Independence "Indie" Valmain

July 4, 2003 - July 10, 2009

Dear God, thank You for sending us Indie and for allowing her to be with us for a time. She has been such a blessing to us, and our lives have been richer because You gave us the gift of one of Your creatures.

We are sad now, because our time with Indie has come to an end. It is a real loss to us, and our world does not seem as cheery and bright as it was. Be with us in our time of grief, dear God, and accept our mourning as a form of praise for this love that has enriched our lives. Amen.
