General

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Forever Loved, Forever Missed

Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you... I loved you so - 'twas Heaven here with you.

See you at the Rainbow Bridge

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal

Memories are golden, maybe that's true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you

We will love you forever

In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill

Your Paw Prints Will Be On Our Hearts Forever

May God hold you in the palm of his hand as we hold you deep in our hearts

A million times we cried, If love could only have saved you, you would have never died

You came into our lives leaving paw prints on our hearts

Your parting has left me with a void, so I will fill it with remembered joy A friendship shared, your bark, your kiss, these things I too shall miss

May God hold you in the palm of his hand as we hold you deep in our hearts

Farewell in hope and love, in faith, in peace, in prayer, till he whose home is ours above, unite us there

Happy, smiling, always content, loved and respected wherever she went, always so thoughtful, loving and kind a beautiful memory she left behind

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you,and whispered "Come to me" With tearful eyes we watched you,and saw you pass away Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay

A heart of gold stopped beating, two shining eyes at rest God broke our hearts to prove, he only takes the best.
