For my beloved Sheltie, "Sadie,"
April 1991 - November 17, 2003



Sadie with Jim and Cynnamon



I lost my dear girl yesterday, peacefully, at home, with me next to her.
I could write a whole book about how much she meant to me. Instead, all
I was able to manage was the below. I buried her in one of our favorite
spots, along with her favorite toy.


"A Last Walk in the Woods"
From Jim Willis
November 18th., 2003


Lord, consecrate this ground,
My Friend is buried here,
Some may say, "Just a dog,"
But to me, she was most dear.

The trees bowed in respect,
As Sadie and I walked by,
She, wrapped in a blanket,
Me, stopping to breathe and cry.

We'd come this way so often,
Sadie always knew the way,
I can't believe she's gone now,
When I prayed for another day.

Cover her grave in flowers,
Send gentle breezes through the air,
Enjoy her company, Dear Lord,
And assure her I'll see her there.
