We will miss seeing Eddie on his daily walks. He always had time to stop and talk during his walks, and it never looked like it was either too cold or too hot for him and Jasper.

Aunt Diane, I am so sorry you are hurting. I want to remind you of a better time coming. Revelation 21:4, He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. And for now, Psalm 61:1-2, Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. I pray for you comfort and peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding, and that only our King can provide. I love you.
