Cherish The Good Memories


Loved Ones In Immediate Family


As They Go We Must Live On


It Is Best To Show Love Always


"I Know You Loved Me So"

Think of the good times shared,

They would not want you to cry,

But feel good because you cared,

Be strong they would want you to try,

They don’t want a sad face,

They may have left with dignity,

Shed tears will leave a trace,

They do not want you with calamity,

They would want no fighting or fussing

Over things left behind,

No anger, no frowns, no cursing

But maintain a spiritual mind,

They would want everyone to get along

And show a simple breed of love,

You have got to hold up and stay strong,

To show the world what you are made of,

Live days up and up,

Take the sweet with the bitter,

One may have left so abrupt

On a day without glitter,

Life goes on with you and others,

That is what they would want you to do,

Be it father, mother, sisters and brothers

Other relatives, friends and pets too,

"Smile for how you appreciated me,

There’s nothing you should regret,

I hope you do see, my loved one,

God's way is the utmost yet."

I can relate for I passed away...

But now, have been reborn,

I died to sin with Christ one day,

And like Him, shinny, new horn,

No more blowing in the old horn of life,

Yielding and blowing in sin,

Had I known then what I know now,

Would not have done it again and again...

Try Not to Sob at or During the Service

I must admit that I've been to enough loved ones' homegoings. I don't cry because I feel more when I don't. I may cry later but for the most part it is easier for other family, friends and guest to celebrate with you. More people would walk up to you if you're not sobbing and comfort you even more. Some people don't like to attend these because they think there will be too much crying and therefore, you may miss out on them. Unfortunately, it makes them feel a bit uncomfortable because they are not crying. However, it all depends on how close you were to the one that has passed.

Being A Loving Family Makes The Loss Easier


Pets Are Loved As Family


The Final Farewell

The final farewell should be a good and memorable one. It is most important to share and think of the good times had although there may be good and bad. Remember and remember the good times because they count toward keeping you glad.

Love Is The Answer To All Things

Love the people whom you associate with in family and abroad. Life's general lesson is to love all people regardless of who they are. We are all God's children whether we realize it or not.

The Love For Christ Should Be Love Above All

In Matthew 10:37 Jesus states His position that He prefers us all to have in relation with Him. He is trying to make a better point here. We can love each other properly by love for Him most because He shows us how to distribute love properly and toward everyone before and after they have passed away. If someone has never loved Jesus then they never knew how to properly love but they can only show feelings and say that they love but not have had it. We do not know how to love properly on our own accord otherwise, there would be no fighting when couples, married or not break up if Jesus was allowed to provide and distribute love in the relationship. This is the best way as well, to get over death of a loved one. God and Christ should be first in us all. This should be clearly understood by everyone.
