If we are here we have been blessed with another day to relish

the fact we can express our love for all that is good in our lives..

Many years ago I rescued a guy we called Charlie..

Age unknown , just knew of neglect, meals few and far between ,

filth and squalor.. When the call came they had a agressive unwanted

un sellable I was hooked, paid the price and brought Charlie home.

We had 2 weeks of one on one me loving him drawing blood. He only knew

2 words both not acceptable in any church.

Charlie  learned many words and learned to accept the hands of 

Friendship  from  other humans without fear or intimidation.

Then he fell in Love  with  our Daughter calling her name and 

always on the lookout for her.. So after  years  with me he was  transferred

to her home and her children as a birthday gift..

Charlie lived with her for many years  bring happiness  into her home

and those  who entered her hom.... Then  Ron  entered Charlies life...

Ron was battling Cancer, and lived alone, so Charlie  move in with

Ron to  Comfort and be a Companion during his Final months, weeks,

days, and final breathe..

Then Charlie  returned home just a few days ago calling out names  and 

letting everyone know he was back home again..

Home Again

I believe he had to have his final farewell..

Because as our Daughter and Grand children were here with me after

completing  the Hood to Coast Run  raising  money  for a

Cure for All Cancers..

The Call came in last Night Charlie had collapsed and  passed away

As I write this I remember  the song

Somewhere Over  The Rainbow

Well Charlie  has now got his forever Wings and has  Joined

Ron and all of those we Love who lost their Battles with Cancer..

The Pets we have lost to Cancer.. and our Ancestors..

So many  come into this world only looking for love.

They sometimes face horrible  trials we cannot imagine

Yet when we lose them we can look back and see all the

Beauty  they have left behind in our hearts.

So Rest In Peace Charlie

We will Remember  all the Beauty, Love and Compassion you

had for those around you ..

Count your blessings my Friends
Be thankful for the Love offered
From All Gods Creatures Large and Small
And never put off saying I love you to
Family and Friends..
