 Riley Passed Away Yesterday ~ Photo by Patrice

Riley passed away
his beating heart stopped
his breath ceased to be
only memories
memories that is all we have
you see.

A gentle, kind, wondrous guy
knowing, knowledgeable
a smile on his face
devoted beyond belief
this was Riley
who now has been.

He passed away, passed away
rest in peace sweet Riley
you were loved and loved

  1. So sorry to read this. He brought you love and joy which memory you will always have.


    • Thank so much Judith.
      He was my husband’s brothers’ family dog. He was special and so missed by them all.
      We would have family holidays at a cottage and our dogs always came too. They were another layer of kids – playing, retrieving balls in the water, running, hiking – all together. Even fisticuffs at times – Ceile BAD dog!!! They were special times and that is what I remember about sweet Riley.
