A Tribute To A Beloved Family Friend
"Ode To Brody" by Brenda Henderson
You were more than just a dog;

Faithful, Steadfast and True;

A Loyal Companion who helped me muddle through that I could tell my troubles to;

Whenever I felt lonely or sad embattled by the fray;

Your Loving, Playful Spirit would bring Sunshine to my day!

I had to put you down and pack all your things away;

They were just too much of a reminder; I couldn't bear to look at them every day!

But each time that I think of you I find strength in GOD to smile through my tears.

Because I can gently trace the paw prints you left in my heart over the years.

They say they'll give me an urn that they'll place your ashes into;

And I'll place near it a photo; one that I Love Best of You!

But Dearest Brody I know we'll never really be apart;

Because the Image of You and the Love we shared are etched

Forever in My Heart!
