No words can ease the pain in your heart right now.

May she run like the wind with a smile in her heart knowing she has this time with you and you with her. You gave her a love she never knew before. You will be in her heart forever and hers in yours.

May you find comfort for all the heartache you have experienced in your losses in the

knowledge that you have given such love and devotion to these seniors. Each one is

special and each one has loved you dearly in return for your loving care of them.

Actually. Here's a poem a friend sent me after we lost our Jeffrey. I hope it's ok. Somehow, in my sadness, it said everything I felt. And I hope you can find some solace in it too. I've chanegd it a bit for Ivey, and though I didn't know her, I have a feeling I would have loved her.



Broken Heart - A Poem for Ivey


My grief it overwhelms me

My tears, they never end

I cannot breathe, I cannot talk

I've just lost my best friend


We used to walk in early morn,

But now I walk alone

My footsteps silently they tread

Across the dewy lawn


My car it echoes like a tomb

Without my Ivey there.

But somehow I can feel you still

A blessing in despair


At home the noise is empty

Without you being there

Your toys and treats surround me

Still I miss your gentle stare


I bend down from my chair

To scratch your silken head

My fingers fall on empty space

I see my feet instead


The leash and collar hang upon

A hook inside the hall

Your empty bowls upon the floor

Your toys against the wall


I cannot bear to hide them

In my mind's eye you still play

I can see your face in every room

In the spots you used to lay


I wonder how the world goes on

Without my best friend near

How can it keep its orbit

When the center is not here


I think the hardest thing of all

Is waking up without you

No wagging tail to greet me

Your face is not in sight




Sometimes in the dead of night

As I lay in quiet sleep

I can feel your velvet upon my arm

Nose kisses on my cheek


Although I grieve, I will go on

There are others to be saved

It was you who made me realize

That a difference can be made


When my grief it overwhelms me

I still see your gentle face

I know that we will meet again

In the designated place


I know the bonds of love we shared

Will transcend all time and space

But my anguished heart cries out in pain

For the void that takes your place


When my grief it overwhelms me

I can find no peace at night

Without your warm breath sounds and sighs

I lie awake until the light


I walk out in the garden

And 'see' your needle nose

Poking above your well worn hole

Such contentment in repose.


Each flower is now your memorial

In spring they'll bloom for you

Just as my heart was reborn

when I adopted you.


I'll walk the grass you used to run and

Watch you in my heart

Run with the wind and angels

Until we're not apart


How blessed we were, how lucky

That our paths crossed in this way

And God in all his wisdom

Let us bond that fateful day


And so Best Friend, til we meet again

I'll find solace in my dreams

I will see you in the snow and rain

and run with you again


I will close my eyes in a quiet place

When my grief's too much to bear

And pretend if only for a time

That your presence is still there





-- I'm sure your sweet angel loves you and will be in your heart always.
