Sample Eulogies To Deceased Mother
Mother you were the truest, dearest, more than a mother to me. I called you a friend, sister, cousin and also dad when I lost dad. You stood alone for 20 years after dad passed on, and only God knows the inner strength you had to come through with my siblings and I.
You were precious a gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise I had an angel beside me.
Mother you heard God’s whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave me, I saw how you fought with your illness. you loved me sooo much that you held on tight, until all your strength was gone, and you could no longer hold on. Finally you gave your hand to God and slipped away quietly without telling us bye.
I will forever love and adore you mom for everything you taught us in life. Your death took away joy from our lives but we will hold on to the beautiful memories of times spent with you.
when you were here with me?
When you closed your eyes and soared
to the Heavens I could hear the
faint flutter of you wings as you left.
Your body no longer on this side
your spirit here eternally I see your halo shine.
I close my eyes and see the multi-colored wings
surround me in my saddest moments and my happiest times.
Mother my angel God has given you your assignment
always my mother forever my angel.
You fly into my dreams and when I am asleep
I feel your wings brush against my face wiping away
the tears I shed since I can no longer hold
you in my arms but in my heart.
You earned those wings dear mother
and you will always be me angel eternal. Adieu Mum!
She breathed out the life that she had lived
and rested in the stillness
The heartbeat that had laid alongside mine
since my conception….stopped.
The spark in blue grey eyes went out.
Cold and still.
No warmth of mine could warm her
I held her close…and told her things she already knew.There is a flame in my chest, un-noticed until now
the spark of her, the still intensity of her burns in me.
Some unions are forever.
I miss you mum and will love you till my dying days. Goodbye!
Not a day goes by that you are not missed. I thought it might get easier as time went by, but it doesn’t. I don’t know how to come to terms with reality but I know that you for sure are the best mother a son could ask for in so many ways.
You saw beauty in everything in life, you were a very simple-minded human being. You were the best person morally that I’ve ever known. You taught us how to live life to the fullest. You made everything so much fun as a kid growing up, and taught us how to face the world we were going to live in.
Not a day goes by that I don’t cry my eyes out because I miss you so much. I feel so alone I just want to talk to you one more time. Adieu Mum!!
I love you with everything I am. When you left this world on that faithful day, I not only loss my mother. I loss my friend, my ally, my supporter, my advisor, my light at the end of the tunnel when my days always seemed dark. I turned to you, I had no one else but you. Your selfless acts of kindness, your intuitive advice, your love for family. What a loving being you are..I grapple with the Lord in his decision to take you. How could this have happened when I promised to care for you and did…When I was at the hospital every single day for 5 months to give you all the support and advocating you needed. I held up my end of the bargain. But it seems like I was bargaining only with myself because God took you despite my desperate plea. Perhaps one day, I will understand…for my sanity and my own life I hope that day comes sooner than later. Until we meet again…I love you with every single part of my being…you were and always will be, the gold standard.
My Mom was able to come into the operating room and be there by my side holding my hand while my son was delivered. I remember she was brave and tried to look over the curtain to see what was going on but sat down quickly and took my hand again. I remember the joy and excitement on her face when my son was delivered. She stood over the nurse and watched with patience while they cleaned him up. This was her first Grandson and she wasn’t going to miss anything.
She sat by my side the whole time while I was recovering, even though the hour was late and she had to work the next day. She held my hand and talked to me and told me how beautiful my son was and how proud she was of me.
My Mom was always there for me no matter how big or how small. She was always there with her warm touch. I love you Mom. I know you are in a better place, but my heart bleeds that you are no more.
A mother’s heart is the child’s classroom. I thank God everyday for what mom taught me through the years. She was the poster child of a godly mother. This tribute to my late mother can’t even express the smallest love and gratitude I have for her. Mom taught me to love God. She taught me endurance. Through her example, we learnt to push on even when things seemed impossible.
Mother’s devotion to God and love for my dad was absolute. When dad stopped pastoring in his ministry, we went through difficult times for a few years. My mother never once complained. From this experience, we learned a valuable lesson–there is always a reward for those who endure hardships and obey God (2 Timothy 2:3).
Mom and dad purposed to do the will of God. They obeyed without question and at whatever cost. This taught me to always listen to the word of God no matter the circumstances. Mother always insisted on never magnifying the sacrifice. She taught us to always focus on God’s grace and not the sacrifice. She would always say, “It’s not as bad as it looks”. Mom also taught me about faithfulness. Over the years I have tried to emulate her the best way I could. If you start anything, always make sure to complete it. She also emphasized on the importance of keeping your word.
She used to pray a lot. Dad travelled frequently preaching the gospel while mom stayed at home with us. She spent countless lonely hours taking on the challenges of raising us and making tough decisions by herself. We always wished dad could be home more often. Mother usually told us to look to God. God who had called dad into ministry was faithful enough to take care of us.
My mother also taught me to take care of others and the difference between right and wrong. She taught me to make the right decisions and reminded me about God’s kindness and love for me. While many people knew my dad, my mom was only known to a few. She believed that by teaching me all these things, she would never have to shed a tear over a wayward son. While I have made many mistakes during the course of my life, I have always come back to God for forgiveness. I could hear my mother’s words ringing in my ear whenever I engage in things that I shouldn’t have.
These are some of the things I have learnt from mom. She lives in our hearts forever. Adieu Mom.
I miss you Mum. I will always miss you. I think about you so much. I know you are with Dad now and can walk and dance. There is no more of that wheelchair, confusion and memory care glorified nursing home. I enjoyed taking you out from there and so sorry when you couldn’t walk anymore. I want to believe they cared for you well. I tried to make sure of it. I hope it helped. I know you made the best of it. I just hated seeing you waste away and get so thin. Please let me know you are near. Please send me signs. You Know now my thought and heart even better
I love you and will forever hold you in my heart..
I love you dearly mum.. I am completely heartbroken that you are gone forever, it’s so hard to face reality. Goodbye mum. My heart bleeds.
R.I.P To My Wonderful and Self- Independent Mother, May You rest In God’s grace, Hopefully one day, I will get to see you again.Mommy, I will do best to honor your memory and be a good man, I will never forget the lessons you taught me.
A mother’s love must always find something to do for its beloved child. As long as a mother can take care of, caress, or comfort then she is capable of bearing her sadness. She will put aside the thoughts of “what ifs”, of “blankness”, and “despair” that may follow by her occupation in doing something practical in the present. This safeguards her from collapsing entirely. This made my mother eager to dedicate her passion to motherhood. In addition, how brave it made her! Ah, a mother’s love, what will it not dare or do?
My mother was not skilled with pen and paper; yet, her life and legacy, her passion for life, her compassion for others, and her loyalty to her faith, her self-sacrifice, and an uncomplaining spirit remains etched with a platinum pen with an exquisite diamond tip and a steady flow of spectrum light on the souls of those she loved, touched, and served. I myself am forever grateful for the influence that Her love, wisdom, amity, discipline and guidance had in my life.
Although she was unknown by the world except in the narrow circles of her home, labor, faith, and friendships; yet, she is well renowned in the sight of the All-Seeing One of Eternity. Hence, in the future, when the Supreme Majesty Who Sees and Knows All open the Sacred Annals, He will remember her, and He will commend her for her steadfast devotion. Adieu Mother!! I miss you.
It will not be a pansy heaven nor
a fragile heaven of lilies-of-the-valley but
it will be a heaven of black red roses my father will be
(deep like a rose tall like a rose)
standing near my (swaying over her silent) with eyes which are really petals and see
nothing with the face of a poet really which
is a flower and not a face with hands which whisper
This is my beloved my
(suddenly in sunlight he will bow,
and the whole garden will bow)
“My mum would sit down and listen to anything that people were saying. She had time for anyone and everyone.
“Anyone would wish for a friend like my mum.
“I hope life is better where you are now my beautiful angel. I miss you more than you know and my heart aches everytime i remeber you are gone. Goodbye Mum. Until we meet to part no more.
You passed on just too soon. Most times it feels like it was yesterday, and other times it feels like it’s been hundreds of years since I last saw your warm and bubbly face.I haven’t the slightest clue where you could be in the afterlife, but I really wish I could see you again. The only thing I remember is your persistence and fiery attitude. As a single mother, you provided everything we needed. I long for your warm hugs every time my heart is broken. I often wish you could come back and see my beautiful sister. She’s strong, just like you. She’s overcome so much since you left. I wish you could see my son.The only memory I hold is the withering photographs and the faint memories. I remember getting into trouble for giving my little brother wedgies, or for eating too much candy. I often wonder what lessons you’d have taught me if you were still around. Could I have missed out on something that others get from their mothers? I’ll never know.I wish i had the chance to say goodbye – one last hug. I wish your life had been easier. You had to endure a lot for us. But you’d have been proud of me on my college graduation. I wish you were around on my wedding day, when I walked down the aisle.I hope you are in a better place looking down on us and nodding your head in approval. I want to tell you and the world you’ll always be in our hearts forever. I love you mom!!
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away. Adieu Mum!
To the world you were one person, but to me you were the world. You didn’t have much, but we always felt like we had everything. You didn’t leave millions in your bank account, but you left a legacy worth much more.
You taught me love, patience and endurance. You taught me how to pray and led by example. You praised me whenever I did good and pointed out my mistakes with that gentle voice. You encouraged me to work hard in school and taught me how to read and write. I still remember your voice as you read me bedtime stories. I think about you every day.
I was devastated when you feel ill. In a matter of days, the smile on your face disappeared and was replaced by gloom. I remember I couldn’t leave your side for one second.
I will never forget that fateful Sunday afternoon when you said goodbye forever. The cruel hand of death had snatched you away from us. We miss you every day. I thank God for you and cherish the memories we made. I love you.
