REST IN PEACE DEAR ELLE AND RUN FREE WITH YOUR MUM, NAN AND SISTER.

YOU  WERE PART OF MY LIFE FOR SUCH A VERY LONG TIME AND WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS A VERY SPECIAL GIRL INDEED.

 

 BORN, LOVED AND BRED HERE AT STORMLAKE  AND THE LAST OF MY ORIGINAL GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS.

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,

I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.

I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free

Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side

Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!

And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see

Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!

My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new

And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright

That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.

'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold

And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,

We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.

So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart

If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
