First, I want to thank my sister Gina for setting up this Beautiful memorial for Duke's first year angel day. I am so very grateful to you for this tender and loving homage to my Duke. Thank you so much Gina!
Next, I want to say that I have spent this morning writing nearly eight (8) pages in my diary recounting this day one year ago in detail. One year already that my precious Duke has been with God in heaven; in complete paradise. You will always be "The Man For Me", notwithstanding my deep love for all my other fur children here on earth. You and I connected from the start, and it only grew stronger and stronger throughout the years. You are my Forever Love! My time with you was invaluable. You were a special gift from God Duke, and I was so lucky to have spent those years with you. Tonight, I am having a animal party sponsored by the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) to "END PUPPYMILLS". I am doing this in your memory, and in honor of Happy who was a puppymill dog for seven out of her ten years wthen I adopted her two years ago. Come to the party my dearest Duke. I know you will be with us, and I suspect you will be with me this day too. Till we meet again, stay with me in spirit, and ask God to help guide me in life. FOREVER IN LOVE!
WE LOVE YOU DUKE
Sending you all our love on
Your First Year Angel Day

A Letter From Your Pet In Heaven
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from the Bridge. Here I dwell with God above. Here there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you. It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on." God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you... in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years, because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before. There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; But together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too; That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain; Then you can say to God at night... "My day was not in vain." And now I am contented... that my life was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along I made somebody smile. God says: "If you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low; Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street with me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind." "And when it's time for you to go... from that body to be free. Remember you're not going... you're coming here to me."
