1. Suffering and sadness

Even though we allow you to rest,
our heart is full of sadness,
seeing you suffer and not being able to help,
was the one for us greatest pain.


Don't cry,
I have overcome it,
I am free from my torment.
But let me be with you in quiet hours,
many a time.


It is so difficult to
lose a loved one;
it is pleasant to
receive so much sympathy.
We thank you for that from the bottom of our hearts.


You see the sun slowly setting,
and yet you get frightened when it suddenly gets dark.

(Franz Kafka)

2. Gratitude and remembrance

You live twice:
The first time in reality,
the second time in memory.

(Honoré de Balzac)

When the sun of life sets,
then the stars of memory shine.
Memories are small stars,
that shine consolingly
in the darkness of sadness.


With the death of a loved one, you lose a lot.
But never
the time spent with them.


Don't cry because it's over.
Laugh because it was beautiful.


If you are sad,
then look into your heart
and you will realize that
you are crying for what
made you happy.

(Khalil Gibran)

Bright days.
Don't cry,
that they are over.
that they have been.


Whenever we talk about you,
rays of sunshine
fall into our souls.


The most beautiful monument
that a person can receive
is in the hearts of his fellow human beings.

(Albert Schweitzer)

3. lasting connection

Sometimes you are in my dreams,
often in my thoughts,
and always in my heart.
If you are looking for me,
look for me in your hearts.< br>If I have found a place to stay there,
I will always be with you.

(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

The greatest secret is life.
The deepest secret is eternity.
The most beautiful secret is life.
The deepest secret is eternity.< br>The most beautiful secret is love.

Life ends,
love doesn't.


There is a land of the living
and a land of the gone,
the bridge between them is love.


Death is the boundary stone
of life, not of love.


You are no longer where you were,
but you are everywhere
where we are.


Amoi bless us again.
("We'll see each other again someday.")

(Liedtitel von Andreas Gabalier)

4. Otherworldly reality

When I was born,
you laughed and I cried.
Now I laugh and you cry.


You who have loved me,
do not look at the life
that I have ended,
but at what I am beginning.


You didn't lose me,
I just went ahead of you.


You are grieving now
but don't cry.
I'm going where
where I'll see the ones I loved again.
And I'll wait for the
those I love.


I'm not dead,
I'm just changing rooms,


I loved being
in the woods and meadows and fields,
now I have gone home,
to the creator of nature.

always, even to the end of the world.

Death is the gateway to light
at the end of a life that has become difficult.

(J. v. Eichendorff)

Come on, big black bird,
Now it's a good time!
The others in the room are fast asleep.
But be very quiet,
The sister can't hear us.
Please, get me away from there!
And then we fly up,
in the middle of the sky.
In a new time,
In a new world.
And I'll sing,
I'll laugh,
I'll scream "that's not possible."
I'll suddenly get it
what everything is about.

that the road was too LONG,
the mountain was too STEEP
and breathing was too HARD,

around our mother and Grandma
and said:
