    I recently made a quilt for an aunt, who has livd on the beach most of her life. I Googled a phrase and it came up with the perfect line regarding "life on the Beach" It brought tears to her eyes when she read it

    Oooho, those are good ones for labels. One of those should do it, then if you need it just for a label.

    Sorry for your loss: here is a short quote for you:
    "To live on in the hearts of those we love is not to die."
    (From a tombstone of a distant relative who died around 1915)

    My personal favorite....

    "A loved One is not gone, until they are forgotten;
    And to Live in the Hearts of those left behind is to Live Forever!"

    What We Keep In Memory Is Ours Unchanged Forever

    Treasured Memories Keep You Near

    Loving Memories Last Forever

    At The Going Down Of The Sun, And In The Morning We Will

    Memory Is Life's Sweetest Gift

    To Live In Hearts We Leave Behind Is Not To Die

    Never Will Your Memory Fade

    But The Memories Last Forever

    This Song Is Ended, But The Melody Lingers On

    Too Well Loved To Ever Be Forgotten

    Fond Memories Linger Every Day, Remembrance Keeps them(or him/her) Near

    HAD to add this one: from a Carolina Quilter added to a quilt label she put on a quilt given as a gift:

    "May all of your lifes ups and downs happen underneath this quilt"
    While somewhat bawdy, it was met with appreciation!" ;-)

    FOR JEAN, in your Loss - I THINK THIS IS COMFORTING..

    Forever in My Heart

    Right now I知 in a different place
    And though we seem apart,
    I知 closer than I ever was,
    I知 there inside your heart.

    I知 with you when you greet each day
    And while the sun shines bright,
    I知 there to share the sunsets, too,
    I知 with you every night.

    I知 with you when the times are good
    To share a laugh or two,
    And if a tear should start to fall,
    I知 always there for you.

    And when the day arrives
    That we no longer are apart,
    I値l smile and hold you close to me,
    Forever in my heart.

    I just sent you a PM on memories. I hope it is what you had in mind. I just this moment wrote it. Hope it helps.

    Not sure if this would be longer than you want.

    Memories by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Oft I remember those I have known
    In other days, to whom my heart was lead
    As by a magnet, and who are not dead,
    But absent, and their memories overgrown
    With other thoughts and troubles of my own,
    As graves with grasses are, and at their head
    The stone with moss and lichens so o'er spread,
    Nothing is legible but the name alone.
    And is it so with them? After long years.
    Do they remember me in the same way,
    And is the memory pleasant as to me?
    I fear to ask; yet wherefore are my fears?
    Pleasures, like flowers, may wither and decay,
    And yet the root perennial may be.

    "Memories are like roses in December" I don't know who wrote it but I've always liked this one.

    With every stitch, a memory bound
    into this quilt for you to find.
    Love and warmth, smiles and joy,
    bringing all of that to mind.
