Happy birthday in heaven quotes and images

Losing someone special from our lives is tragic. Unfortunately even when we begin to come to terms with that loss there are still reminders of them. Birthdays, for example. The birthday of a loved one we’ve lost can be a terribly hard time. Thinking of past celebrations and parties, imagining what we would be doing now if they were still with us, the reaction they had to gifts (both good and bad!) they received. But because it’s hard doesn’t mean we should shy away from celebrating the birthday of a deceased. It can helps us to remember them, and keep them in our hearts. Celebrating or commemorating their lives is important to the families and loved ones of those gone. Which is why many of us love to say ‘happy birthday in heaven’ to the important people we miss having in our lives.

Happy birthday in heaven quotes are a message or sentiment that says happy birthday to someone who has passed away. They can be words on their own or come as part of or alongside an image. These images are usually an appropriate picture – in this case something less celebratory than a usual birthday picture – with the accompanying quote.

  • rest in peace images and quotes

    Life, unfortunately, means there has to be death. It is inevitable, and as much as we hate losing those special people from our lives we have to come to terms with it. But we can find comfort and support in our friends, family and loved ones. However, we still have to find our own way to goodbye to those who pass away. This could be through prayer, visiting their resting place, talking to their family or sending flowers. Nowadays you can even use the internet, email and social media to say your farewells. And we often express our goodbyes and mourn the loss of someone with rest in peace quotes or messages and images.

    A rest in peace message is a short sentence or two that offers condolences, expresses your sadness for someone’s passing or is a fitting quote for the deceased. They can either be words on their own or come alongside or as part of a rest in peace image. These images are usually an appropriate picture, maybe flowers or candles, with the accompanying quote.

    Below you will find a selection of rest in peace pictures. These images are all our own, created by ourselves and are free to be shared on places like Facebook and Twitter. But please credit us if you use them on your website!
