Ace was with us for almost 20 years and we considered him part of our family. We will miss him dearly and never forget him - from his energy, spirit, excitement and the wonderful friend he was to us all, especially to his “grandmother Lydia” whom he meant so much to.
They Will Not Go Quietly
They will not go quietly,
the pets who’ve shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still can make us think
we hear them at the door
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them…
and always will.
