Harley our beautiful boy, thank you for fourteen years of laughter and love. We are deeply grateful to you for being such a constant and bright light of joy to us. Thank you for accepting Elvis into our family with such ease and grace. Thank you for teaching him how to be a Bulldog in the grandest fashion just like you, his devoted big brother. |
Thank you for all the smiles and cozy warm hugs. Thank you for teaching me the fine art of "napping". Thank you for showing us that life is meant to be lived in the now, to be present in each moment, because that moment may be all we have.
Thank you for making us roar with laughter and when sad times came thank you for kissing away our tears.
Thank you Harley, for tearing open your Christmas presents and everyone else's too. Thank you for playing soccer with the kids in the neighborhood, we loved when they knocked on our door and asked "can Harley come out and play?". We loved that you played for both teams at once and always ended up stealing the ball -- your skills were legendary.
Daddy and I loved watching you dazzle us still, for even in old age you never could resist a ball. Maybe you moved a little slower but you had never lost your touch.
Thank you Harley for giving us so many amazing and wonderful times. Thank you for leaving behind an ocean of memories where we can visit you and love you over and over again.
Thank you for being our rock through the hard times, thank you for never leaving my side, thank you for seeing me through cancer. Harley, thank you for being my dearest companion and very best friend. Although you're not here, we know that you're in a place where you'll always be, forever young, forever beautiful and forever free.
Harley, your passing has changed our lives, but we still feel you all around us, we breathe you in with every breath we take. You're just living inside our hearts now, and you'll live there forever.
Thank you old friend, we love you.
