Sample Eulogies / Tributes to Late Father-in-law
Your love was an indication and part of my overall marital happiness. I did not know you were too fond of me until my children and I spent time with you during my dad’s burial.
You poured your heart into my dearest husband, you told him how much I cared for you and how grateful you were to have me as a daughter-in-law.
I miss your jokes and laughter. As a father-in-law and a father figure, your absence left a deep wound in my heart. It is sad to feel that you are no more with us on earth, but your love and peaceful memories are still our guide.
Your death brought peace, warmth, closure and prosperity to the family. Your endless love will continue to bind us together as a family. One day I believe we will rejoice with you when God calls us home.
Rest In Peace Papa
Your Daughter-in-law,[Enter Name]
I’d chose you to be my dad.
I love you and honor you.
You take all of my sorrows away.
I am happy to call you my dad and
am proud to be your daughter-in-law.
There were times when we disagreed.
But you still meant the world to me.
Your was always pure;
You treated me as your own.
You always took me as your real daughter,
instead of just saying daughter-in-law.
I love you and I always will,
You filled a space that no one will ever replace.
Despite the pain that lingers in the core of my being,
I’ve got to try and let go.
Father I wish you well;
As the tears roll down and as I seek PEACE to stop the PAIN,
I pray for God to grant you peace as well.
Time’s precious, it’s ever changing and waits for no one.
Rest well my beloved father-in-law, rest well.
Though you are dead, I thank God for the privilege He gave me to see you again. I hoped to visit you many times, but nature took its course to take your life. You are gone, but you will never be forgotten. I lost you, but I did not lose you as a model of my husband’s life.
I hope you find eternal peace and salvation you deserve.
Rest In Peace till we meet again.
I know you are guided by the heavenly angels. My family will love you for the rest of our life. I miss your jokes and everything about you. Hugs and kisses today and every day.
Your daughter in-law
He always had a way of making you laugh.My Father-in-law will be forever in our hearts
He is in God’s Hands now.He was a good Husband, Father, Grandfather, and of course Father-in-law.At times I would say I love you and he would never say it back, but I always knew he loved me from his facial expression.My Father-in-law was the best ever and I will miss him very much, but I know he’s not suffering anymore and he’s probably up there telling me to stop crying because I’m with his son(my husband) and everyone he ever loved.God Bless you Papa. I miss you.
Since the day you went away
it’s gotten harder and harder
that we were together.
Then I opened my eyes
to realize you were gone forever.It will slice our heart away
to know you’re not here with us
for the rest of our lives.Family parties and dinners
won’t be the same
’cause you won’t be there.There’s going to be that empty chair
near that dinner table,
where it’s going to be empty and cold.You are a man that gave us
inspiration and courage
to achieve our goals.
You told us our rights from wrong
and most of all you put others before you.You’re not going to be with us,
but you will be forever in our hearts.
It’s going to feel like we are
together, but apart.
Your son-in-law, [Enter name]
A man who cared
A man who shared
A man who knew life
A man who had a beautiful wife.
A man with wonderful childrenThis man was a dad
This man was a grandfather
This man was my father-in-law
This man is gone.And I’ll wait for so long
Until the day I’m with him
With him up there
Where the lights are dim
And where I can show him I’ve always cared.
My wife, your daughter and I, know you can no longer stay with us,
you fought long and hard to be with us.
We know you now watch over and protect us.
Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,
We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us. Rest on Papa.
Thanks for the quality of love and life you gave to my husband. You will always be my special hero. I will get to see you again someday in heaven.
