Our site began 11 years ago. We have had the same verbiage* at the top of the ‘In Memory’ page since. {I recently renamed ours ‘Life Tributes.’}
I am looking for something new to put there.
If folks would like to share here what they have on their site, or send me a private email, I would greatly appreciate it.
Below is what we have:

A Silent Tear
Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I’m really still there inside your mind
Don’t cry for me now I’m gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I’m in that place that’s filled with love
Known to you all as – up above.

We also renamed our "In Memory" page "Life Tributes" following the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper's retitling of its obituary section in the same manner in the year 2014. It's an uplifting phrase. Here's our verbiage:

"On this page we remember and honor our classmates who have passed away, including those in our class from kindergarten through high school who did not graduate with us. Please click on the classmate's name to see the tribute we have created. Feel free to share your memories by clicking on "Post Comment" below the tribute."

We also have Life Tribute pages for our parents, upper and lower classmen, faculty, staff, and church pastors, with different verbiage for these pages.

When you change In Memory to Life Tribute will In Memory deceased classmates and comments automatically transfer to Life Tribute?

I was simply renaming the page:
Under Admin Functions
Edit site pages
On the In Memory line, select
Edit Link
remove In Memory verbiage
Type in whatever you wish to all your page.
Everything else stays the same.
