In this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes ~ Benjamin Franklin
As sadistic as it may sound, this quote by Benjamin Franklin aptly captures the inevitability of death. We may try to fight it, postpone it, or delay it. But when the grim reaper knocks on our doors, all we can do is surrender gracefully to its ominous call.
What makes death even more mysterious is the fact that the deceased seem to be at peace with themselves. It’s often the bereaved who’re left struggling to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones. And depending on how close the departed was with those left behind, the ensuing grief and mental trauma may last for years.
Fortunately, there are numerous ways to reconnect with those who left us too soon. One such way is by dedicating to them happy birthday-in-heaven wishes.
Sending someone happy birthday wishes after death is a great way to continue celebrating their life. Posthumous happy birthday wishes also help us appreciate life’s eternity. Although the grief of their loss may continue to drench our eyes in tears, we can find hope in the conviction that their spirits live on.
Here’s a definitive collection of 60 happy birthday wishes to dedicate to special people in your life who have since crossed the proverbial great divide.
