Sayings of Sympathy

Sympathy sayings are always hard. To know exactly what to say to our friends at a time of their loss is one of the hardest things to do. Possibly the following words will help express your condolences to friends who are going through a hard time.

Sayings of sympathy:

May you find comfort in knowing that others are holding you close in their hearts during this difficult time.

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together...there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we're apart...I'll always be with you. Winnie the Pooh

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

Please know you have the support and caring of so many who keep you close in thought and wish you comfort and peace.

There are five things you cannot recover in life:

1. The Stone.......after it's thrown

2. The Word........after it's said

3. The Occasion....after it's missed

4. The Time........after it's gone

5. A Person........after they die Perhaps they are not Stars in the sky buy rather openings where our Loved Ones Shine down to let us know they are happy.

If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven, And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken, No time to say "Goodbye". You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you- No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more, To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today... A hollowed place with in my heart is where you will always stay.

We miss you so much and as everyone in our family says the sound of your laughter is forever embedded in all our hearts.

Watch over us and keep us all safe. We love you forever my Son.

Love, Mom

I know you are out of pain now & enjoying eternal life. It's hard to accept that you are gone but I'm trying to move on. God united us and I now will do so again. You are one of the most precious person this world has ever been blessed with. God is lucky to have you in heaven. And don't forget, for even a day, how very special you are to me. You will always be in my heart & your hand will be in my hand. I love you so much, always have & always will. Love, Barbara

Your death left a heartache that no one can heal. Yet your love left us memories that no one can steal. Thankful for the hope & comfort Jesus gives us to see you again.

Dad, Our Heart

For us, your children, you are our all, our everything, our father, our philosopher king and renaissance man and ideal against which all others are measured. For not abandoning us, for that above all else, we, you children, love you with a ferocity others cannot imagine. We miss you terribly.

6 months ago, the light of our hearts went out...As we struggle with your loss, we try to replace the broken light with your precious memories, some days our light shines bright, some days the light is dim, & some days we have a flicker of light which brings a smile as we fondly remember the happy times with you. But one thing is for sure...You will always be the brightest light shining from the heavens & the light of your love will always be in our hearts.
