Poem by Judy Farrell Away…drifting into the tranquil night surrounded by the soulful light of so many little Angels who shared with us their love who trusted us …dependent and true Upon the waters we release our lonely hearts to you… Everlasting memories…irreplacable joy… lingering still

Notes from Participants:

“THANK YOU for organizing & putting on such a lovely, meaningful & emotional event. The 3 dogs we honored last night have been gone from us for 22, 16 & 7 years, yet I had no idea how powerful the emotions would be as we decorated. You think you have long gotten over the painful loss & yet….. “It was a beautiful experience, thank you!!!” Warm regards, Denise & Jim Beard
