God saw that you were getting tired,
And your cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Adoring eyes went to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
- Carol Aberst

On Thursday, September 2, we lost our beloved Duke who was truly treasured by our family and anyone who met him.

  Duke came to us 5 years ago and was 3 years old at the time.  From the minute he came to our home, we knew he was special.  Duke was very smart and laid back.  All he ever wanted was to please our family, and we knew he appreciated us from the very start.  He went over the Rainbow Bridge sooner than we expected...... he was diagnosed with a stomach tumor, and when he went into surgery, he had paritinitis which was caused by a hole in his colon.
