Apr-22

FOBs, one week from today on 29 April we will observe the 19th anniversary of Barbaro's earthly birth. Lou Ann has prepared a call of remembrance as she does every year. She's not on face book so I'm sharing for her.

BIRTHDAY REMEMBRANCE FOR BARBARO

04/29/2003 - 01/29/2007

Friday, April 29, 2022 7:00 p.m. EST (this is suggested time only - anytime during this special day is a perfect time to spend a moment to remember Barbaro, his Greatness, and his Legacy.)

Your years here on earth, honey, were far too few, but the hearts you touched are beyond measure. For all of us who love and salute him, please join in remembering and honoring Barbaro . . .

Offer your favorite tribute, a special meditative moment for him,

light a candle, offer a prayer, raise a toast, a donation to UPENN, or any rescue of your choice, in Barbaro's honor, our beloved champion.

We love you for eternity, Barbaro! Run with the angels honey!

***************************************************

Remember Me

When you hear the thunder

remember me

for those are my hoofbeats

upon your heart

deep in the night.

Do not fear the lightning

for my hooves strike sparks

so you may see

in your darkest hour.

And when the rain falls

remember me

for those are my tears of joy

as I run with the sky herd

free of rein and pain and heavy burden.

Look up and remember me

for you will see the shape of my

fiery head thrown high

among the clouds,

warmed by sun but even more

because you remember me.

--by Harriette Brillianthawk Gill, FOB,Kentucky

Written in honour and memory of Barbaro
