Winky was truly an angel on earth.
In loving memory of our baby girl,Winky, who blessed our lives for twelve years, one month, and twelve days.
Winky will be in our hearts forever. She was the love of our lives and the center of our world. Every day Mom would whisper in her ear, "You are my favorite, and I do not know what I ever did to deserve you." Of course, Mom whispered loud enough for all to hear, and everyone agreed that Winky truly was our favorite.
Winky brought love, peace, gentleness and joy to every minute of every day. We never realized what loneliness was until the day she left us. We feel so empty inside. We love you, our sweet angel.
Winky was always quiet, calm and loving. She touched the lives of everyone she met. Winky changed our lives forever.
If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
We have slightly altered the original poem to make it from Winky's heart.
When tomorrow starts without me, And I'm not there to see; If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry The way you did today.
I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, I had so much to live for, So much yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you. I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had. In all the years we spent together, We were never sad.
If I could relive yesterday, Just even for awhile, I'd give you my paw and kiss you And I know I'd see you smile. But then I fully realized, That this could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me.
When I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. Tremendous love surrounded me. I knew I'd never be alone. When God looked down and smiled at me, He said "This is eternity, And all I've promised you. Today for life on earth is past, But here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, And since each day's the same day There's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, So trusting and so true. I promise, you, that one day Those you had to leave behind, Will one day join you too."
So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.
We love you, precious angel. We miss you so much, and we will keep you in our hearts forever.
Winky when she was a baby!
Our Winky is a special part of our family. She will always have a special place in our hearts.
Winky is gone from our sight... but never our memory... She is gone from our hearing... but never our hearts, gone from our touch... but her presence is felt, and the love that Winky gave us will be cherished forever in our hearts.
Winky was also lovingly known as Doodle, Gracie, Binky, Munchkin, Angel Breath, Sweetie Pie, Lover Lips, Papa Bear, Best Buddy and many more!
