The day you left, a piece of my heart went with you.
I miss you more than ever.
I expect to see your smiling face.
I miss you waking me up each morning.
My first briard...
saying goodbye was the hardest thing I have ever done.
Til we meet again my friend.
I will always love you!!!

Lovingly missed by Shirley Newby








"LETTER FROM HEAVEN"


To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with GOD above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
GOD picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
GOD gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
GOD and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

My sweet boy,
You fought so hard to stay with me.
Not a day went by you did not wag that tail of yours.
I expect to see you each time I walk in the door....
You were always laughing.
My friend, Our time together was never long enough...
We will meet again.
You will be waiting for me at the Gates of the Rainbow Bridge.......

But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that GOD has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to GOD at night....."My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made sombody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street and you've got Me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.....from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going....you're coming here to Me.

My darling Yvette,
letting you go was a very difficult decision for me.
But to keep you here would have only been selfish on my part.
So I had to let you go,
I released you from your pain and suffering because I love you.
I would have done anything in this world if I could have kept you longer.
Now you're free of pain playing & romping in the fields.
I know Melba and Cooper have greeted you with wagging tails.
We miss you my quiet, sweet, black angel.


Gone but never will you be forgotten.
You are always in my heart.

Love Shirley & Doug Tate.
