He loved his horse 'Cocoa' for 31 years, now they are joined together in the heavens, this we know has made him a happy man!

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
