Louise by Pat Rinko / Mark, Mary, Georgia, and Lily

To have loved and then said farewell, is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you have stooped and touched her head, fed Louise her favorite treat and returned the love that she so unconditionally gave to you.
For the care that you gave to her so unselfishly.
For all of these things Louise was grateful and thankful.

I ask that you not grieve for the loss, but rejoice in the fact that Louise lived, loved and shared with you, Nick, and Herc a good life. Her life was fuller because you were all there, not as a master/owner, but as her FRIEND.

Today Louise is as she was in her youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among the flowers and the Sun shines gently down upon all of God’s creatures.
Louise can run, jump, play and do all of the things that she did in her youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints and no regrets and no aging.

We await the arrival of our lifelong companions and know that togetherness is forever.
Pet lovers such as you are so rare and unique.
Don’t hold the love that you have within yourself. Give it to another like Louise and then she will live forever. For love never really dies.

Your Louise In Heaven.


With Love and Sympathy,
