Kayla misses her friend, "Tickles"

This is Kayla's pet, “Tickles,” who passed on to Pet Heaven
on June 6th, 12 PM Noon.  Kayla is a friend of Jared
after reading JaredStory.com and is from Lynnwood, Washington.

"They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times i cried.  A million times i wished you were here.
If only heartaches could build a path, and tears bring you back.
The chain will link one by one, till we all meet again."
Dedicated to Tickles and Jared - from Kayla

Try to Understand

I'll lend you, for a little while, 
A rattie friend, He said, 
For you to love while she lives 
And mourn when she is dead.
She'll bring her charms to
gladden you, 
And shall her stay be brief, 
You'll have her loving memories
As solace for your grief. 
I've looked the wide world over 
In search for teachers true, 
And from the throngs that
crowd life's lanes, 
I have selected you.
I fancied that I heard you say, 
Lord, thy will be done. 
For all the joy this rat will bring,
the risk of grief I'll run. 
And should you call for her 
Much sooner than I planned, 
I'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand.
It may be one or two years, 
Or maybe even three, 
But, will you, 'til I take her back, 
Take care of her for me?
I cannot promise she will stay, 
Since all from earth return, 
But there is are lessons taught on earth, 
I want this rat to learn. 
Now will you give her lots of love, 
Nor think the labor vain, 
Nor hate me when I come 
To take her back again?
I'll shelter her with tenderness. 
I'll love her while I may. 
And for the happiness I've known,
Forever grateful stay.

HEAR JARED'S VOICE - PLAY - From an interview with Pasco School District investigators concerning the assault.  This is a recording of a recording and it isn't real clear, but worth the download effort.  Jared had a real mellow voice.  Note: If you have a slow load wav, wait for it to load entirely and then play again from the start.   5 minutes long
