one year ago it was the saddest day of our life.
That day we lost Pipke.
In loving memory I dedicate this poem to her
You came into our lives for much too short time
a time we wouldn't trade not even for a million dime

Then before we knew it the years have flown by
and then all of the sudden we had to say good-bye

It was exact one year ago that we had to say our good-bye

I then held on to you very tight as you closed your eyes

Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove

into God's loving arm's; in heaven above

Over the days we've shed many tears

but the memories we have will live on for years

We feel your presence and we know that you're near

you're keeping us safe and calming our fear

We think about memories from years past

when you were young and strong, and could run so fast

we remember all the great times that we all had

how you always made us happy never made us mad

They were the best and happiest years we had

we'll always look back on them and never be sad

We look forward to the time we'll be together again

and we thank the Lord for such a great friend

Now you run and play up in Heaven above

cradled in God's arms covered with his love

Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day

we come down thru the meadow to the bridge to stay

The love that you showed us we'll never forget

because to us you're one very special pet

You're like a star in the dark of night

always watching over us with the Lord's light

So now we take time to remember you most beloved friend

you will always be with us even to the end

We'll always remember you the way you were

one lovable huggable soft pile of feathers.
