PASSED – 2020

God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So, he closed his arms around you
And whispered “Come to me.”

In tears we saw you sinking.
We watched you fade away.
Our hearts were truly broken,
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
Peacefully and free of pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

So, keep your arms around him, Lord
And give him special care.
Make up for all he suffered
That seemed to be unfair.
So many times we’ve needed you,
So many times we’ve cried.
If love could have saved you,
You never would have died.

How would I have described this wonderful old boy?  Independent, single-minded, sweet and gentle….

This was a dog that came from a loving home.  But circumstances were such that his owner had to make a brave and desperate decision.  He asked if we could take his old boy and love him the way he did and make sure that he had everything that he needed to make his very golden years special.  Remy fit right in with the rest of our residents even though he towered over most of them.  They all just accepted this new hairy guy and so…  Remy was home.

Remy lived with us for 2 years.  The time went by far too quickly.  We feel blessed to have had him with us – to be able to care for him and love him.

Thank you, Peter, for entrusting him to our care.  I know you miss him.  We will miss him too…
