Riley Sweet Brindle Boy
To Riley, my love, who left this world April 19 2009, the day I will forever remember in my heart.
Riley, you were my sweet boy who loved everyone, and everyone loved you. To be rescued from a pound when you had lived there 5 months of your young life. To be brought back after being adopted 7 weeks later. To enter my life after my Lady had died. To take on protecting your little sister Lil Lady when she was 7 weeks old, your were her big brother and she misses you so.
You will forever be my baby who carried my shoes onto the bed and to lay your sweet chin on. To the little boy who learned how to howl when you didn't know how.
My heart is broken but I know someday I will see you again, that sweet brindle boy who stole my heart. Till we are reunited again Riley.
Love Mom, Dad and Lil Lady
