With heavy hearts,and a tear in our eyes.
After all these years,we must say goodbye.
Please understand,we've done all we could.
If there was anything we could do,you know we would.

I'm sitting right here,gently rubbing your ears.
While I talk to you softly,trying to hold back the tears.
The memories you gave us,we'll never forget.
Especially the ones of the day we all met.

One last hug and one last kiss.
You have no idea how much you'll be missed.
To look into your eyes this one last time.
You tell me it's okay,you know it's your time.

Close your eyes now and go to sleep.
We'll pray to the Lord your soul he'll keep.
Go in peace now,our good friend.
We'll stay right here with you until the end.

Dream of that special day and time.
When we'll meet at the Bridge and all will be fine.
We'll run and play,side by side.
With a soft warm feeling deep down inside.

Your memory will live on each one of us.
You'll always be number one to all of us.
Have a safe journey through the night.
I promise when you awake,you'll be in God's light.

So with heavy hearts and tears in our eyes.
Just for now my friend,we say goodbye.

Mommie and your father "Amigo"      
Lief Vrouwtje en Lieve Amigo.
En alle lieve mensen die mij hebben gekend.

Ik begrijp jullie tranen.
Iedere traan is een bewijs van jullie liefde voor mij,en ik voel me vereerd en nederig.
Maar vergeet niet de goede dingen die we deelden.
Denk daaraan en glimlach dan.
Dat is een eer voor mij.
En als jullie me nodig hebben zal ik er zijn.
Sluit jullie ogen, adem diep en langzaam en haal mij voor de geest.
Sluit de wereld even af, en sluit jullie ideeën over dood af.
Geef me een kans.
Zoek naar subtiele signalen die ik jullie stuur.
Houd niet optrots op mij te zijn, ik ben een vriend waar jullie trots op kunnen zijn.
Ik ben nog steeds jullie vriend.
Houd mijn dood niet in jullie gedachten,maar eer en vier mijn eeuwige leven.
Want ik ben eeuwig,net zoals mijn liefde voor jullie.

Tot wederziens.

For my beloved Mistress and Amigo.

I understand your tears.
Every tear is a proof of your love for me and I feel honored and humble.
But,do never forget the good things we have shared.
Think of it and smile.
That is a great honor of me.
And if you need me I will be there.
Close your eyes,take a slow and deep breath and see me in front of you.
Shut off the world,just for a minute and close your ideas about death.
Give me a chance.
Find subtle signals I send to you.
Please do not stop to be proud of me,I am a friend where you can be proud of.
I am still your friend.
Please do not mourn for me but celebrate my everlasting life.
Because it is eternal,just as my love for you.

See you soon.
