  1. Psalm 36:6 (NRSV)
    Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.

    To My Friend,

    There are no words to describe the bond between an animal friend and our hearts. My heartfelt sadness for your heart. I pray Luther Jay Hawk is playing ball with the angels. He will be missed greatly.

    Take care,


    “An angel came to me one day,
    A ball of fur in hand.
    The angel gave the ball to me,
    As we stood there in the sand.
    She said to me, “It’s just a loan,
    For only a short time.”
    And she would surely return one day,
    For the ball of fur wasn’t mine.
    I looked down at the ball of fur,
    Two eyes stared back at me.
    I fell in love upon that day,
    As I held it close to me.
    Years went by and my love grew,
    As close friends we became.
    I looked down at my ball of fur,
    Life was never again the same.
    No matter where I found myself,
    My friend would be there, too.
    Then one day the angel came,
    I didn’t know what to do.
    She said that now the time had come,
    To take my friend back home.
    I watched her leave with tear filled eyes,
    As I remembered “It’s just a loan.”
