It's been two months today since I lost my Heidi girl. I wanted to share with all of you the card I made to send to the people who helped out during and after her illness. Everyone on this forum helped so much that I thought it should be shared with all.

Sleep in peace, my sweet girl, and know that you are still with me, in my heart.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge, myth is more potent than history, dreams are more powerful than facts, hope always triumphs over experience, laughter is the cure for grief, and love is stronger than death.

I know how hard it is Blair. Heidi was a very special girl and grief takes it's own time. I still dry thinking of Max. Hug Luke, Maggie and Tucker!!!!

Oh Blair ... Beautiful! The depth of your love for Heidi is very apparent ...

I’m Still Here
Friend, please don't mourn for me,​
I'm still here, though you don't see.​
I'm right by your side each night and day,​
And within your heart I long to stay.​

My body is gone but I'm always near,​
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.​
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart,​
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.​

I'll never wander out of your sight.​
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.​
I'll never be beyond your reach.​
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.​
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around,​
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground.​
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,​
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.​

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,​
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.​
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,​
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.​

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,​
You can talk to me through the Lord above you.​
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,​
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.​

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep,​
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.​
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.​
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!​

A great picture of your Heidi girl. We both loved the card. It's a keeper and we'll add it to Kelby's folder.

What a sweet peacefull picture. My sincere condolences. I Lost both my golden's last year. Ginger at 13, had to be put down for illness. Bailey, Ginger's 9 year old niece died unexpectedly in November, 08, possibly a heart attack. I swear that I hear Ginger barking from time to time and I still wait for them to come out from their cooling spot under our deck.
On a happy note, we are awaiting the birth of "Bella" this week.

Prayers for you Blair. I know she is smiling down at you and happy that you were her Mommy. You gave her so much in her too short time with you. That is a beautiful card.

What a lovely tribute to a beautiful girl. I feel your pain. I lost my Rowdy on Jan 28th and still miss him each day. He never came home from tie-back surgery for larangeal paralysis; aspiration pneumonia took him quickly. Take care.
