I'd like to imagine that Suka's departure was as much fun and as big of an adventure that he so enjoyed in life. As he was laying outside in the cool air, thinking about his days of chasing those bunnies across the river bed and fields he so loved, he spotted a beautiful rainbow glistening in the distance. Suka decided to follow it...all the way to the most beautiful of places - a snow-covered pasture beyond the Rainbow Bridge, where he is now happy and healthy, feeling the cold, sparkling snow that he loved so much falling all about him.

(In Loving Memory of Isolde Jenkins)
Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
Dear Suka, saying good-bye is never easy, so instead we we will celebrate having been able to get to know you and for your Hu-Mom K sharing you with us. The FiveSibes are sending soft woos heavenward to you and hugs to K.
The sad fact is that we never know how long we will be blessed to have our beloved companions by our side...and each day is indeed a blessing for all they bring to our lives. I'm giving my Sibe kids an extra dose of hugs today in Suka's memory, a memory that will shine on forever in Bloggerville amongst us friends.
