In Memory of Alexis

Little Alex passed away yesterday and a light has gone out of our lives. She is now running and playing with Jesse in a sunny, green place where there is no pain or sorrow. We love you Alex, and hold you close to our hearts until we meet you and Jesse again.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...

I'm so, so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how it feels to lose a beloved pet and hope that your heart isn't as sore soon. Many hugs!
