.
We will cherish the memories of the times we spent together.

Lean on your friends for strength
Always remember how much your are loved

May the God of comfort help you during this difficult time
May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead

Everything that has a beginning has an ending.
Make your peace with that and all will be well.
The Buddha

If the future seems overwhelming, remember that it comes
One moment at a time.

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

Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
