"So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice and no one will take your joy from you"

"To Our Father"
Thanks for the sweet memories you left for us. Thanks for giving us so much love. Those memories will make us smile now.
Oh! but how we wish we had one more
day with you, just so we could get on each other nerves. That was our way of saying we love you. We may fight and argue, but at the end of the day you are still was our father. The things you told us to do that was right, we thought it was wrong, but now were older so we see it. We know now you were guiding us
along. We want to thank you for all you have done. You put up a good fight. Understand, we all get tired. so may you rest now, no more fighting, and no more being in pain. You go on and run your dogs with ease and we will see you later
Love, Your children
