Good Bye My Friend #1/3

Posted by
Ralf Kesper (Fröndenberg, Germany) on 9 June 2019 in Animal & Insect.

My Elvis crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday after nearly 18 years.
Ich hoffe, Du hast ein schönes Plätzchen im Himmel gefunden und auch unsere Zara wieder getroffen.
Irgendwann kommen auch wir wieder zusammen. Bis dahin halt die Ohren steif, mein treuer alter Gefährte.

Each one of us have or had a Friend like your Elvis,Ralf,and each time, it's a "Crève-Coeur" when they cross the "Rainbow Bridge" ...So Many complicities..The souvenirs of Tender and harder moments together ...Instants of Head to Head with them,as they were our confidents,sometimes .....They are members of the Family and Best Friends,frequently ......Just imagine where it goes his a better place and the beginning of a New Eternity for it ......Cause their presence is Eternal in our Hearts ....Sorry for you,but the Road goes on,Friend .....

Leslie from Brussels, Belgium

Godspeed Elvis….he seems a jovial soul (maybe a trickster?) with such kind eyes.

No doubt, faithful to be beside his man. Looking for the next adventure. I bet he will continue to talk to you in your dreams, look for him there. My warmest heart filled wishes Ralf for you in this ‘see you later moment’ — it is a life expanding experience many of us share (filled with deep emotion and reflection.)

this face would light up my life every day. His gift to you. I really believe no coincidence that dog is spelled god backwards.

J'ai la réponse : Elvis. 18 ans d'amour humain/animal, c'est tant, déjà, et si beau ! Pensées émues.
