In Memory Verses and the role they play.


What to Say at My Mums Funeral?

Just as the name goes, these Memory Verses are used to honour the deceased. They help in celebrating them and honouring their legacies, and in doing so, the trickle effect of these verses comes to comforting and consoling those left behind, giving them strong reasons to make most of the time they have left.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

The verses are derived from all the bible sections to include the New Testament, Old Testament, and gospel books. This key role can be fully exploited by using them in the following areas following the loss of a loved one:

 In funeral and death notices- the verses can be a good way of delivering the message about the passing on of a dear one, being used either at the end or beginning of the announcement.

 In funeral services- the memory verses can be chosen based on the message to be preached to the mourning audience.

 In memorial services- a particular verse which corresponds to the personality of the deceased or the message we wish to convey can be used during the deceased’s memorial service.

 In funeral programs- this indirectly speaks our thoughts to the audience without us having to talk about the loss of a dear one.

 On funeral invitation cards- in memory verses used in funeral invitation cards eliminates the need for looking for appropriate things to say when seeking the presence of the invitees during the funeral service of a dear one.

 On eulogy and funeral speeches- a memory verse can be used as a basis of a funeral speech or eulogy unto which a significant event in the life of the deceased is attached and expounded to make a meaning of the eulogy.

 On funeral flowers- when used together with the funeral flowers, they will add an in-depth meaning of love and affection for the deceased, atop of the aesthetic meaning of the flowers.

 As sympathy and condolence messages

 On gravestones and headstones

Choosing in memory verses while at the same time someone is grieving may be an uphill task. We wish to honour the memory of the deceased and give them a perfect send-off while giving people the reasons why their demise is such a terrible loss. All these aspects are captured in the in-memory verses.
There is no loss as painful as the one caused by death, these verses try to bridge the gap by comforting the bereaved while celebrating the deceased.

Following the death of my Mother, I decided to make this website. I found it difficult at the time to express the correct words to say at the service. However, I stumbled across an immediate download (available here) that enabled me to find truly memorable words.
