LOVED YOU BEST
By Jim Willis
In loving memory of Lily – who I love so much. Lily will be greatly missed and be in my hearts forever. LILY IS THE WORLDS GREATEST DOG!
Lily, you were my faithful friend, and loyal companion; I say farewell to you now. You kept me warm at night, protected my home and offered me unconditional love. For this I am thankful, and know that you were a blessing in my life. For the time we spent together I am grateful, and I will remember you always. Bianca misses you too!
I know that I will rescue other pets, and I will love them and cherish them too. But there is place in my heart that belongs only to you, and no one will ever fill it.
So this is where we part, My Friend,
and you'll run on, around the bend,
gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.
I will go on. I'll find the strength,
life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
will remember well all you've taught.
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
take with you this....I loved you best.
A Dog for Jesus
(Where dogs go when they die)
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog.
As loyal and loving as mine.
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog,
Would have followed Him all through the day.
While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well
And knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away.
To face death alone and apart.
With no tender dog following close behind,
To comfort its Master’s Heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn,
How happy He would have been,
As His dog kissed His hand and barked it’s delight,
For The One who died for all men.
Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him Lily,
The old pal so dear to me.
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone,
Knowing they’re in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through,
Wherever my road inclined,
Four feet said, “Wait, I’m coming with you!”
And trotted along behind.

Lily and her little sister Bianca. The two most precious things in my life.
I Only Wanted You
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
an heartache make a lane,
I'd walk that path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
Lily in her big bed
How I miss the little tounge hanging out, how I miss the kisses.
YOU WERE THE WORLDS GREATES DOG.....I MISS YOU!
Me and my little girl on her 13th birthday. IF I ONLY KNEW SHE HAD LESS THAN A YEAR LEFT - I NEVER WOULD HAVE LET HER GO. How I miss her, not a day goes by that I don't cry.
I WALK ALONE
We've walked a special walk
down life's rocky road.
We've had special talks,
to you many secrets I have told.
We've shared all we had to share,
no better friend could I have had.
You never needed explanations,
my moods you knew from sad to glad.
With you there, I was never alone,
I'll always remember your "welcome homes".
I look at the path that we used to walk,
where sometimes we'd stop to just sit and talk.
For hours we'd sit and you'd just listen,
so still by my side as I told of my day.
So patient you were as I babbled on
and I knew you preferred to go run and play.
As I look down the path we used to walk,
I see you there where we sat and talked.
Even your paw print preserved in the earth,
there to remind me of your hearts worth.
Never again will I have such a friend
and I wonder inside will my heart ever mend?
Words lost now for the pains so deep, so well honed.
To walk life's path now means, I walk alone.
