order to experience our death,
so that he could break the power of death.
Brian Simmons, Jeremy Bouma, Grace and Hope
A brush with death always helps us to live our lives better.
Life and Death Quotes

it is still alive and will be seeing everyone who is meaningful to them again.
Michael Newton, Destiny of Souls

Who gave up your lives
For people like me
It's a shame that you died.
Cody Lynch, My Thoughts on Remembrance Day
Veterans Day Poems
We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.
Why mourn we, then, for those who cross
The intervening river?
Although to us a heavy loss,
To them is joy forever.
Henry Reed Conant, Parting
No one wants to leave the planet in a state of discord with his or her family.

Will you be ready?
David Brady, Serenity
Quote of The Day
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
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
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
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.
Martin Luther King Jr., Eulogy for the Martyred Children
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because
Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
I've told my children that when I die, to release balloons in the sky to celebrate that I graduated. For me, death is a graduation.
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
Men fear death as children fear to go into the dark and as that natural
fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.
You, too, can gain the insight and understanding you need to find
something good in the sadness and pain of losing someone you care about.
Maggie Callanan; Patricia Kelley, Final Gifts
"Life after death is the elephant in the living room, the one that we are
not supposed to notice. Our culture, which prides itself on its
open-mindedness and candor,
shows an intense antipathy to facing the greatest of all human questions."
Dinesh D'Souza, Life After Death
But you never really know how your words or your actions will
affect your children. What will they say about you when you're gone?
What moment will they remember?
What will they tell their children about you?
Tim Russert, Wisdom of Our Fathers
If we don't know Jesus, we will fear death and its sting - and we should.

to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.

G B Woodcock, One with Christ | Series Two

The choice is up to you.
Wayne Dyer, Your Erroneous Zones
"Further complicating grandparents' grief is the horrible reality that
a young person died before they did. Children aren't supposed to die
before their parents,
and they certainly are not supposed to die before their grandparents".
Alan D. Wolfelt, Healing a Grandparent's Grieving Heart
Never stop believing
Never be scared of dying
As God will always be there
No matter what your cares.

from our lives."

Quotes about Overcoming
We encourage you to fast-forward to the end of your life and
ask this question: "What will family, friends, and colleagues say when
I am dead?" It might sound morbid, but it's extremely useful.
Michael Hyatt; Daniel Harkavy, Living Forward
"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
It is as natural to die as it is to be born.
Famous Quotes about Life

unreasonable and foolish to live your entire life never considering
and being unprepared for
an event that we all know is inevitable. The mortality rate on
earth is 100 percent."
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
Graves cannot contain my spirit; death is not the end of time,
Though my body turns to ashes, I will rest in peace sublime.
Greta Zwaan, Come With Me To Glory

with us the longest, loved us the hardest, and, by a wide margin,
know us the best.

looking in the end."
