he indicated that it was his time to go and went peacefully. My father passed away a few months ago and the same life/death decisions had to be made. I'm glad that God and Rudy removed that cup from me and allowed Rudy to transition on his own terms.
By Diana Macalintal, Saying Goodbye to a Dying Pet
who created you and all the animals,
in the name of Jesus the Son,
who spoke of you in parables and stories,
in the name of the Holy Spirit,
in whom every creature lives, moves, and has their being,
go now in peace, dear friend.
may you lie in cool, green pastures,
and may you warm yourself under the sun that never sets.
my shadow and confidante,
my comfort and playmate.
You filled my days with life and brought me endless joy.
For this I give thanks to God who gave you to me.
as you waited for me at the end of each day.
Let there be no more suffering.
Let there be only light as it was on the day God created you.
Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever. Amen.
