Our last summer together

Our last summer together

I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new,

I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.

I think of you in silence and often speak your name,

For all I have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part.

God has you in His keeping. I have you in my heart."

I miss you, my Angel ...

Wait for me at the bridge, girl.

We will meet again, never to be parted.

I Miss You Girl
by: Ed in Denver

Have you a dog in Heaven, Lord?
Is there room for just one more?
Cause my precious dog died today:
She'll be waiting at your door.

Please take her into Heaven Lord,
and keep her there for me,
just feed her, pet her, love her, Lord
that's all she'll ask of thee.

Until My Last Breath...
by: Ed

Over two years have now passed since we said our Earthly "good-byes," girl, and I've missed you every minute of every day since.

Neither I, the Vet, nor any amount of money could have spared you from the illness that's separated us, and I'm sorry for that. I take comfort knowing God was watching and in his wisdom / mercy, knew it was time to call you home.

I know you're in good hands now and that nothing will ever hurt you again.

Thank you for sharing your life with me and allowing me to share mine wth you. If love alone had been enough to save you, you'd be immortal.

Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge, girl, run free. I'll be there when my time comes, and we'll be together for eternity.

Your Human ... Ed

Passage of Time
by: Ed

Today marks 8 months since we said our earthly farwells, girl.

I think of you almost every minute of every day. I love you and will never forget you.

Until my time comes to join you in Heaven, rest well Angel. Thank you for the time you shared with me and for allowing me the honor of being your human.

I love you, Co Co

Love Never Dies
by: Ed

It's hard to comprehend 1/2 a year has passed since our final day on Earth together Co Co.

I think of you always and miss you more and more with each passing day.

You came to my life unloved, abandoned and abused. I hope that in the short time God gave us I was able to wash away the pains of your past and help you know how truly special you are and that all the love I had to offer was yours for the taking.

Sweet, gentle Co Co, thank you for choosing me and allowing me the honor of being your friend, companion, and forever human.

I pray I was able to return to you that which you brought to me.

I will meet you at the bridge one day, girl, but until then, rest well and never doubt that you were loved beyond words and are missed beyond measure.


5 Months Without You
by: Ed

5 Months have now passed since you and I said our Earthly farewells, Co Co, and not a day, hour, minute or second has gone by that I haven't thought of you.

I miss you terribly, Girl, but time has also helped me come to terms with losing you and why.

You had become so ill, and I did everything humanly possible to restore you to health but it seems as though God had other plans and chose to call you home.

The cold, rainy winter morning you left, there wasn't a dry eye in the house, girl. The Vet, his assistant, and especially I were all in tears as you laid your head down / closed your eyes for the last time. I still cry to this day.

I pray that when you opened your eyes, God and all of his Angels were there to greet you. I hope that Mom, Dad, Fritz, and Wolf were there as well and helped show you around Heaven.

I loved you so, Co Co - I always will.
