Tonight I take my dear Corgi Betsy to be released from her burden. She has been ill for some months and it is her time. Please light a candle to guide her as her soul flies over tonight. And for all of you facing this, or who have just lost a precious friend, take comfort from this poem: SOFT WHISPER by Lanie Blackmon My best friend spoke to me last night a soft whisper in my ear. I woke up and looked around the room, I was startled, yet I had no fear. My best friend said that all is fine Rainbow Bridge is so much more. That there was so much love up there, even a beautiful ocean shore. There are fields and fields of green green grass and the sky has different shades of blue. There are flowers, mountains, trees and clouds, everything they said it was, is true. My best friend whispered in my ear last night saying "Please don't cry or be sad. That what was done, had to be done, for me to live my life now, so be glad." My best friend said that I did the right thing an unselfish act on my part. And that the pain and sadness I feel will be gone soon from my heart. I asked my best friend, "How could this be I miss you so much everyday. That my heart hurts so much for you, I wish there could of been another way." My best friend whispered in my ear last night "You will always be in my heart. Go on and live and love another, because we will never really be apart." My best friend whispered in my ear last night "It's time for me to go towards the light. I just wanted to stop and say to you Go on my best friend, I'll be alright." "I carry your unconditional love with me I have done this from the very start." I whispered back to my best friend last night, "I'll always love you with all my heart." "So goodbye my best friend," as I looked up at the sky A shooting star I see in a straight line Moving fast across the sky and out of sight, I whispered, "Goodbye my best friend. Now, I'll be fine."
