Carla- There is a special ballard that seems so appropriate in your time of need to honor and reflect on your best friend, Sweet Adaline. I am so deeply sorry for the loss of a very very special great 'Dane'.
*In the evening when I sit alone a-dreaming
Of days gone by, love, to me so dear,
There's a picture that in fancy oft' appearing,
Brings back the time, love, when you were near.
It is then I wonder where you are, my darling,
And if your heart to me is still the same.
For the sighing wind and nightingale a-singing
Are breathing only your own sweet name.
Sweet Adeline, (My Adeline,)
My Adeline, (My Adeline,)
At night, dear heart, (At night, dear heart,)
For you I pine. (For you I pine.)
In all my dreams, (In all my dreams,)
Your fair face beams. (Your fair face beams.)
You're the flower of my heart,
*Sweet Adeline. (My Adeline.)
I've left a satiny-soft pillow at her resting place--slumber in peace, Dearest.
