I have always loved my dearest Elma with all my heart but I am so saddened for her family as they grieve for their loss. Elma was such a loving girl who was blessed to have been taken in by the best family in the world. She was strong, stoic, determined, and loving. She has not only left pawprints on the hearts of her family but also with all those who were blessed enough to have known her. She will be greatly missed by her family but also greatly welcomed at the Rainbow Bridge. A beautiful Angel with the most beautiful loving heart to match.
I found this on the Internet For You, My Dearest Elma. It seems pretty fitting for us both.
The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
