Example Epitpahs

He had a kindly word for each and died beloved by all.
His friendship was an inspiration, his love a blessing.
He was beloved in life.
A loving father, tender and kind, what a beautiful memory you left behind.
Resting with those he loved.
His greatest joy was in making others happy.
His joy was in serving others.
God took him home, it was his will, but in our hearts he liveth still.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember him.
O, Lord I put him in thy hands.
His mission on earth fulfilled.
No man is indispensable but some are irreplaceable.
To those who knew and loved him, his memory will never grow old.
His true wealth was in his generous heart. And what endless wealth he did have.
Fond memories linger every day, remembrance keeps him near.
The world's loss was heaven's gain when God took you home.
To live with him and sing in endless morn of light!
His life was gentle, and the elements so mix'd in him, that nature might stand up and say to all the world, "This was a man!"
On him and on his high endeavor the light of praise shall shine forever.
We loved him a lot but God loved him more.
To know him was to love him.
A man greatly beloved.
The world is diminished because he is gone... but it is still a better place because he was here.
Let not a man guard his dignity but let his dignity guard him (Emerson)
He lives with us in memory and will for evermore.
