In Memory of Tasha....10/07/94--8/21/09

A Dear Friend of mine lost her beloved Tasha last Friday to cancer. As all pet lovers know,this is not an easy thing. My heart goes out to Darlene in her time of loss. If you love pets,please say a little prayer for her and the other 3 furrychildren that have lost a sister. They grieve also. Till we meet again.

A beautiful and Loved Girl

Dear Darlene,I know nothing can stop the pain of your loss but I hope in some small way this might give you a little comfort.

A Letter From Tasha In Heaven

To my dearest family,
some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know,
that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from Heaven.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here there's no more tears of sadness.
Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you
every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
They'll be here later on."
God gave me a list of things,
that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list,
was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night
the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you...
in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth,
and all those loving years,
because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry:
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you
all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you,
you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now,
than I ever was before.
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it
by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world,
the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody
who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night...
"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented...
that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along
I made somebody smile.
God says: "If you meet somebody
who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up,
as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street
with me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind."
"And when it's time for you to go...
from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...
you're coming here to me."


  1. So sorry Darlene, Tasha was BEAUTIFUL.

  2. Thoughts of love and peace to Darlene and her pets.

  3. Wishing Darlene and her furbabies peace. I lost my Sandi over three years ago to cancer and still grieve for her and her gentle ways.

  4. Aw! This was so Beautiful! Just like Tasha. I'm sure she was a lovely doggie and an amazing companion. Prayers and love to you Darlene and Tasha's siblings

  5. Words can never thank you for posting this on your blog. This means more to me than you can ever know. I don't think I have ever felt the kind of hurt that I have the past few days but having this to read helps me so much. Your a wonderful friend (more like family) and I'm so lucky to have you. There is nothing anyone could have done that would have meant as much to me as you doing this. Tasha might have barked a lot at you, but I know now she is looking over you and thanking you for being here and helping her Mommy, Maw Maw, Sisters and Brother get thru this. I also want to thank everyone that left the other comments, they all mean a lot to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart....I Love You Dear My Wonderful Friend!

  6. Joe and I spend our days watching our Lucky. Every little sigh, or odd tremblings gets us scared to death. He's now heading for 18 and that's a LONG time in OUR lives to be coming to an end.

  7. Aw, bless her little heart. I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading....


Would love to hear from you. It doesn't even have to be about my post,just say hi or maybe you have something that you would like to rant about.If you do the floor is yours. Either way,I'm proud you stopped by and hurry back.
