  1. “Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed, and very dear.”
  2. “Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”
  3. “In the garden of memory, in the palace of dreams, that is where you’ll find me, in the memories of yesterday’s dreams.”
  4. “Though your smile is gone forever, and your hand we cannot touch, we still have so many memories, of the ones we loved so much.”
  5. “The song is over, but the melody lingers on.”
  6. “Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, It’s the heartache of losing you that will never go away.”
  7. “Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.”
  8. “May the winds of heaven blow softly and whisper in your ear, How much we love and miss you and wish that you were here.”
  9. “As long as hearts remember, those we love will remain with us.”
  10. “Love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
