AwAreness: Man’s Best Friend

Posted in Gypsy Carns on August 2, 2010 by Gypsy Carns

With a heavy heart I share the news of my best friend’s passing, my buddy for the past 13 years – Jake Carns. He has been with Caroline and I since the first year of our marriage. He passed away on the 28th and we miss him deeply. A more loveable, sweet, and loyal animal I have never known. He was like a son to me. 

Sometimes we don’t appreciate our blessings fully until they are taken away.  I encourage us all to dwell in the present with our relationships; enjoy our pets, spouse, family, kids, and friends.   I wrote this eulogy for Jake and wanted to share it with you all.   His photo is on my website ( www.gypsycarns.com) and my FB page.

JAKE IS YOUR NAME
9/19/97 – 7/28/10

My heart is surely breaking,
Over my friend’s demise.
His body, bruised and aching,
Yet he wore a smile’s disguise.

Friend of mine, I’ll not replace you.
The sands of time will not erase you.
Your dedication I will proclaim,
Jake Is Your Name.

From birth your heart beat fast,
You run like the wind.
Your body could not last,
But your memory will never end.

Friend of mine, I’ll not replace you.
The sands of time will not erase you.
Your dedication I will proclaim,
Jake Is Your Name.

Goodbye to this life, blessed and sweet,
Hello salvation, you are made whole.
On the other side we will meet,
When death seeks out my soul.

Friend of mine, I’ll not replace you.
The sands of time will not erase you.
Your dedication I will proclaim,
Jake Is Your Name.
