Winnie the Pooh book on desk.

Winnie the Pooh may well be a children’s book. But it’s a book that’s filled with wise sayings and lessons. You might find that a Winnie the Pooh funeral reading helps you to say goodbye to your loved one, whether they’re an adult or child. Below you can find a collection of thoughtful quotes from one of the most loved bears in literature.

Winnie the Pooh funeral quotes

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

This simple sentence is one of the most popular Winnie the Pooh funeral quotes. Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things you can go through. But the reason it’s hard is that we were lucky enough to have such a strong bond with the person in the first place.

“I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.”

If you’re looking for a comforting quote, this could be a good option for you. It reminds us that, though we are parted in this world, we can still remember our loved one in our dreams. If you believe in an afterlife, it also gives hope of being together again one day.

“We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?’ asked Piglet. Even longer,’ Pooh answered.

This is another quote that shows us that death isn’t necessarily the end of a bond with someone near to you. The love that you feel for the person who’s passed will go on.

“A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.”

Everyone knows how important honey is to Winnie the Pooh. This quote can help you share how it can feel to lose a loved one. It’s a simple way to share a sense of emptiness and of something missing.

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”

This can be a difficult quote to read during a funeral. But it does show how people can love each other so much that they’d rather not be the person left behind. This was originally said between Winnie and his friend Piglet, but it can fit any relationship or bond.

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”

The rhyming pattern of this line makes it a good choice for a funeral reading. It’s also short enough to use as a message in a book of remembrance or for a quote for a gravestone.

“Goodbye..? Oh no, please. Can’t we go back to page one and do it all over again?”

When you lose a loved one, it can feel like a story coming to an end. Here, Winnie the Pooh shares a wish to close the book and experience it all over again.

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

Planning a funeral for a child is one of the hardest things to face. Whether your little one was a fan of Pooh bear, or whether you’re simply looking for something that shows your love for them, this quote can help you express yourself.

“Wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the forest, a little boy and his bear will always be playing.”

If you’re looking for a different Winnie the Pooh funeral reading for a child, this quote could be right for you. It’s a good way to finish off a longer reading, or a speech where you share fond memories.

Winnie the Pooh funeral readings

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”

If you’re looking for something comforting to read, this is a good Winnie the Pooh extract for a funeral. It encourages you to be strong and reminds you that your loved one will always be with you, no matter what.

‘How does one become a butterfly?’ Pooh asked pensively. ‘You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar,’ Piglet replied. ‘You mean to die?’ asked Pooh. ‘Yes and no,’ he answered. ‘What looks like you will die, but what’s really you will live on.’”

This conversation between Winnie the Pooh and his best friend Piglet talks about passing on from the life that we know. It tells us that though death is difficult, our loved ones pass on to something even more beautiful. It’s comforting in that it says that things haven’t really come to an end.
