Roxy headstone and watercolor

10 Apr

Just a small update. The vet, Valley View Animal Hospital, presented this marker to Greg a short time ago. Greg had intended to have a marker with this same inscription made this spring but the crew in Dover beat him to it. Thanks guys.


I am still receiving email, cards, etc. from people as they hear. I walked into my kitchen just a day ago and found that Jesse had left copies of both Horse Illustrated and Young Rider opened up to the Roxy Remembered sections….a tear jerking moment.

This however also came in the mail. It is from Maria’s Watercolor, she can be found at or at Stop by her FB site if you have a chance and tell her AMAZING. She really captured Roxy’s spirit in this painting.

Thanks again to everyone who has thought of Roxy and her humans and do remember, ‘don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.’

    To me, horses are creatures of God. I believe there is a special place to horses , when horses say goodbye to us here in this life.

    Your quote is very meaningful to many people, especially those in the horse community. Horses are our best friends and like humans, they pass away. Your quote reminds us that there are so many happy memories that we share with them and it is important to think of them and smile about it.
