It is now March 03, 2018 and I have just returned from the funeral held for a rather wonderful man whom I respected very much. As the service was continuing I started to think of Pet Loss Canada and the journey that we have travelled with all who needed our love and support. I am in my 74th year, and soon will be leaving PLC. BUT I hope that someone will come along who will want to continue the work being done here. I would hate to see the needs of people ever growing while this support is left behind. As part of the funeral service the following poem was read which, as I listened, had a definite place on this site as well for bidding our loving and caring animals adieu. So I give it to you as well:
FAREWELL MY FRIENDS
Farewell my friends. It is beautiful as long as it lasted, the journey of my life.
I have no regrets, whatsoever said, the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care…. And the strings pulling at the heart and soul…
The strong arms hat held me up when my own strength let me down.
At the turning of my life I came across Good Friends,
Friends who stood by me even when time raced me by’
Farewell, farewell my friends I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not: all I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me for that’s what I’ll like.
When you live in the hearts of those you love
Remember then You never die
