Loving God, our beloved pet and companion Oreo is on his final journey. We will miss him dearly. We thank you for the gift that he has been to us. Give us hope that, in your great kindness, you may restore him in your heavenly Kingdom according to your wisdom, which goes beyond our human understanding. Amen.
—Friar Jack Wintz, O.F.M.
I plan to post a longer story about Oreo sometime in the next few days.
