Farewell Old Friend - Gone but Never Forgotten

Fritz Schubert Gladys ... 1995 - 2010

Fritz old friend,

The day I saw you in that pet store I knew.

I didn't take you home that day but I could not get you out of my mind (or heart) and came back a few days later to take you home forever.

So many years together buddy, and so many adventures! Together we travelled the country and in 2003, made Colorado our home.

I watched you grow from a puppy into the lionhearted little guy you became. Although you only weighed 24 pounds, in your mind you were a giant. :)

The words "Brave, loyal, and loving" hardly do you justice, old friend, as you were all of those things and much, much more. You were my best friend and constant companion.

It's been 4 years now since God called you home, buddy, and not a day has passed that I haven't thought of you. I spread your ashes under the (then small) evergreen tree you loved so much. It's grown tall and strong since then, Fritz, and every time I see it, I see you.

Thank you for sharing your life with me, old friend. I will never forget you. Physically you are gone but you'll live on forever in my heart, and memory.

Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge, know that you were loved beyond words, and are missed beyond measure.

Ed in Denver
