Default Frankie

Frankie, 03/2003 - 01/29/14

The other night while I was out of town, Frankie passed away.
Just six weeks shy of turning eleven, she found it time to go.

Lymphoma is a silent killer and it slowly destroyed her cell by cell.
We knew the time was coming soon when I'd have to make a choice. She must have wanted to spare me that burden and though I didn't
know it at the time, she was saying goodbye as I walked out the door.

We had those years and great ones they were but the time slipped top quickly by. All her family human and canine alike, mourn her passing and I at least know she is at last pain and trouble free and running with those who went before her. And there a several of them.

Her ashes remain and in time, will join me in my eternal rest. Rest in peace my little one 'cause it won't be too long 'till we are reunited.

Know that you will always be missed. Until a better day .

In death as in life.

Condolences to you and your family - human and animal - on Frankie's passing. I believe I had the pleasure of meeting her once at the horse fest in Rockford.

Godspeed Frankie.

Lovely memorial, Rick. Sounds like she was as lucky having you for her owner as you were having her. So sorry for your loss.

Rick, I am so sorry to read about Frankie....
It sucks when they hide it so much that you miss the signs. I sure do hope you are OK with the goodbye she provided you....

Godspeed Frankie, you were definitely loved!
