    Default a great warrior was laid to rest.

    Jack-
    All your life, you did everything anyone ever asked of you.
    Although you never found your own family, I want you to know you were very much a part of ours in the short time we had you.

    Your courage was humbling, and I hope to be as brave everyday in my life as you were in yours.

    I will keep the promise I made to you yesterday as your life slipped away. I will find you over the bridge someday.

    No more pain big guy - you run with 4 good ankles now, and no tummy pain.

    I am honored to have known you.

    You're with me every moment, my big red horse.

    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting a battle of some kind.

    Thank you all so much. We struggled with this decision, but I remembered something all of you have taught me. Better a week too soon than a moment too late.

    So true. He was lucky to have such a courageous owner prepared to make that decision for him, you may have only had him a short while; but you had him for a reason.
