To My Loving Friends
Ed, Jamie, Ashley, & Eddie Kovanda

Losing a family member has got to be
one of the hardestthings of all.
I wish I could take all your pain away!
On this Disappointing, Heartbreaking, & Painful
moment in your life remember:
You are one of the BEST family animal owners I know.
And in my next life I would love to
come back as one of your dogs.
I am lighting this candle not only for KC,
But also for you.
I thought this candle was a way to say the
words that I did not know how to say.
I am including two poems I found that
I hope will bring you some peace.
Remember I am always here for you
not only at this time of need,
but for a lifetime!
Your Friend Forever & Always,
Denise Johnson

If It Should Be

If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand;
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years -
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come, so let me go.
Take me where my needs they'll tend.
And please stay with me until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Athough my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve - it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years -
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.

Look not where I was
For I am not there
My spirit is free
I am everywhere
In the air that you breathe
In the sounds that you here
Don't cry for me Mom
My spirit is near
I'll watch for you
From the other side
I'll be the one running
New friends by my side
Smile at my memory
Remember in your heart
This isn't the end
It's a brand new start
