Spiritual Sentiments

Religious epitaphs are some of the most popular gravestone engravings. Many choose sacred verses to express bereavement, but spiritual phrases are great alternatives when headstone space is limited.

  • A Life that touched the hearts of others lives on forever
  • Asleep in Jesus
  • At rest in Heaven
  • In God’s care
  • Love is eternal
  • Meet me in Heaven
  • My trust is in God


Traditional Epitaphs

Emotional engravings are a reliable way to show how much the deceased meant to the living. When someone dies on duty doing what they love, it can also be special to include their career.

  • Always remembered
  • Always in our hearts
  • Gone but not forgotten
  • In loving memory
  • Rest in peace
  • Till we meet again


Unconventional Epitaphs

When it comes to larger than life personalities, you can always choose an alternative way to commemorate the happy memories. Here are just a few of our favorite hobby-oriented headstone sayings:
