Any ideas on a small quote or poem for my memorial gift to my family?
These are what they look like.
I am going to have them boxed up and laid out on the memorial table with big pictures framed of the same small pictures in the coasters. I will probably have one open so they know what they look like as well.

What a lovely idea!! I’m not sure if my suggestions fit with your idea, but I thought I’d offer some quotes and sayings that I considered for my ceremony and memorial candle:
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words, and missed beyond measure.
“Though we cannot see them, we know they are here;
Though we cannot touch them, we feel the warmth of their smiles.”
On this special day, we remember all of our loved ones who are not with us. Through the years, their love and laughter have helped to shape our lives. They are here today smiling down on us and watching over us to ensure a wonderful ceremony and a long enduring life together. We love them with all our hearts and they will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
Although death has separated us physically, faith and love have bound us eternally.
Though we cannot see you, we know you are here,
Though we cannot touch you, we feel the warmth of your smile, as we begin our new lives.
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name;
All we have now are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part;
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our hearts.
