A Parting Prayer for Lucy

Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort Lucy
across the Rainbow Bridge.

Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a faithful servant
and has always done her best to please us.

Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.

Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor her
by sharing those memories with others.

Let her remember us as well
and let her know that we will always love her.
And when it’s our time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring us home.

Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of Lucy’s companionship
and for the time we’ve had together.

And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now. Lucy, you were the best!



With All Our Love,
