Verses of Comfort & Sympathy
in Memory of Loved Ones


Bare cottonwood trees against blue sky with white clouds in early spring.

Bare cottonwood trees and blue sky in early spring.


Funeral poems remind us that life is very short, compared to eternity. Death comes to every one of us. It can come at any time.

This is one of the most difficult times of mourning, sorrow, and tears we will ever face.

We cannot know for certain the destiny of one who dies, until we ourselves enter eternity, because God alone is the judge, and searcher of hearts.

By ourselves, we don't know what words to say to those in grief. But God can give us his help and inspiration.

I hope these poems remind us of our destiny, and help keep us on the path to Heaven, our eternal home.


Funeral Poems for Mom

We are indebted to our mothers for the life we have here on earth. Losing a mother can be very difficult, no matter what age.

My own mother, of blessed memory, died at the age of 46 when I was 21.

I started one of these poems on Mothers Day, and finished it the next day - her own birthday.


The Best Comfort

We should want the very best for our loved ones in the next life.

We're often at a loss for words for those left behind. What words could adequately express sorrow for deep loss and lasting grief?

How can we begin to comfort someone, when the best comfort comes from God, who understands everything?

Maybe we can only be with our loved one or friend in silence, even for a moment ... or a bit longer.

And the best thing to do? We can always pray ... while reflecting on our eternal destiny and the importance of spending our entire life in preparation for dying well, so as to spend all eternity in heaven.

Let us never give up hope, especially the heavenly hope we find in our best friend and comforter.

Thank your stars!
