My Beautiful Friend

My remembrance of you
Will never be altered
No matter how long
I'm left here alone

I'm left here alone
To live out my days
Still full of your grace
And my remembrance of you

Time paints a picture
And changes a season
Never to pass
The same way again

The same way again
Until the day when
I meet you in heaven
My beautiful friend.

~ Diana Jones

Rest peacefully, Riley. You are loved.

I'm with Tonjia...what happened to Riley? I'm so's so terrible to lose a faithful friend :(

Lea said...

Riley, my dear friend Mark's dog, had very painful arthritis. It was time to let him have the relief he couldn't have here with us.

From the day I met Riley he was my possessive, slobbery, goofy friend and it was a love fest.

May he forever run and play in the Summerlands.

Lea (& Mark): Riley looks like an absolute sweetheart. I'm glad he's now painfree, but I'm very sorry for your loss.

Reading the comments about Riley warms any animal lover's heart. Thank you.... (Riley's bereaved family)

OMG! I was feeling so horrible to think that I did not know your dog was sick. I still feel bad for him, but not as horrible as I was. It was the right thing to do. A dog should not have to suffer when there is no reason for it. I am sorry for the loss of Riley but remember the good times.
