In loving memory of:

Amy's Crickett

Angela's Schatze

Bob and Joanie's Midnight

Jordan's Kody

Lynn's Darcy

Rene's Jill

Rachel's Khiori

joanne_asia says, I would like to start the service by having Cynthia read The Fragile Circle  

cynbogiebit says, We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own

cynbogiebit says, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.

cynbogiebit says, Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.

cynbogiebit says, We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,

cynbogiebit says, never fully understanding the necessary plan.  

 

joanne_asia says, As we light a candle for each Angel pup we will allow some time for anyone who would like to say something in remembrance of that pup

joanne_asia says, We will begin with lighting a candle for Rachel's Khiori...............

cynbogiebit says, In my heart you hold a place

cynbogiebit says, no pup could ever fill.

cynbogiebit says, It broke my heart to lose you,

cynbogiebit says, but you did not go alone.

cynbogiebit says, For part of me went with you,

cynbogiebit says, the day God called you home.

cynbogiebit says, Your precious memory is my keepsake,

cynbogiebit says, with which I'll never part.

cynbogiebit says, God has you safe in His keeping,

cynbogiebit says, but I'll have you forever in my heart.

cynbogiebit says, If tears could build a stairway,

cynbogiebit says, and heartache make a lane,

cynbogiebit says, I'd walk the path to heaven

cynbogiebit says, and bring you back again.

cynbogiebit says, Our family chain is broken,

cynbogiebit says, and nothing seems the same.

cynbogiebit says, But as God calls us one by one,

cynbogiebit says, the chain will link again.
