A tribute to Roxie

Fayteen and her family are still grieving for their beloved dog, Roxie. Since Roxie died recently, we have been thinking about how much our animals teach us about life and love. They are always eager to greet us in the morning, always ready to sit quietly by our side, always ready to comfort us when we are feeling sad.

“Roxie filled our house with her presence,” writes Ranna, Fayteen’s daughter. “There is not a day that goes by that I don’t miss that lemon-meringue-colored dog. I miss her calmness and peacefulness and her whimsical prancing. Without her, our house is filled with a vapid void. Someday, when I see her in heaven, I will scoop her up in my arms.”
