Every day we will live with the wonderful memories of our beloved Regis, he was one special pup. He will always be in our hearts. |
To those I love and those who love me:
When I am gone, release me, let me go;
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many beautiful years.
I gave to you my love.
You can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
but now it's time I travel on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
so bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near.
And if you listen with your heart you'll hear all
my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll be there to greet you.
I am so thankful I can express my thoughts and cry here and it's all right. Mowing the grass today I looked for you when I didn't see you under your tree. Then I remembered you wouldn't be there any more. We miss you so much, you brought so much happiness and love to us. Don't think the pain will ever leave; you gave so much to us! Will always love you and remember those special times.
Our dear little puppy, we still hurt over you. You are so missed in our lives. Every area of this house is a reminder of you, I still look for you in your places of comfort. I still look to take outside when I get the mail or mow the yard. You will be always be on our hearts. Love you Gandma
It's been almost 2 months since you had to leave. Still hard to think of you without crying. Found some of your hairs today under the chair, so hurt not having you here.
Calvin still looks for you and calls to you. He misses his buddy! He had a special love him, gave him comfort when he was just a kitten. We all miss you!
Hard to believe you have been gone 4 months, our hearts still break when we remember you. Every day there are reminders of you here. Where you laid under the table or by the bed. The way you asked for snacks, and the way you loved to play with the flippy flopper. You loved the snow, always running after snow balls! We will never have another pup, you took that part of our heart with you!
Lisa came home on leave 1/23; coming here was really hard for her too. She couldn't come over the first week, finally she came over and said it's not the same without her baby boy!
I'm not gonna visit here much, it hurts so much! You will also be in my heart, we will always love you and miss you!
I keep telling myself that you are a happier pup now, not suffering!
4 months since you went to live with Jesus. I know you are a happy pup there with Him. We are still hurting, we miss you so much. Every where we look, everything we do is a reminder of you. I still have some of your toys, just can't let go of them. Calvin walks around meowing for his buddy, not understanding why you are not here.
Lisa came home on leave and wouldn't come over the first week. I know it was hard on her. We love you (and I say love not loved because we will always love you), you claimed a big part of our hearts! Rest now our little boy, you are in the best care possible. One day we will come to you and we will be together again!
7 months since you left on your journey. I know you are happy there, no more pain! We miss you so much, every where I look; I remember you being there. Each night I remember you asking for your snack. You are a special memory in my heart
Our sweet little pup, so hard to believe you have been away for a year. I know we need to release you from earthly ties, so you can go on to that special place. It's just so hard not to think of you. You are (were) such a special pup and you left sure a hole in our hearts. I know I can not give my heart to another companion. Our heart belongs to you and one day we will all be together again!
Hope you have found little Hobo; she was a good cat and took good care of you as your were learning your new family.
Sweet puppy, there will never be another pup as you, we love you and always will.
There will never be a friend as true, to walk by my side as I had with you.
You had your own way to touch my heart, in every happy day, you played an important part.
Beneath the dinner table, with hopeful eyes you'd sit, waiting for me to notice and give you a little bit.
Your devilish antics never failed to bring a smile, but now that you're not here, I miss your playful style.
They say that time heals the wounds left by those that are gone, all I know is that with me,
your memory will live on.
Never forgetting you, always in my heart!
Little pup you are still so missed, can't think of you without tears in my eyes. When will this pain go way?
Baby Boy, got some sad news before Christmas. Granddaddy has colon cancer that has spread to his liver. We have heard several positive stories, and we are praying he will be one of those stories. We know God is with us and whatever happens, it is His plan. Regis, I wish you were here to cheer granddad up, your loving face always made him smile. We miss you Baby Boy, we know you are in a better place with our Lord Jesus.
Baby Boy, keeping you in our hearts, still hurts knowing you won't be here at home when we walk in. The void you left in our hearts grows bigger every day and we have been thinking of adopting another puppy in the next year or two. We want to make sure this is what we want, a new puppy will never replace our love for you. You will always be in our hearts.
Grand dad got wonderful news the other day; the surgery on his colon was successful. All the cancer has been removed from that area. He has 3 places on his liver that will be dealt with now. We know God's hand is on him and healing him more each day...
Our sweet Baby Boy, will we ever get over not having you here with us? I don't think we will, no a day goes by that we don't think of you; found some of your fur the other day cleaning. Broke my heart all over! I don't know if I can ever love another pup as I loved you. Last year we adopted a kitten, Josie. You would enjoy playing with her, she is one busy little girl. Calvin has finally started getting along with her, he still has his moments of hissing. He misses you too, and Cinco misses you when he comes for a visit.
Grandad is scheduled for more surgery next month at UVA...
Baby Boy, I know your days in heaven are perfect! Regis, granddaddy was a sick man back in Oct when he had his liver surgery. He was in ICU for 21 days; after 23 days in the hospital we finally came home. Baby I stayed with him and helped him 24/7. The doctor got all that cancer and declared him cancer free! Praise God that cancer was gone; but this past Monday he had a CT scan and a tumor was found on his brain. He is having surgery Thursday to remove the tumor, then he will have PT & radiation. Baby boy, I'm scared; always trusting God! I know God is with us, and bring us through this one too.
Baby Boy, we still missing your sweet face and devotion! We have been talking about adopting a pup; maybe another Sheltie or English Lab. I just don't know if I can give my heart to another pup, you stole our hearts, don't know if we are ready to share our hearts with another one. I think we would always compare it to you! Regis, love you and miss you.
Until next time Baby Boy; always on our hearts...
Little Pup, granddad did great with his surgery. You wouldn't like his hair being so short until you got use to it; like when he shaved his beard! You were so funny barking at him, wanting to go to go him but not sure if it was him. You always brought a smile to our face; even at our saddest times. So granddad is taking radiation treatment now; he has done 9 of 15. Sometimes I get so scared of the future; I don't know how I'd manage life alone. I'm sure God would provide the way.
Regis, there isn't a day that goes by that something doesn't remind us of you! I don't think we are ever going to get over the pain of not having our "little pup."
Calvin and Josie are getting along really well finally. We miss Cinco since he has gone back home. We go check on him when Lisa goes out of town. Not the same as having him here; I remember when he was just a little kitten in GA. You weren't sure of that little thing! We left the two of you for a couple of hours while Lisa showed us around the base; when we got back the back door was open and the two of you were laying inside sleeping. Neither one of you left the room!!! Just one of my wonderful memories.
Love you pup, I'll be back here later...
Sweet Regis, today is the anniversary of your going home. Our hearts are still heavy that you are not here with us, every where I look I remember something about you being there or doing something. I go outside and see you in my heart running after your flippy flopper, laying under the cherry tree as I mow the grass, chasing the squirrels or chipmunks out back, or just laying on the grass as I sit beside you rubbing you. Your Granddad can't get over you not being at the top of the steps when we walk in to greet us! Or of the little things you did to make our life special, my heart is aching so much. I keep wondering if a puppy would help heal this void I have. I feel like that would be a betrayal of our love to you.
Four years you have been in Rainbow Gardens waiting for us. Some days I pray I can join you to escape the burdens of this life, but I can't leave Mike, Stacey or Lisa until Jesus calls me home. I'll stop at the gate and get you, then we can sit at Jesus feet together and wait for our family to join us. I miss you so much baby boy. We love you, I'll be back soon...
Sweet little Regis, it's been a while since I've visited. So much has been going on lately, I often wish you were here for me to hug and forget what's been going on. Another brain tumor was found in your Granddad, he had surgery on 1/23/14. The swelling has affected his left side; he has to wear a brace for now to walk with a walker and his left arm is regaining strength slowly. Baby boy we were in the hospital 42 days; if you had been here we would have been crazy with worry for you, even though we know your momma Lisa would have taken wonderful care of you.
I know you wait for us, but I just can't bare the thought of not having your Granddad here with us. When God is ready for us to come get you and take you on with us to our new home, we will be together again. Until then please wait patiently and be the wonderful pup I know you have always been. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you and miss you. Always on our hearts ...
Hi Baby Boy, you are never far from our hearts. We still brag on how you were such a loving pup. Regis, things aren't looking good for Granddad. Two more brain tumors were discovered in May, these can't be operated on and he can't have radiation now. No more treatments for Granddad, we had to call hospice to come and manage his pain. He is in so much pain baby; I'm afraid he isn't gonna be with us much longer. I told him to take Jesus hand when He comes for him, and to stop and pick you up along the way.
Regis I don't know what I'm going to do without Granddad. I am so afraid, I won't have anyone to talk to except the cats. I miss your sweet face and bright eyes so much.
We love you baby, you are always on our hearts. . .
REGIS's People Parent(s), LISA, MIKE, KATHY, would appreciate knowing you have visited their REGIS's Memorial Residency.
