Words for Grieving Loved Ones

Written by Taleah de Fontenelle

It can be so hard to find the right thing to say to your loved ones in their time of grief. We hope these help you find the words you're looking for to write on your chosen gift or keepsake for a loved one that has lost someone dear.

 There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains.

 I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart.

 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.

 In life, we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill.

 A rainbow is a promise, of sunshine after rain, of calm after storms, of joy after sadness, of peace after pain, of love after loss.

 Rainbows remind us that even after the darkest clouds, and the fiercest winds, there is still beauty.

 The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart.

 You will always be my sun, my moon and all of my stars.

 A mother's grief is as timeless as her love.

 You are rooted deep in my soul. A part of me forever. In the deepest parts of my heart, there you are.

 Our joys will be greater, our love will be deeper, our life will be fuller because we shared your moment.

"What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us" Helen Keller

 When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.

 You may be gone from my sight, but you are never gone from my heart.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain" Vivian Greene.

"There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart." Mahatma Gandhi

"The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief - but the pain of grief is only a shadow compared with the pain of never risking love" Hillary Stanton Zunin.
