A tribute to my dear friend.....
May 20, 1996 - April 13, 2001
Heaven must have been a lonely place on April 13,2001, as that is the day..... Mr. Dillon was called to go home.
Dillons first family did not work out, so of course we bought him back without a doubt.
This little donkey wanted his own family, and along came a family from the other side of this continent, who wanted Dillon.... to live with them forever.... happily.
Tragedy struck our little friend, a rare disease they said. Tho valiant efforts of doctors & friends, little Dillon the donkey lost his fight on Good Friday April 13, 2001
It is the love & very specialness of this little donkey named Dillon, that brought 2 families from opposite sides of
together to mourn his leaving.
God bless you Dillon
We will always see your smiling eyes.....
I know my time is running out, for even a donkey must die,
But, may I share these thoughts with you, before we say
You've shown me love and tenderness and kept me safe from harm.
Your hands so gentle to the touch and for this lonely donkey a home.
I may not see the signs of spring or hear the little girls songs. But for a little while at least I knew that I did belong........
To a special place upon the earth where God had placed me to rest
And in my last moments of life I know that I had the best;
So to every donkey whose heart cries out for a friendly soft caress
Have faith that there is someone out there that will LOVE you dearly
And to them you were the BEST!
and Beth & family..
