Time to Say Goodbye

 12/1990 ~ 6/27/2010

While you could not speak the words,
I could hear the whispers of your voice.
Telling me it was time to go,
to celebrate your life and rejoice.

You decided it was time to go and
find your resting ground.
You lay down your tired head and
went without a sound.

In my heart I know you loved me,
as much as I loved you.
I pray you've found the peace,
that will help to see me through.

I thank you for all the joy in my life and
the smiles you've brought to me.
May God guide you on your journey and
may your spirit always run free.

It is so hard to loose a pet who has become such a big part of your family, for us it was our cat Misty who we had for 19 years.  We adopted Misty from North Shore Animal League back in January of 1991 along with her sister Mandee (who passed on 4/27/2009 - See picture below) exactally 1 year and two months to the day.  They were there even before our children were born.  We went through so many things together.  

12/1990 ~ 4/27/2009
Now I miss walking by their special spots and not seeing them curled up sleeping,  or they way they used to rub against my leg, purr to say hello or can I have a little treat or the way the used to lay at the bottom of my feet while I slept at night.  Their dishes are empty and now put away.  I am left now with only pictures and memories that I will forever cherish.  You loved so unconditionally in every way.  We will love and miss you always.

Lord, you have embraced a good friend and loving companion.
While we mourn what we have lost, we do celebrate what we had...
and in saying goodbye, we renew our pledge to love and care
for any creature you entrust to us for its time of life.
Thank you, Lord, for the joy this loved one gave us and for making it
possible for us to have made this friend's life a good one.
