This was read at the funeral of a friend in July, a friend who loved dogs.  Another forum I haunt had it posted, Annie would have loved it. Cry

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

THEN YOU CROSS RAINBOW BRIDGE TOGETHER...

Yep, she would have liked it Del.  Our Vets office sends out a sympathy card everytime one of their customers loses a pet. There is a printed card inside it with that poem on it.

I visited with AnnieLee's son last Saturday.  I brought him a quilt that was made for him by two of AnnieLee's friends, Toccoa Kate & Rocky 2 Pockets.  Toccoa Kate was also the person that wrote the piece in the Chronicle about AnnieLee.  The quilt was made with material that AnnieLee had.  She wanted Charlie to have the quilt but she was too weak to do the work so she asked Toccoa Kate to make it for her.  I finally connected with Charlie and delivered it to him. 

Attached is a picture of the quilt.

Happy Birthday AnnieLee.  I think of you every day.

How is Will doing?

He seems to be doing fine.  He is a senior in high school and is keeping busy with school and his part-time job.  I think his SASS membership has expired since he told me has not received any Chronicles since last April.  Sad

On a brighter note, his birthday is tomorrow, September 28.  He will be 17.  His email address is still valid and is spyder6009@aol.com

That's a trip, Wil's b/d is the day after mine. I thought whoever wrote the "memory" in the CC did an excellent job, and felt honored at the mention of "Kumbuya Part Deaux"  (I started that thread after Manatee's original died on the Spot, and the Lady gave it sooo much life.....)

Good night Miz Lee............

I sure miss her.  Cry
The following is part of an email I sent to some family and friends on 3/1/2006.

At 1:20 PM on Monday, a dear friend lost her fight with cancer. She was known in the Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) community as Annie Lee. Her given name was Nancy Depoy. She was 47 years old. The following is an email I received from her on 12/19/2005. “(I have)  Metastatic pancreatic carcinoma that has spread to the liver, lungs, adrenal glands and lymph nodes. My appointment with the oncologist is on Jan 6th. Since it has metastised, it's inoperable. They are starting me on pain management. Dunno what else to say.”

I met her on a CAS board 3 years ago and conversed with her almost daily since. We talked on the phone many times about CAS and other things. We met her and her son, Charlie, face to face in February 2005 at the NCOWS Convention in Iowa. She sent jam and jelly that she made to us the last two Christmases. A couple months after Micah was born, we received a package from her. A blue afghan that she knitted and little soaps for the girls were in it. Carolee (my better-half) put the soaps in the girl’s dresser drawers to make them smell pretty.

I talked to her on the phone last week. I mostly talked, she listened. We talked for about a half hour. She sounded very tired. She asked me if she could go so she could lie down. That was the last time I spoke with her.

She was admitted to Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, VA on Thursday. On Friday night, I was informed that she had developed pneumonia. On Sunday night, I was told they didn’t think she was going to last very long. I decided that I would drive out on Monday to hopefully get there before she died. I didn’t know if she knew Jesus as her Saviour, so I wanted to share the plan of salvation with her. I talked to her sister on Monday morning before I left. She said that she was on oxygen and not taking in much, but her heart was beating faster to compensate for it. I left the house about 8:45 AM and drove to the gas station about 7 miles away. On the way to the gas station, an idea popped into my head that it might be good to have someone ride shotgun with me to help keep me awake. The first name that came to me was Jeff Bailey (Steel Horse Bailey), a CAS friend in Indy. He is on disability from the Army (Gulf War Syndrome), so he is not currently working. So, at the gas station, I called him to see if he wanted to do that and he said yes. So, off to Indy I went via Illinois. In the middle of Illinois, around 1 – 1:30 PM, I had the feeling I needed to place Annie Lee in the hands of Jesus and let go of her. After 9 hours on the road; in which I did a lot of praying, thinking, and listening to Christian radio; I arrived on the Bailey household. I called Carolee and she informed me that Annie Lee died around 1:30 PM. I was not sure what to do as I didn’t know what the funeral plans were going to be, so I sat down and chatted with Jeff. My friend, Delmonico, called a little while later and said that she was being cremated and the funeral service was going to be at Arlington National Cemetery in about 2 weeks. So, I decided to stay the night and head back home in the morning. We talked until after 1 AM. At 10 AM, I was on the road back home. I did a lot of praying, thinking, and listening to Christian radio; again. I got home at 6:45 PM.

Hello the fire,

I lost a friend that I never met a year ago, and as many on this wire have said the sport is diminished by her passing.  I still wish that she was here to give me he!! when I needed it.  Rest in Peace Annie.
