· “Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death”
“There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”
· “A mother is the truest friend we ever have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still wills she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind percepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”
“You can shed tears that she is gone, Or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, Or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday. Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, Be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she’d want. Smile, open your eyes love and go on.”
“Tears are words that the heart can’t express”
“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, “Blessed are they that mourn…”
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~ From a headstone in Ireland
· When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
He, who has gone, so we cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than living man.
