Raven Shadow went to play with Sammy at approximately 11:30 this morning. He is survived by his new brother Jack and newer sister Willow and two loving human parents. Mary was not able to be there but she was there in thought and prayer. Our hearts are very heavy once again. Raven has been a part of our lives almost our entire marriage! We have very little memories that don't include him, and are going to miss him terribly. He was very independent and strong. We called him our little box of nails. In his youth we've never seen a dog so crazy for ball, that was his most favorite thing to do; to run and fetch! To him that was what life was all about. In his elderly years, because he was such a box of nails, he pushed and pushed himself unaided to be independent and to still be his own dog. He was never much of a kisser, unless you had popcorn, but showed his unconditional love simply with a look that was unmistakable. He had the most beautiful coat of fur that, after a bath, would hold the shampoo fragrance for weeks afterward. We are thankful today as well, thankful for Raven to have been a part of our lives for so long, and that we knew him and that he knew us.
Goodbye my old friend, let Sammy know we still miss and love him too. Goodbye my best buddy, I will long to see you again. I 'am glad that I was there for you all the days of your life and unto the very end.
I bet your playing ball right now, are you?
We love you Raven!
Love, your mommy and daddy.

P.S. Mary once said that when Raven passes it will be an end of an era, and it truly is!

I was so sad to hear about this yesterday. From what Mark told me though, it sounds like this was the best decision for him. He had a good, long life and I know that he's happy and free of pain now.

We send our love to you all!
