is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must report the passing of
My Friend and Partner Jack K9~52.
Jack lost his battle with cancer on April 7, 2001 and was called to
Jack was also a faithful member of the Fairview Volunteer Fire
THESE PAGES ARE DEDICATED TO HIS MEMORY.
May you rest peacefully now Jack, You will be greatly missed .
There will NEVER be another like you.
had to have my Mom (Valerie) make these pages for me seeing as how my paws
don't work real well on the keyboard!)
best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head lay in my hand.
The doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurred through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms,
Were of his younger puppy years,
And Oh....his many charms.
Today there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense "I love you" gaze.
Only a heart that's filled with tears,
Remembering our joy-filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And said, "You should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,
He's installed a doggie

Don't Grieve Too
grieve too long for now I'm free
I've followed the path God set for me
I ran to him when I heard his call
I swished my tail and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To bark, to love, to romp or play
Games left unplayed must stay that way
I found such peace, it made my day.
My partings has left you with a void
Please fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with ties of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, you've given so much
Your time, your love and gently touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your head and share with me
God wanted me, he set me
your pawprints in Roxy's guestbook.
