Karen Ramey's dog AlexThere is this wonderful place called the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) where faculty, staff and students provide compassion, support and a true love for all animals. Man’s best friend and the CVM are what kept me together.  Alex will have a brick in honor of his name placed onto a walkway that enters the hospital.  A piece of Alex will be here forever.  Thank you all for your compassion & support in getting me through my time of need. I’m still crying a lot but I know in my heart it was the right choice.  I know a lot of people but you guys are truly good quality people!!  Here’s the eulogy:

Look not where I was
For I am not there
My spirit is free
I am everywhere

In the air that you breathe
In the sounds that you hear
Don’t cry for me mom
My spirit is near

I’ll watch for you
From the other side
I’ll be the one running
New friends by my side

Smile at my memory
Remember in your heart
This isn’t the end
It’s a brand new start

Thank you all for your cards, it really means a lot to me.
