I think you should name the star after your Father-In-Law.  That way, all future grandchildren won’t feel bad that their names aren’t associated with the star. 

With that said, you could say that “You will always shine in the heavens” or “You will always hold a place in the heavens” or something like that.  I am not great with quotes.  Sorry.

Sry to hear that…! my condolences. I think that sounds like a fabulous thing to do! Personally I would use his name. Or to be sweet you could use a nickname if he had one?? Something his grandkids called him for short?? Is there a limit on wording?

@Cash000: I agree that you should name the star after your Future Father-In-Law because this prevents the future grandchildren from feeling excluded.  You’re also adopting the star to honour him, not the children.  It’s a really lovely gift. 

As for quotes to use, maybe one of these would work:

“Good friends are like stars…. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there”

“Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.”

Or maybe personalize it like, “Though we may not see you, we will always know you’re there.”

Sorry to hear of your loss, but I think naming the star for him is a wonderful tribute! I thought you might find a quote in one of my favorite songs by… Michael Jackson, Someone in the Dark.

It was written for an E.T. book and album narrated by Michael Jackson in the 80s. I got it as a gift for Christmas and then one of my favorite teachers died o within a few weeks and thus the song has always been special and comforting to me. Here are the lyrics, perhaps something in it will be suitable for you? Good luck!

 

Someone In The Dark

All alone wishing on stars
Waiting for you to find me
One sweet night I knew I would see
A stranger who’d be my friend

When someone in the dark reaches out to you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow

Like it was written in the stars I knew
My friend, my someone in the dark was you

Promise me we’ll always be
Walking the world together
Hand in hand where dreams never end
My star secret friend and me

When someone in the dark reaches out to you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow
Look for the rainbow in the sky

I believe you and I
Could never really say goodbye

Wherever you may be
I’ll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me
Wherever you may be
I’ll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me

Though you’re gone star far away
Each time I see a rainbow
I’ll remember being with you
Smiles coming through my tears

When someone in the dark reaches out for you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow
Look for the rainbow in the sky

I believe you and I
Could never really say goodbye

Wherever you may be
I’ll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me
Wherever you may be
I’ll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me!

I don’t have any star related quotes, but one I always liked is:

“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.”

I have used “heaven holds more than just stars”
