In memory of our fallen partners...

Region 18 K-9 Memorial

GRIEVE NOT FOR ME FOR IT HAS BEEN ORDAINED,
THAT MY JOURNEY HERE BE SHORT.
GRIEVE NOT FOR ME FOR MY LOYAL PRESENCE
WILL EVER REMAIN IN HEART.
I WAS SENT TO BE A GUARDIAN
FOR GUARDIANS OF LAW IN BLUE
A FEARLESS, NOBLE PROTECTOR
WITH A BOND THAT FEW WILL CONSTRUE.
WITH CHARACTER UNSHAKABLE,
AND SENSES THAT ARE HEIGHTENED,
I WAS SENT TO BE A DEFENDER,
SO YOUR BURDEN HERE WOULD BE LIGHTENED,
GRIEVE NOT FOR ME FOR IN HEAVENLY BLUE
OUR REUNION DAY WILL COME.
GRIEVE NOT FOR ME FOR AS PARTNERS AGAIN,
WE WILL DEFEND THE GREATEST KINGDOM.
