Buddy ~

You were only with us for such a short time…
only 6 years old.

...too soon for such a beautiful soul to leave us here.



we will never forget your devotion to us,
how you loved and protected us ~
how you made our lives better…




thank you for loving us as fiercely as you do.
for being a best friend to Lazy
and everyone who came to visit us ~





...please know we will never, ever forget you.

* Blessed be *
 Lori

Pamela Gracia said...

In my heart I knew this was what had taken your breath away and caused you to be absent. There is really nothing I could say to ease the pain, loss and emptiness you and your family feel right now. Just know that for 6 years Buddy was loved and he got to love an amazing family....he left his paw print on your heart. He'll always be watching over all of you! RIP dear Buddy!

arttramp said...

my dear friend...no words can express how I feel or would be able to console you so just know I am with you and will be here if you or Peter need me. As I read this my one thought was that IF you would like me to make one of my boxes to honor the memory of Buddy...just let me know. We can talk more about it then...

I'm so very sorry for your loss of Buddy. We had to let our Winnie, our golden retriever, go, last Memorial Day weekend when she started having seizures that left her unable to stand or walk. It was the hardest decision we ever had to make. She gave us 12 wonderful years. Buddy looks so lovable & cuddly. I know how much you'll miss him.

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Like many of the sweet creatures that have come into your home and your heart it is most painful when they leave...
Rest assured you gave a Buddy a loving home and he in turn shared his life with you.
There are few words to lessen the loss or the pain except may you someday be reunited in that wonderful place called Heaven...
