In Memory of Gizmo

GOD'S GARDEN
GOD LOOKED AROUND HIS
GARDEN AND FOUND AN EMPTY PLACE.
HE THEN LOOKED DOWN UPON
THE EARTH AND SAW YOUR TIRED
SWEET FACE. HE PUT HIS ARMS
AROUND YOU AND LIFTED YOU
TO REST; GOD'S GARDEN MUST
BE BEAUTIFUL, HE ALWAYS
TAKES THE BEST. HE KNEW
THAT YOU WERE SUFFERING;
HE KNEW YOU WERE IN PAIN,
HE KNEW THAT YOU WOULD
NEVER GET WELL ON EARTH AGAIN.
HE SAW THE ROAD WAS GETTING
ROUGH, THE HILLS WERE HARD
TO CLIMB, SO HE CLOSED YOUR
WEARY EYELIDS AND WHISPERED
"PEACE BE THINE". THEN HE
TOOK YOU UP TO HEAVEN
WITH HANDS SO GENTLE AND
KIND. IT BROKE OUR HEARTS
TO LOSE YOU BUT YOU DID NOT
GO ALONE, FOR PART OF US
WENT WITH YOU,
THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU BACK HOME.

and a note from Mo.....


I JUST WANTED...
I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU
KNOW THAT I MADE IT HOME.
THE JOURNEY WASN'T AN EASY
ONE, BUT IT DIDN'T TAKE TOO
LONG. EVERYTHING IS SO PRETTY
HERE; SO WHITE, SO FRESH SO
NEW; I WISH THAT YOU COULD
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND THAT YOU
COULD SEE IT TOO. PLEASE TRY
NOT TO BE SAD FOR ME. TRY TO
UNDERSTAND GOD IS TAKING
CARE OF ME...I'M IN THE SHELTER
OF HIS HANDS. HERE THERE IS NO
SADNESS, NO SORROW, AND NO
PAIN. HERE THERE IS NO WHIMPERING
AND I'LL NEVER HURT AGAIN.
HERE IT IS SO PEACEFUL WHEN
ALL THE ANGELS SING. I REALLY
HAVE TO GO FOR NOW...
I'VE GOT TO TRY ON MY WINGS.
