1993 to May 18, 1995
You were the
very best little companion and friend that anyone could want.
and love brightened our lives on each day you were with us.
You were as
the wildest of all creatures, but still reveled in the comfort
and warmth of our home and affection.
You lived every
minute of your short life to its maximum. Ultimately, this very
exuberance doomed you to an untimely end.
When you left
us, the skies darkened, and mother nature shed tears as did we.
As we laid your
physical remains to rest and said our final good-byes, the clouds
cleared and the sun came out to welcome your spirit.
You left us
with many happy memories. We will never forget your joy, on
your last evening on earth, as you dashed after us to the woods,
wondered about the chirping of the frogs in the bog, and rolled
and froliced in the grass in the field. You knew that we were
showing you our hunting grounds, and that excited you tremendously.
We will always
remember with fondness your affection for us and your total devotion
to us. Our home and hearts will always have an empty spot, missing
We will eventually
find other little friends to share our lives, for us to hug and
nuzzle and to worry over, but we will never be able to replace
our little Skipper.
Enjoy the happy
hunting ground, where the skies are always sunny, the grass always
green, and the birds never taunting.
Most of all,
Skipper, rest in peace. We will miss you very much.
