“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.”

Wedding Anniversary Prayer of Blessing
Dear Heavenly Father, We thank you for the grace and blessings you have given this couple during the past______ years of marriage. We celebrate and recall the day when they joined together as partners in life and we thank you for being with them on their daily journey together through life’s ups and downs.
Increase their sense of belonging to each other, just as Jesus says, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one.” (Matthew 19:5,6 NIV)
We thank you that you have freely given them your presence, strength, help and hope. We pray that they will continue to grow in their ability to work together for the good of each other, for the good of their family and for the good of the world.
Fill them with love, forgiveness, patience and trust.
Guide them with the light of your word where it says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is no proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (I Corinthians 13:4-8)
Increase their sense of companionship and friendship. Grant them the ability to laugh at their mistakes and the means to share the simple pleasures of life together.
Enable them to speak the truth in love. Help them to be good listeners. And grant them wisdom and a spirit of cooperation as they make your good plans together on the tough issues and challenges they face.
Surround them with good friends and neighbors. Protect their home. Care for their family. Provide for their needs. Guard their health. And may they enjoy many other anniversaries together. In the name of Christ we pray, Amen.

Death is universal. But, its recognition is unique in relation to individual to individual. However hard we may take a stab at keeping away from death, it’s critical to peruse about it. The more we read about death, the better will be our comprehension of our life. Here are some death anniversary quotes to help you work through the tough times.
To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise: for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know? Socrates (BC 469-BC 399) Greek philosopher of Athens
All that live must die, passing through nature to eternity. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) U.S. poet.
Those who have lived a good life do not fear death, but meet it calmly, and even long for it in the face of great suffering. But those who do not have a peaceful conscience, dread death as though life means nothing but physical torment. The challenge is to live our life so that we will be prepared for death when it comes.

The hour of departure has arrived and we go our ways; I to die, and you to live. Which is better? Only God knows. Socrates (BC 469-BC 399) Greek philosopher of Athens

When it comes to my own turn to lay my weapons down, I shall do so with thankfulness and fatigue, and whatever be my destiny afterward, I shall be glad to lie down with my fathers in honor. It is human at least, if not divine. Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1895) Scottish essayist, poet and novelist

Heartfelt Death Anniversary Message for Friend
There’s a place in my heart which no one can fill, dear friend. I miss you and always will. Your love is always with me. I pray to Lord to bless your soul and give peace and happiness wherever you are.
How big a mess my life is without you, can’t you see? Just like how terribly I am missing you, are you missing me? Instead of being so far apart, together, can we not be?
It takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, and a day to love them, but it takes an entire lifetime to forget them. Missing you friend.
His death is an unfortunate loss for all who were his friends and we appreciated him a lot in our hearts, may he rest peacefully and that God will protect him forever.
Three years ago a great woman left this world, she left a great void for her big heart and kindness that we currently miss in our life. May you rest in peace dear friend.
There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
Life moves on, but memories don’t. You may have gone away but our friendship is right here… in my heart. I miss you.
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
You will always be with us. We love and miss you.
It’s easier to lie, to hide the hurt and emptiness, to smile instead of cry, to act like it’s all a dream and pretend that missing you doesn’t hurt. I will live on your loving memories.
I never went back to being the same person since my great companion left this world, it just comforts me to know that you are resting in peace. I will always remember you because you were a very special friend. May God have her/him in his holy glory.

Death Anniversary Poems
- May you see God’s light on the path ahead when the road you walk is dark. May you always hear, even in your hour of sorrow, the gentle singing of the lark. When times are hard may hardness never turn your heart to stone, may you always remember when the shadows fall—You do not walk alone. ~ Irish Blessing

- What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
- It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.
