Many of us have a difficult time when a loved one passes away and the need to send a message in remembrance. These messages can be heartfelt and significant in their own way, but many have trouble picking the right words. Here is a list of sample Happy Birthday in Heaven Dad messages to help you out.
#1 Happy birthday in heaven, Dad. You are still here even though you’re not with me physically. Your love has never diminished and your strength is still with me every day. When I feel alone, your wisdom reminds me to stay strong through the hard times. On this day, when you would have been celebrating another year of living, I would like to tell you happy birthday, and let you know how much I love you.
#2 Happy birthday to my amazing father who is celebrating life in heaven today. You were the best dad a child could ask for – loving, devoted, and kind. Though we are apart now, your lessons live on every day, and I celebrate your life with you, too.
#3 Happy birthday in heaven, Dad! I’ll love you for always, no matter how much time passes. You are my hero and my constant source of inspiration. My life is better because you were here. I will celebrate your life every day until we are together again.
#4 Happy birthday in heaven to the greatest father ever! There are not enough words to describe what an amazing person you were and still are, though I know you may be getting tired of hearing it from us. But we’ll never tire of telling you how much we love and miss you and wish that we could see your smiling face again. We hope our lives reflect all the things that made yours so wonderful. No one can ever take your place in our hearts.
#5 Happy birthday in heaven to the man who always amazed me with how much he loved us all! You will always be my idol and role model, no matter how many years have passed since you were taken from this world too soon. I know you must be so proud of what we’ve accomplished in this time without you, but missing you never goes away. Please give us a sign from where you are today so that we can rejoice in knowing even when we cannot see or hear you, you are still with us every day and watching over us like I know you did back on earth while here with us.
#6 Dad, happy birthday! There is nothing about our lives now that you aren’t still a part of. I know you are watching us wherever we go and whatever we do, happy that your children have turned into the adults you always wanted them to be. You were our rock when times got tough, and now that you are gone, all of us feel so lost without your steady hand. We hope you are doing okay where ever it is that your soul resides.
#7 To my dad who has found peace in heaven! There may not be any more birthdays or Father’s Days for you on earth but today I am sending up wishes for peace over your life as well as love! We are doing fine without you Dad but it isn’t easy especially with everyone missing you so much! Sometimes it is hard to think of getting up and going on with my day without you here to smile at me, but somehow I know that you would want me to still live my life even with out you in it. I love and miss you dad!
#8 It has been a long time since you have been gone from this earth, yet I cannot stop thinking about you.

#9 Happy birthday in heaven! You are greatly missed by everyone who loved you here on earth!

#10 Dad, I lost you more than a decade ago. It still amazes me how quickly time passes by, and you are even further from my reach now. But know that on your birthday, as well as every day of the year, I am thinking about you and missing you so much! Happy birthday in heaven to the greatest father on earth!
#11 When we first realized it was going to be difficult to have a relationship with you, we were heartbroken beyond words. However, through your experiences on this earth, I realize how amazing it is that God didn’t want us to miss out on those valuable moments with someone as great as you. Even though life without you is difficult, we will celebrate you and keep your memories alive. Happy birthday in heaven to the best father anyone could ask for!
#12 Dear Dad, I miss you so much. The pain of losing you has not diminished with time, but instead continues to grow stronger as I realize how much I miss sharing my days with you.

Know that even if we try our hardest, we cannot forget you – and we won’t ever stop loving you. Happy birthday!

Know that every time I celebrate a birthday and Christmas and other holidays and events, I’m celebrating them with you. The memories we made while we were here on Earth are the greatest gifts you could have left me with. Thank you for giving so much to me, even when it broke your heart to do so.
#15 When I was young, you taught me how to live life through strength and courage. Even though it hurts me to know that we will no longer get to share moments like Father’s Day or our birthdays together anymore, I know that one day we will be together again. Please watch over me and protect me always, as I will you. Happy birthday!

Enjoy your birthday in heaven today…and always know I love you more than words can say.

Thank you for being the best dad in heaven.

That’s why I know He has blessed me with so many wonderful things.. because I have always put Him first. I love you Dad, and miss you more than words can say.
