Remembrance Phrase


Recommended Posts

We lost Sky to osteosarcoma on 4/1/07. He lived for 1 year and 3 days after amputation and chemotherapy. I bought a silver dogtag at Things Remembered and had the front side engraved with his name and dates and 2 paw prints. I wanted to have something engraved on the back but haven't been able to come up with anything that seems appropriate. I was thinking of something along the lines of "Gone but not forgotten" or "Forever in my heart" or "Fly free" or words to that effect but all the little phrases I come up with on my own just don't seem right.


Just thought I'd see if anyone had any thoughts suggestions and I'm hoping one will seem just right so I can finish the engraving.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone has!!

I think I'd leave it just the way you have it. It sounds nice. I'm sorry he's gone. I have tags from both of the hounds who are at the bridge on my key chain so they are always with me.

Sorry, my mind isn't working so well this evening.

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.

Bill I'm sorry. I was thinking of you and Sky today. I like "Forever in my heart" because they are.


Can you send me a picture of Jet and dates for the Hope for Hounds Angel page?

Bill, I'm sorry he's gone.


No grand suggestions for a phrase. Perhaps one will come to you, that suits him and his place in your life; perhaps he was simply indefinably dear.


Rest well, Sky.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sky :(


DH does a similar thing with dog tags...each tag is engraved with the dog's pet name, racing name and a phrase that we feel encompasses what that dog meant to us or describes their spirit, their time with us or something to that effect...We have:

Kali - Om Sri Kali Namah (buddhist mantra)

Star - Burn Bright, Shining Star

Annie - Immortal

Casino - Love is never a gamble

Erin - Beautiful

Dagger (foster at the time of passing) - Forever Home


I also think Forever in our Hearts is nice.

'Forever in my heart' is nice. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Bill. I happen to like "Forever in my heart", because after all ... that's where Sky will always be ... :)


Run free, Sweet Sky ...
