"A fact of life we all die. But the positive impact you have
on others will be a living legacy."

Never be scared of dying
As God will always be there
No matter what your cares.

Your instinct may be to avoid someone who is experiencing
loss because you fear you'll say the wrong thing.
But loss can be very isolating, and if you stay away, you will
compound the loss and the pain.
Robbie Miller Kaplan, How to Say It When You Don't Know What to Say: Illness & Death
And in a very real sense, our world is changed the moment a loved one
dies because each person we love makes up a precious
and vital piece of our world. At such a challenging time, we need
to be patient with the chaos we are now enduring both inside us
and around us.
Carol Staudacher, A Time to Grieve: Meditations for Healing After the Death of a Loved One
"As an adult, you understand the enormous heartbreak caused by the death
of a loved one.
You have the maturity, reasoning, language development, and network
of friends to help you cope. None of these coping strategies is available
to a grieving child, though."
Victoria Ryan, When Your Grandparent Dies: A Child's Guide to Good Grief
"Death is not a period that ends the great sentence of life, but a comma
that punctuates it to more lofty significance. Death is not a blind alley
that leads the human race into a state of nothingness, but an open
door which leads man into life eternal. Let this daring faith, this
great invincible surmise, be your sustaining power during these trying days."
Martin Luther King Jr., Eulogy for the Martyred Children

open-mindedness and candor,
shows an intense antipathy to facing the greatest of all human questions."
Dinesh D'Souza, Life After Death: The Evidence
"I have formed during the last few years such close relationships
with this best and truest friend of mankind that death's image is not
only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very
soothing and consoling, and I thank my God for graciously
granting me the opportunity... of learning that death is the key
which unlocks the door to our true happiness."
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

unreasonable and foolish to live your entire life never considering

an event that we all know is inevitable. The mortality rate on
earth is 100 percent."

know us the best.
Jeffrey Kluger, The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die for the harder I work
the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.

overshadow life, while knowing and accepting death erases this shadow."

there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

the dying person believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior
and is saved, the countenance on their face is usually very peaceful
looking in the end."

Words of Encouragement |
"When you are young, being older seems like a long way off, but as many of
us know, time passes so quickly, we wonder where the years go.
The older you get the more real the words of Psalm 103: verses 15 and 16 are.
'Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
The wind blows, and we are gone-'
But as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life.
John 3:16 says, 'For this is how God loved the world: He gave
his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.'
Today as we say goodbye, we also celebrate the beginning of a
different journey for our loved one - a journey to eternal life.
I envision eternal life to be like that described in Revelation 21:4
'And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.'"
"IMAGINE HEAVEN . . . imagine understanding it! I've found that people
all over the world will show up to hear someone talk about Heaven.
They will read books about Heaven. Whether they would admit
it or not, everyone wants to know if there is life after death.
After all, the death rate is 100 percent!"
"On your death bed people are not going to say, 'She was a great lawyer.'
At that point, who cares? Rather, we want them to say,
'Wow, she left a legacy and changed so many people through obeying God.'
