I am sorry to say Cooper the Cop Fish went to fish heaven this morning. He lived a long life for a fish — three years by my calculations — and was very loved through the years.
Cooper the Cop Fish
(This is a poem I found online about a pet dog. I changed it to fit Cooper)
They come into our lives for such a short time-a time we wouldn’t trade not even for a dime.
Then before you know it the years have flown byand then all of a sudden we’re saying good-bye.
It wasn’t that long ago we said our good-byes.We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove into God’s loving arms; in heaven above.
Over the days we’ve shed many tearsbut the memories we have will live on for years.
We feel your presence and we know that you are nearYou’re keeping us safe and calming our fears.
We think about memories from years past when you were young and strong and swam so fast.
We remember all the great times that we all had. How you always made us happy never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest years we had.We’ll always look back on them and never be sad.
We look forward to the time we’ll be together again and we thank the Lord for such a great friend
Now you swim and play up in Heaven above cradled in God’s arms covered with his love.
Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day we come down through the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we’ll never forget because to us you’re one very special pet.
You’re like a star in the dark of night always watching over us with the Lord’s light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend who will always be with us even to the end.
