Just a quick post to share a very sad piece of news of my darling 15 years German Shepherd, our baby, companion and friend. She is the most wonderful dog and companion. She came into our life when she was 4 months in 1998. She was healthy and strong all the way but became bedridden 7 months ago when her legs gave way. We cared for her all that we could. She passed on yesterday around 715pm and she was cremated at 1145am this morning. I was so overcome with grief on her passing, for she has been my constant, lovable companion for the longest time. Never judging, only know how to love and comfort me.
Made the card for her. She was scented with perfume and her casket was filled with gorgeous flowers with garlands of flowers by my in laws, truly a grand send off befitting of doggie queen. She is always quiet, loyal and elegant, always there present, loving and protecting! I made this card to go with her and a short memorial prayer that I found in the internet and modified it for her. May her spirit be free to experience greater joys that life on earth could not give her.
Thanks for all who send kind wishes :). Meera is at peace and in a happier place. Hugs.
Her memorial prayer…
Heavenly Father, Creator of all things, thank you for having entrusted us with a loyal, loving and wonderful companion Meera.. Thank you for letting Meera teach us unselfish love.
Thank you for the all the loving memories that we can recall to brighten our days for the rest of our lives.
Finally, in gratitude, we return our Meera to you.
Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion, Meera
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 Bash and I and those she come to contact with
Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing it with much love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.
Grant us the strength not to dwell on our loss.
Help us remember the details of Meera’s life
with the love and faithfulness she has shown us.
And grant us 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 Meera over into your paradise,
May she be filled with much joy, love, countless bones and her favourite food, Fried Chicken and Liver, May she able to run wild, freely with spirit of love and freedom.
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the time we’ve had together.
And thank you, Lord,
for granting us the strength
to give Meera to you now.
