Always asleep in my heart - 2016
by Donna Hovey
Hoping that your 2nd New Year at Rainbow bridge was a Happy One. Miss you like crazy here,
and miss seeing you sitting under the woodstove. You would be all cozied up. Not a day
go's by that you are not on my mind! I love you my little man. xxoo

02/09/16 One year/9 months, still seems so vivid.Time flys, but doesn't heal.:(

02/14/16 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY MY LOVE! You are spending it with the best of company! Your pawprint
on my heart today is beating extra hard. I love you my little man. <3 Momma

02/21/16 My Dearest Buckwheat... Did you know they say:
A True friend leaves pawprints on your heart? That my friend you have done a
thousand times fold. I love you. xxoo

02/23/16 "Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence, and
absence to value presence." Thinking of you today my little pumpkin eater.<3

02/27/16 The sun is out,& shining just the way that you liked it. It still seems empty without
you here. Vinny is close-by,however, he is nothing like you & maybe that isn't how I should
be looking at it, as I know He loves me like you did, but it's a different kind of love.
He is not as affectinate as you were, but maybe I should give it time...He is only gonna be
two in May. You are near even if I don't see You. You are with me, even if you are far away.
You are in my heart, in my thoughts, and in my life.....always. xxoo

03/17/16 HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY MY LITTLE FOUR LEAF CLOVER!!! Hope that you are celebrating with all the
Irish Furbabies at R.B. You have made me feel like the luckiest person to have shared so
many years with you. If only everybody would really realize how lucky I was. You were a
a blessing that could outnumber all the shamrocks that grow. Death leaves a heartache no one
can heal,love leaves a memory that no one can steal!
Until we meet again my little one, may God hold you in the palm of his hand! I LOVE YOU>

03/28/16 HAPPY EASTER MY LITTLE PUMPKIN EATER.......I am thinking you of today as always and knowing
that you are in the best place you can be and sharing it with such wonderful people. I know
all the angels are incredible good to you, as you are as special to them as you are to me.
The will of God will never take you to where the grace of God cannot protect you. Happy Easter
my little man, I love You My Buckwheat!! xxxooo Momma

It is so hard to believe 2 years have passed. It still seems like just yesterday.Your pawprint
is in good keeps on my heart! Here is a birthday quote for you with love......
"God saw that you were getting tired and a cure was not to be...
So he put His arms around you, and whispered "Come Home to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away
and though we loved your dearly, we could not make You stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating, your tired paws put to rest,
God broke out hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

You are my special little man, still are and will always be. You have brought so much joy
and love to me, and now, you are one on God's special angels. I love you My Buckwheat!

04/09/16 Good Morning My Dearest Buckwheat.....I can't believe that today is the 2nd anniversary that You
are at R.B. Is still seems so vivid to me like it was yesterday. They say time heals all things
but my heart is still aching. I miss you just as much today as I did 2 years ago.
Although the world keeps turning, and the sun comes up each day,
Life has never been the same, Since you were called away.
You were such a special puppy, so gentle, good and kind,
And have left the sweetest memories and thoughts of you behind.
I only wish there was a way that I could see you one more time,
To thank you for ALL the joy you brought into this life of mine!


04/22/16 Good morning my little man. The weather is starting to warm up and the crabapple tree is
starting to get it's buds. Oh, how you loved that tree!
Thinking of You today, wishing you were here.
Remembering you with smiles and love and an ocean full of tears.....
In our language there is NO WORD FOR GOODBYE. The closest word is I"LL SEE YOU AGAIN!!!
LOVE YOU BABY BUCK....................... Momma :(

04/26/16 My little Buckwheat....I close my eyes and speak to you in a thousand silent words.
I remember You in a thousand different ways. In the morning, at night when I look at the stars,
a special day, a song, a place or a smell. You are there! xxoo

05/01/16 HAPPY MAY DAY MY LITTLE ONE.....In the quiet of the night, when the world around me is asleep,
the tears still flow freely as your memories flood my heart and mind. It is then that the
silence and stillness remind me of YOU!!!! I LOVE YOU LITTLE MAN..... XXOOO Mom

05/09/16 My Little Buckwheat....Another month has passed and it still seems like yesterday! So vivid and
my heart still has your pawprint tucked away in a safe place. Your are always on my mind! I would
like to leave a poem with you it is called "If Roses Grow in Heaven."

If Roses Grow in Heaven, Lord pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Buckwheat's paws, and tell him they are from me.
Tell him I love him and miss him and when he turns to smile, place a kiss upon his cheek,
and hold him for a while.
Because remembering him is easy, I do it every day, But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away. All my love to You My precious Buckwheat. xxoo

5/30/16 My little is Memorial Day, & for you it is Memorial Day everyday! You are in my heart
always! I thought of You today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days
before that too. I think of You in silence I often speak your name. All I have is memories and many
pictures in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in His arms,
I have you in my heart! I love you my Buckwheat... xxoo Momma

6/06/16 My Buckwheat......I don't know where the 2 years have flown. It still seems just like yesterday.
I still feel your pawprint beating on my heart every day!
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, You were loved beyond words,and missed beyond
measure. I love you my little man! <3 momma

06/17/16 Even after all this time, I still can't believe that You are gone.
Love you my little Buckwheat xxoo

06/27/16 Hello Buck. Your love still shines bright...LOVE IS FOREVER! Because we can't be
together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever! xxoo Momma


07/04/16 HAPPY 4TH OF JULY LITTLE BUCK. ... I am thinking of you with a thoughtful heart.
Legend has it that dragonflies were given an extra set of wings so that angels like you
could ride on their back, smaller than small, so whenever I see a winged masterpiece, I am
certain that you ARE that angel that has come down from heaven to visit me. I love you! <3

07/15/16 Dearest little Buckwheat.....As I was mowing yesterday, I saw the most beautiful and huge
dragonfly circle me, and I knew right there it was YOU coming down to visit me! I look up to
the sky and talk to YOU!. What I wouldn't give to hear you BARK back. We had a special life
long bond that is unexplainable. No-one would truely understand, but my heart feels it always!
I love You my Little Man..... xxoo Momma

07/29/16 Thinking of you my little man as this month is almost to it's end. I know you are counting
stars and chasing moonbeams! I look at the stars, and I know you are on Heaven's Boulevard.
I love you my little munchkin. xx00

08/01/16 My precious little man.... On 7/29/16 Clara Francis came to R.B. Could you please find her
and take her under your wing for safe keeping till we are all reunited again. She is precious
and I know you will love her! Watch over her family too. Even after all this time, I STILL
can't believe you are not by my side! Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your
mind already knows. I love you my little pumpkin eater xxoo Momma <3

08/04/16 I LOVE YOU!

08/09/16 Well my little man.....2 years and 4 months heart still tells me it was yesterday!
If I could visit heaven, Even for a day, Maybe for a moment, the pain would go away..
I'de put my arms around you,and whisper words so true, that living life without you, is the
hardest thing to do. No matter how I spend my days, no matter what I do, No morning dawns or
evening falls, that I don't think,of you! The two things I do know: I love You, and I miss you
so much my heart hurts. I love you baby Buckwheat! xxooo Momma

09/09/16 Dearest Buckwheat, It is so hard to believe it has been 2 years and 5 months already. It
still feels like yesterday, and probably always will. I know your presence is around me.
I know you sleep in heaven, and up there dream of me. Waiting there for those you love, until
together we will be. I know that you're not lonely, in company of angels above, watching over
and protecting, those left behind you love. Love you to the moon & back my sweetie. <3

09/11/16 The Last Good by is the hardest to say. Behind my smile there's a story no one would
understand.I Love you Buckwheat. xxoo Momma

09/22/16 Well my little is the first day of autumn! Your kind of weather. The sun
was out, but them temps were warm. Thought of you all day! When someone is in your heart,
They're never truey gone. They can come back to you even at unlikely times.....Crying is a way
my eyes speak when my mouth can't explain how broken my heart is! Love to you little man.


10/09/2016 My dearest little pumpkin.....I still can't believe that it has been 2-1/2 years.
It still seems like yesterday, and yes, so vivid!
Time is suppose to heal, however, I still feel the void in my heart.
The most powerful tears are not the ones that fall from your eyes and cover your face.....
It's the ones that fall from your heart and cover your soul!! I miss you so much my little
Buckwheat. You were an angel sent to me from God, and now you have returned back to Him.
I have many happy memories with You on my heart. I LOVE YOU!!! xxooo Momma

12/25/16 MERRY CHRISTMAS MY LITTLE MAN!You are spending Christmas in the best of Company. My heart

heart! Please share your love with GrettaRose,ClaraFrances,RileySteven and MatildaNoel!!!

12/31/16 Well my little pumpkin 12:01 am a new year will begin! Another year has gone by,

it with me, until we meet again in eternity. Run and play until we meet again. Whoever you hold
in the heart of is forever and always a part of you.(P & K)
I love you my Buckwheat.
