Ogie was a huge part of a family friend's life for 16 years! That's right, Ogie lived to see his
Sweet 16th Birthday!
Unfortunately with age, comes illness. Ogie fought to live as long as he could until he knew it was time for him to go. He managed to see his Mommy turn 40 this year, just last month! Him and his mommy Ciara, were best friends! They did everything together and went everywhere together. Sadly, on Wednesday night, Ogie took a turn for the worst. Ciara knew it was time. Ogie had lived a long and happy life. Ciara did what was best for Ogie on October 1st, and let Ogie go to sleep. RIP Ogie. You will be missed by many. You will remain forever in our hearts.
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
