Marge R.I.P 7/16/1997 - 4/11/2011

Tuesday, April 12, 2011


Our beloved pet Marge left us yesterday at 13 yrs and 9 months.
7/16/1997-4/11/2011

14 years, 15 states, five books, three major life changes, two of the world's softest ears, thousands of walks, millions of kisses, zillions of snuggles, infinite belly rubs, laughs and treats … and two men whose lives have forever been changed by one rescue dog’s unconditional love. You helped teach us both it was OK to love again, with wild abandon, hearts be damned. Ours may be broken now, but you mended them once, and you will once more, when we see you again. I know you'll be waiting for us, head always turned, looking back, to see if we're coming. And we walk. Forever.

I'm so sorry you lost Marge. I enjoyed hearing about her in your books. You will see her again, she will be just as happy to see you too. Time will pass faster than you can imagine. Glad you all took care of each other.

Beautiful tribute. We are still mourning our Katrinka who went to heaven Feb.18th. She didn't quite made 13. Our hearts are heavy and there is a huge whole in our lives and hearts. Knowing I will see her again is my only comfort.

I commented on your fb post but felt compelled to say something here as well. I am so very very sorry for you and Gary's loss. After reading the chapter in "It's All Relative" about the stray dog you had to put down, I can only imagine how upset both of you must be right now after having Marge for so many years.

Know that so many loved Marge just from reading about her and she will always be remembered by so many who never met her.

Hugs to both of you, I'm sending you tons of love from Texas.

I'm so sorry to hear, my hope is that you will continue to keep her in your hearts and thoughts. Because of Marge, you have been changed and will never be the same. Because of you, Marge was able to enjoy many, many years of love and joy. You all win because love wins. Huge hugs from UGs. ~A.

We are so sad to learn about Marge's passing. Your tribute is so touching and made us think of our two dogs, Lucky and Spencer, and how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

We just lost our Mable two weeks ago. It's heartbreaking. You need the book Dog Heaven by Cynthia Rylant. It's a kids book but it's simplicity comforts so beautifully. I got it with our last dog's passing and have had "angels" leave it with many friends who have had to go through the same thing.

LOVE SPELLS THAT WORKS I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
You can as well contact Dr.  Aluya  , a powerful spell-caster for solutions on his contact aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com or directly on Whats App: +2348055431163

I'm brenna wood from the US. White Caucasian Female. I'm 43 years old and i got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and i was living happily. After five years of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange that I don’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that i never dream of losing him, i tried my best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail, i cried and cried seeking for help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Ojoka, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at dr.ojokaspelltemple@gmail.com I explain all my problem to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me now and we are living happily with so much love for each other. What app him at +2348144172934
