"There is a boy who stands in heaven so tall and very strong,
with eyes as green as sea foam and a heart that holds a song.
A song of his dear old Dad his friend from down below,
that angels come to hear him sing and watch his sweet face glow.
He sings a song of yesterday and the love that he has shared,
a story of true friendship his notes now fill the air.
For this strong young boy sings this tune while his friends all clap in delight,
and notice his Dad's reflection in his heart that glows so bright.
Then this strong young boy turns around and before he even knew,
his friends held together a string of balloons of the brightest blue.
Then they took their friend by the hand and sang him his very own song,
then placed a hat above his head and formed a line so long.
To thank this fine young boy for the gift within their heart,
to hear his sweetest melody upon the mornings start.
Then the friends again formed a line to follow in such joy,
one of their kindest friends and today a birthday boy"

Good Morning Charles,handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for coffee and your kind words as always.The coffee is much appreciated,especially since i have been getting up at 4:00Am lately. Byron tells me that i need a intravenous of coffee flowing daily. Ha-Ha. Your kindness is always appreciated by all here at the shelter.
I hope all is well with you. It is suppose to be melting here today which is very unusual for us at this time of year.There certainly is alot of snow to melt but i hope the rivers and lakes can hold all of the water or I may need to bring out the boat. Ha-Ha.
Sammy I hear there will be a big celebration at Rainbow Bridge on Monday in honor of your Birthday. I know you will have alot of fun with all the furbabies there with you.
Sending hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

My Beloved Sammy, Gabby and Bob M ... I just wanted to leave you a post. You know your dad loves and misses each of you so much.
Sammy, you know, "You've always been my Hero" ... I know you know that. How I am so thankful for that day when "we found each other" .... I will forever love you, son.
I know you are happy and running and playing with all your beautiful friends. Tell them that your dad loves each of them. Until we are reunited .. never to be apart ever again, I LOVE YOU.

We have a secret, you and I,
That no one else shall know,
For who, but I can see you lie,
Each night, in fire glow?
And who but I can reach my hand
Before we go to bed,
And feel the living warmth of you
And touch your silken head?
And only I walk woodland paths,
And see, ahead of me,
Your large form racing with the wind,
So young again, and free.
And only I can see you swim
In every brook I pass...
And, when I call, no one but I
Can see the bending grass.

Dear Charles, I know it is cold there. We are having three good days and then we're getting hit with another one! Kiss Cupcake and Xander for me. I know the weather is perfect at The Bridge and they are soaking up the sunshine....Pat

Hi Charles and kids. I have a break now before i head on to the shelter so wanted to stop by and wish you a grand weekend. It is raining here 'unreal" for us at this time of year.Of course this makes a mess all over the streets and everywhere else. We never know what we get next for weather.
I am certainly enjoying my classes , although I never did think I would be going back to school at this age., but anything for the furbabies is ok with me!!
I know I will enjoy the classes even more when we start to bring a dog with us. As i told Kim, It was one thing to read a book but the hands on experience is what really counts. I am not sure which dog i will take yet as there are a few at the shelter that i have to choose from. OR i can always take Samantha or Taz. Ha-Ha_Ha. I wonder if they would know that the both of them have already been professionally trained by Lawrence. Ha-Ha. That would be one way of passing with flying colors. Ha-Ha.
Hello Sammy , Gabby and little Bob..... Sammy are you and Luke laughing at me being back at school.? Ha-Ha.
Sending hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Dear Charles, I was reading through Sammy's pages and, of course, I started crying. We are so lucky that we've had such unconditional love from our dogs and cats. I always make it a point to read the first page and laugh about you and Sammy rescuing one another. Tippy sure saved my life. Had it not been for the "Fab Four", I would not be sitting here writing to you. Sammy knew a "good thing" when he saw you!! He knew all that love was there just waiting for the taking....Stay warm, my friend. xoxo Pat, Tim, Mike, Lita and Clemmie

Dear Charles, I'm back "online" now. It is so cold here that I am surprised that anything is working. Going to be 2 degrees tonight. Was last night also.
I made Pearl a memorial in Fayeroe's pages. I gave up on Monday that I wasn't going to find her. She and Faye were best of friends so I know that they are together now. I know that Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. have greeted her.

I can see that you also loved Sammy so much! I know you must still be dealing with the loss.
Thank you so much for your kind words and support. Ace passed away very unexpectedly with cancer. We didn’t see it coming and it has been so devastating. He was a great friend, companion and child. Thank you again and please know that your words are very comforting.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit Harvey. I miss him so much and feel so lonely. He was my everything and I look forward to the day that we will be together again. Your words of comfort to Harvery and me and the tribute to Sammy warmed my heart. Thanks again.

Dearest Friend, Charles.
It is so cold here. Going to be wind chill of 2 tonight. I've got hens as warm as possible. Going to buy grass hay tomorrow and put it on the roost.
Charles, Pearl didn't show up last Wednesday and I've searched and searched. Can't find her. I am just sick about it. I've cried myself into headaches and nausea. She was always my little "princess kitty". She was so delicate and shy. I'm afraid something got her. I hope it was quick if that happened. I've been up and down the creek three or four times. I still turn the patio light on just in case.
Give everyone a hug and kiss from me and mine......

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as always. Thankyou for the comment on my new page also. I happened to hear that song on the way to Luke's shelter one morning and "had" to have it. Of course, I stopped at every music store to try and buy it but was told it has not been released yet. I think it is such a comforting song .
I see you are getting a cold spell as well. It has been very cold here for the past few days but will be warming up tomorrow. Hopefully the change in weather so sudden does not bring more snow or ice storms. I've had enough of that kind of thing this winter. We have been getting such drastic changes in weather that one never knows what we will wake up too. Take care and stay warm. Hello handsome boy,Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. I know you are all busy watching over your little sister and brother and of course your Dad. As I looked at the Forums page, I see there is a special day for a special boy coming up this month. I know it will be a exciting event at Rainbow Bridge.
Sending hugs all around.
Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Sending warm and wonderful wishes your way, as they look in on their dad and brothers and sisters ... Sammy gently places a thicker blaket on them as they stay curled up together ... Wow, -#'s, mighty cold here to, we got hail today that froze, and I dont know what we're getting tomorrow, might be some storm...will have to wait and see. Sending you our love, always, Luna, her mom and the girls Lily & Opal

I can't tell you how much I cried reading your tribute to your baby Sammy. You truly loved him. Even though it's been almost 3 years, I can still see the pain that you have for the loss of him. Today it is 3 weeks for me since I loss my Prince. I don't think the pain of losing him will ever go away. You opened your heart to Sammy back on that Valentine's Day in 1993 and he never stopped loving you. I am truly sorry for your loss.
