Nessus... A Sympathy card for a beloved pet...

My best friend's beloved Shi-Tsu , Nessus passed away at the age of 17 recently.  
It was expected, and almost welcomed, because her old age had not been kind to her.
Inside the card I included my favorite passage regarding the passing of pets: 

We who surround ourselves with life
even more temporary than our own,
live within a fragile circle,
easily and often breached.
Yet we could live no other way - 
and cherish memory as the
only certain immortality.

from  The Once Again Prince
by Irving Townsend
