For our pet lovers, Ed has written this beautiful poem. God has put “the breath of life” in every creature, so we believe our pets will meet us in Heaven…
This is my paw, it belongs to me, but you can shake it if you please.
This is my paw, it belongs to me, it has chased many squirrels up a tree.
This is my paw, it belongs to me, so please do not look at it so sad, when it’s time for me to leave.
For my paw, and all of me will live forever, as long as you remember the good times we had together.
