To My Funny Valentine

Who filled my days with so much joy, laughter, & smiles,

Who gave me unconditional love with an exuberance unmatched by anyone else in my life,

Who left me with wonderful memories that I will cherish for a lifetime,

And who I will keep in my heart forever….



I Love You Sweet Molly Girl!



My dear, precious friend – How could I not take the time to honor you on a day set aside to honor LOVE.  Love – the very thing you so epitomized every day of your life.  I could never begin to thank you enough for all the love you gave to me.  Your love was something everyone could always count on being there – and I never took that for granted.  You could always brighten even my darkest of days with your joyful, loving spirit.  Even today, I can still almost feel you lovingly laying across my feet as I sit on the couch the way you always did, or feel you burning holes into me with your beautiful, pleading eyes as you stared at me as I ate.  And I swear if I live to be 102 there will never be another soul on earth ever so excited to see me walk through the door as you always were – Thank you for always making me feel so very loved.  If anyone ever needed validation that they mattered in this world, you were always the one to give it to them – and to me, you gave that validation freely, frequently, and with great exuberance.  How I miss having your beautiful presence in my life.  But the love and friendship you gave was so strong that it will linger on forever in my memory, and it will continue to put a smile on my face in your absence – I promise.  I only hope that you felt just as loved by me in return, my sweet beloved friend.  You meant the world to me, Lollipops!  And so I devote this page to the memory of the fun we had and the great love and friendship we shared.  Sweet Molly Girl –  Always know that I loved you yesterday… I love you today… and I will love you forever more, my precious friend.  You are always in my heart.


Your Old Pal,





Love Within My Eyes

I've been blessed with many things,
The best of all is you,
A friend unlike all others,
With a Love so strong and true.
As the days go slowly by,
I'll watch you from above,
Guiding with a gentle paw,
And never ending love.
When you need to feel me near,
Look to the starry sky,
For the twinkle that is brightest,
Is the love within my eyes.

~ by Terri Onorato



Molly – I feel compelled to thank you for sending Teddy to me, as I know you had a hand in bringing us together.  I certainly was not looking for a dog at the time, but I was overwhelmingly compelled to save that sweet, sad-eyed little boy from the shelter before it was too late.  In the end, I think Teddy might have saved me just as much as I saved him, as my heart was so shattered after losing you that I don’t think it would have ever started healing again had he not come along.  And even though no dog could ever take your place, thank you for sending me a new dog to love again – and one who would love me back.

While you are away from me,
When we must be apart;
Take these words I give to you,
And tuck them in your heart.

Keep them there inside of you,
For only you to hear;
Then if you're ever lonely,
Just know that I am near.

You are the very sunshine,
That shines into my soul;
The value of a smile from you,
Worth more than diamonds and gold.

You are the inspiration,
That causes me to soar;
And with each passing moment,
I only love you more.

You are the song with in me,
The rhythm and the rhyme;
A song that grows much sweeter,
With the passing time.

So take these tender spoken words,
And tuck them in your heart;
Then as long as my heart beats for you,
We'll never be apart.


~ Allison Chambers Coxsey

Molly – I can never thank you enough for your loving friendship and for all the great fun we had!  We sure did do some silly stuff and shared an awful lot of laughs together, didn’t we Babycakes?  I cherish those memories.  Thank you so much!
