Obituary of Oliver McGrath

Please share a memory of Oliver to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

We rescued Oliver from the Brandywine SPCA in the spring of 2012. He was only five months old and immediately stole our hearts. We have had many dogs in our lives, and they are all exceptional in many ways, but Oliver was very different. He was so much part of our lives and always had a smile on his face, even through the last two years as he struggled with liver cancer. We are so grateful to have him in our lives; two years past diagnosis was undoubtedly a gift. He will never be forgotten, and we know that not only did we rescue him, he indeed saved us.

When golden eyes no longer glow,
and we both know it’s time to go,

Don’t look at me with eyes so sad,
but think of better times we had,

When sunlight did upon us shine,
and happy days were yours and mine,

And through the grass we both did run,
and on our backs we felt the sun,

Think not of this dark final hour,
think not of when our lives turned sour,

Think not of hopelessness and pain,
but think of joy and laugh again,

For in that final act of love,
you released me to heaven above,

Where finally from pain I’m free,
where one day you will join with me,

Where together again we will rejoice,
and you and I as with one voice,

Will in perfect harmony sing,
of the joy and pain that love can bring,

And remember me just as I will,
always think of you until,

At last again I see your face,
grieve not, I am in a better place.
