Alfie left our lives in Dec 2008, he had fought a very brave battle with Leukemia and finally gave up his fight. Alfie was my constant shadow and a loyal protector, i learnt so much from this brave boy and a piece of me left with him on that sad day. He was 'a once in a lifetime' dog. It was an absolute pleasure to have known him and shared my life with him.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there , i do not sleep,
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow,
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain,
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the beautiful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight
I am the starshine of the night,
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there , i do not die.
