After a long struggle with her health, Aunty Ingrid passed away earlier today. She and her doggy Daffy had always been kind to us, especially when Keely went to the Bridge, so we couldn’t let this sad occasion go by without saying something about our dear friend.
One thing that really struck a cord with us was that Aunty had a wonderful gift – she had a way with words. She touched many with her words and brought comfort to those who grieved. She is silenced now but the poems she wrote will forever speak to us.
And so it is with a mixture of sadness, pleasure and gratitude that we reproduce a couple of our favourite poems here. Efurrytime we read them, we will remember Ingrid. Rest in Peace, Aunty *soft paw* and sleep sweet in Rainbow’s light.
When Pepi @PepiSmartDog died, Aunty Ingrid adapted a religious poem for the Bridge and sent to it Michelle, Pepi’s mum. This is the poem:
For those who are wondering, Daffy will be welcomed into the home of the pawsome Aunty Dana @danapixie, where we know she will be loved and treasured for the rest of her days.
