A loved one is never truly gone until they are forgotten, live in the hearts of those left behind is to live forever!



Yacanto Dancing Leaves ("Shelby")

Sadly died on the 11th May 2002. She had been suffering with Cardiamyopathy for the last 6 months of her life, with treatment she had a good quality of life. She died in the early hours of the morning, peacefully in her sleep on her bed, in our bedroom. Shelby was a "Dane with a brain" so clever!!!! She is missed terribly by all of us, especially her house mate Laura. Below is a little verse that says it all...

My Little pet

God gives us lovely animals,
of our family they're a part
But when they go, they always
take a little of our heart

My little friend I miss you
And wish you were still here
I loved the way you snuggled up
Wanting to stay near

If only I could thank you
for the pleasure that you gave
I will never forget the love
You brought into each day

Forever remembered by Barbara, Jimmy and family.
