The inscription on any headstone is vital in creating a lasting memory. It is important to capture the character of the loved one being remembered. The choice of words will vary from culture to culture, and between countries. However it is useful to get some ideas on what to say and how to convey this message.
Things to consider:
A headstone should always have a meaningful starting. In most cases it is customary to begin with:
In Loving Memory Of
Entered Into Rest
It is conventional to have a paragraph with a shorty meaningful message from family & friends:
Neither height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Religious quotes from the Bible or religious books are often also quotes:
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
