Tankie's actual paw print
Forever our very sweet boy, gentle giant...once in a lifetime best friend.
We haven’t taken a step without you by our side for the past 11 years.
You were not merely our pet, but our son and will always live on in our hearts.
We will be celebrating Tankie's life with a memorial service at the
Pet Angel Memorial Center - Broward Pet Cemetery
on Friday, March 12th at 2:30pm where Tankie's grave will be.
Rev. Juan Del Hierro will lead us in a prayer and guided meditation at Tankie's graveside.
The address is 11455 NW 8th St, Plantation, FL 33325.
We are very grateful that Tankie got to meet many of you (even flying across the U.S. to do so). We will definitely all see Tankie at the other end of the rainbow playing with his coconut. We are sure his tail is wagging and he is sitting on his Grandma's lap right now. We would love to have you all attend Tankie's ceremony to honor his life if you are able to.
Here are a few words we have written for our beautiful boy...
"Our beautiful Tankie.
Our gift from God.
You were our son, our best friend, our gentle protector, our healer and our Happiness. You blessed us with loyalty, devotion, love and joy that will never be forgotten. You made us better beings and taught us how to love. There is no other like you. Life without you will never be the same. Your cheerfulness and unconditional love gave us so much happiness. You will remain in our hearts forever.
Everyone you touched was blessed by your love.
You could not talk, but we knew you were wise. You stared into our souls and always knew how to make things better. Our lives feel empty, but remembering the magic that you brought everywhere you went fills our hearts. Your tail wagging, face licking, cuddling self and elegant galloping will remain in our hearts forever. Our little angel...we love you and miss you so much. You are in heaven now sweet boy...run, play and be free. Before you know it, you will be running back into our arms again. We love you. You are in our hearts forever."
Thank you all for your kind words and support.
