    Liz, it was two years ago today that I sat in the barn with you and you put your head in my lap. I new you were in pain and you really wanted to go on to greener pastures. I told you to go out side where it was cooler and just let go. Go on and be free of pain and frolic in the pasture and run and run free forever. She did just that and she laid down where she could see the other goats. She laid her head down and was gone in about 10 minutes.

    I know it is not right to cry today for you but I do. I know you are so much better off and you are free. I just think about you every day and really cry on the anniversary of the day you went on. August 25th. Liz I will forever love you and you will NEVER EVER BE FORGOTTEN.

    Liz, as you already know I got your Grand daughter Gracie Lou back to live with me. She is so you and has your adorable face.

    My Liz lived with us for 5 years. She was given to us by a dear friend, and she was Grand Champion or reserve champion at every show we went to every year. She was 15 years old and had twins when she was14. We did not bred her the last year even thought she so wanted to be bred. She was always trying to get in with the bucks. She took on her grand kids and was like a mother to them. She died of bone cancer

    Thanks guys.

    Am I weird? When I got home last night I sat at her grave and talked to her. I really felt like she new I was there.

    I know this was just a goat but she really new how to pull at my heart. Those eyes were the best.

    When a 2 or 4 legged creature you hold dear leaves this world, it is only their body that is gone. I believe their spirit stays with you and when you take moments like you have to remember them, that's when you can still "feel" their presence.
