In Memoriam..."Marley"

My niece is a dog trainer for a company called "Sit Means Sit".  She loves her job.  It has taken her quite a while to find something not only that she loves, but that she is very good at.  She has two dogs that she has trained that are her partners.  She demonstrates with them to owners how their dogs should respond to commands etc.  Her dogs are pretty special.

This afternoon, my sister, the one who was the "mother" to Annie who died yesterday, text me saying that she was with her daughter, my niece, who was with her dog, age 4, at the emergency vet.  They were with "Marley" who she described as "real sick".  The next thing I know I get a text from my sister that said "Marley just died".  "Oh no", was all I knew to say.

I do not know the details.  My sister was still with my niece when I talked to her later by phone.  Maybe tomorrow I will know a little about the what occurred.

Regardless, tragedy hit my sister's family hard this week.  I know God is holding them in his hands near his heart.

Numbers 6
24 24 “‘“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
25 25 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
26 26 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”’

Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
