Assign her to a place of honor, for she has been a faithful servant and has always done her best to please.
Bless the hands that send her to you, for they are doing so in love and compassion, freeing her from pain and suffering.
Grant them the strength not to dwell on their loss. Help them remember the details of her life with the love she has shown them. And grant them the courage to honor her by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember them as well and let her know that we will always love her. And when it's our time to pass over into your paradise, please allow her to accompany those who will bring us home.
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of her companionship and for the time we've had together.
And thank you, Lord, for granting us the strength to give her to you now.
