Kai-La-Sha Alright Alreddy 11/06/97 – 3/21/11

While you may have received this privately from Vickie, it’s something I want kept on the blog. Vickie approached me years ago, possibly before Ali came to me. She wanted a female puppy for a pet. Those can be hard to come by! When I decided to place Ali, she went to live with Alan and Vickie. Ali opened the door to one of my treasured friendships.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the thousands winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush.
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

From Vickie:

A toast … to a new star in the heavens tonight.  A beautiful, shining red star.  It is, indeed, fitting that we raise a glass of red wine honor her memory.  Or, perhaps, to drown our sorrow at her passing.  What she added to our lives cannot be measured except by the heart.

Fly now, once again whole, to the high and ancient mountains … the ancestral home beckons.
