Sample Tributes / Eulogies to Late Grandmother
You were by my side, my first best friend.
I never expressed it when you were here
Though my love and admiration were sincere.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.
You taught me more than I ever knew.
You gave me reason to continue the fight,
Saying a better day comes after the night.
Where would I be were you not around?
Likely adrift in the sea of life, drowned.
I am forever grateful for your love,
And I know you’re looking down from above.
and time will always pass,
but every memory I have of you
will definitely always last.I like to smile when I think of you.
I try not to be sad.
It’s pretty easy to do
with all the good times that we’ve had.But sometimes I can’t help it,
and memories leak out of my eyes,
and I quickly try to brush them away.
I know you wouldn’t want me to cry.
I don’t know how it’s possible,
but I love you more now than I did then,
and I really cannot wait until
the day that I see you again.
Because, Grandma, I know I would take hold of you
and never ever let you go.
Every day that passes by
I miss you more and more.
She departed this life and is gone to stay.
There was no struggle, but with great ease
she closed her eyes and took her leave.My Grandma was one sweet, loving soul.
I had no doubt where she would go.
We all knew Grandma walked with God
and bound for heaven to get her reward.No way we can know the lives she touched
because that gracious soul gave so much.
She would share her flour, sugar or meal
or say a prayer to get your body healed.
We had many talks as she sipped her tea.
She shared years of wisdom with me.
She taught me family values and to be kind,
but she always had Jesus on her mind.
“You need the Lord,” is what she would say.
“You can’t make it in this world no other way.”
Then grandma kneeled and bowed her head
and a stirring prayer she always said.
“Lord Jesus, I want to talk to you awhile
to ask you please bless this precious child.”
Then she asked the Lord to watch over me
and to please make me what I ought to be.
My life is shaped by grandma’s prayers,
and I’m thankful for her being there.
Her love was evident in so many ways
in her kind words and on her smiling face.
Grandma’s leaving is heaven’s gain,
but one day I will see her again.
Because the Jesus that Grandma knew,
she made sure I got to know too.
Now you’re sharing it up above.
You had many things to say,
All in a caring way.
You always saw good in everyone,
No matter what they’ve done.
You were always the one we could all lean on,
Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the strength of the family.
Now we must let you rest calmly.
We say goodbye,
As tears roll down our eyes.
I know your place in heaven has a good view.
You’re telling God
I need to keep an eye on a few.
I know you will always be in our hearts and minds.
I must go, but I’ll never forget you’re one of a kind
so he put his arms around you and whispered,
“Come to Me”
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine,
And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful grandmother,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.
Have never been so clear.
All the lessons that you taught me
Still remain right here.
I am left here wishing
To hear your voice one last time,
Once more to hear you sing
That I am your sunshine.
You told me it would be all right,
But I feel that isn’t true.
The only thing to make this better
Is if I was there with you.
I know this isn’t possible,
But it’s hard to think it so.
I know you’re now not suffering,
But I hate to see you go.
I’d let you wear that fanny pack,
I swear I wouldn’t care,
Just to have you back one more time,
Just to have you there.
I’d give a million dollars,
To read one last email,
To decode that secret message
About treasures from a sale.
I know the pain will slowly leave,
And your memories will stay,
Your time with us was special,
And it is often replayed.
My sunshine was taken,
Now my skies are left grey.
Oh, the things that I would give
For only one more day.
You were more than just a Grandma,
You were my best friend.
My life has changed forever,
But I’ll still love you ’til the end.
I loved the way she’d hold my hand,
and when my troubles they did swarm,
I’d go to her; her heart was warm.I loved the way she sang always,
but now her face is out of gaze.
I know she’s in a better place,
and now she sees God face to face.It won’t be the same now that she’s gone,
and I’ll find it hard to carry on.
Now she’s soaring high above,
she spreads her wings out like a dove.
She sways above to angel voices.
Now in heaven, she rejoices.
She’s in a place with lots of care,
and I would like to see her there.
So keep your grandmas close to you,
because you know you need them too,
so make sure you spend time together.
Grandmas do not last forever.
Tears fall from my eyes feeling so blue
Why did you leave me all alone
You got your wings and off you have flownTo a better place of light and love
The perfect garden in Gods sky above
Where once in a while when I feel low
You will peek in on me and watch me growBecause now I am older I am able to see
God didn’t take you away from me
He just made you an angel with wings to fly
To look after all the children up in the sky
You’re the perfect one for the job
I’ve wiped my tears, no longer do I sob
Now I sit here and think about the days
That I sing, talk and shout your praise
Never will I forget my lovely dear Grandma
And no more tears will I shed
Because now I know she’s in a better place
And I keep her alive in my heart and my head
I walked over and hugged you all the time.
You always made me smile and always had stories to tell.
I loved sitting with you every day and listening to the memories you had to share.
You showed us that life can’t be all that bad.
There is always a light at the end of a tunnel.
You were so strong.
You had faith in us all.
You had great spirit, even if the day was dull.
You weren’t just my Nan.
You were my best friend.
I know you had to go.
Now I feel I’m alone,
but I know you’re close.
When I feel the warmth at night, I know it’s you giving me a good night kiss.
When I feel my chest getting tight, I know that’s you giving me a big hug.
When I feel the wind brush through my hair,
I know you’re whispering hello to me.
When I see the sun shine, I know you’re happy.
When I see that bright star, I know that’s you watching us all and smiling.
Now a beautiful angel watching over us all,
we pray to you each night.
Losing you, Grandma, broke my heart, and every day, without a doubt,
I think of you and shed a little tear, for a Grandma I loved so dear.
No longer here on earth, but in the heavens aboveOh how I’ll miss your smile and your laughter so big and full of life.
Now you sore in the sky you’re an angel so high
You are now with our maker; tell me what is he like?Are your day’s filled with song and praise,
do you sway to the music that angel harps play?
Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
How you will be missed, but never forgotten
I shall remember your scent, your voice and your every feature.
After all you were one of my teachers
You’ve taught me so much and so many life lessons
Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
Rest now; ever so peaceful in the heavens above
Because I have nothing else to do.
I think about you dearly,
It is seen very clearly
You meant so much to me.
Teaching me to be everything I can be.
I treasure every moment we have had
And I am so glad
For all the things that I have learned from you
Teaching me always to be true
Teaching me wrong from right
Helping me to shine bright
Teaching me how to cook
Telling me to read a book
Teaching me to be strong
And not worry when things go wrong
With all the problems, you helped me get through
I am who I am because of you
I am going to miss you each and every day
But the memories I have had with you will stay
I am going to miss not talking to you on the phone
And having you listen to me moan
I am going to miss our long talks
And the times we went for walks
I am going to miss not holding you in my arms
And all of your charms
But I know you will be here
Each and every year
Until the time we will meet again
And be together till the endI love you Grandma Jo.
My grandma, my pal, my friend, my hero
you were in my life for the longest time
and now your gone all in a blink of an eye
I am so confused, I have no idea why
this had to happen to you
but I guess cancer takes some of the best
and we all have to die someday
I just wish it weren’t so soon
I need to know that you’re okay and you’re up there with God
watching over me still witnessing me grow
I need some sort of sign, I need to know
I guess the pain and suffering is all done
I miss you grandma.
I just need one more day with you so I can tell you how much I love and miss you.
grandma I love you with all my heart.
and I know that you’re up there watching over me.
I remember how you told me everything,
no matter what happens, will be okay.
I love you grandma, rest in peace.
I’ll be seeing you again one day.
