My dearest husband Rim, you were too good for this world.
Rimantas Pranas Saulys
14/1/1958 - 19/12/2011
just 53 years old.
You left so many people behind who adored you - you were carried to the pearly
gates on a wave of our love.
Thank you to all of you who supported Rim and I through these devastating
and difficult times.
I miss him so much... never wanting to let go... wondering why on earth I had to, what's it all for?
He looked at me and I felt safe and loved.
Rim passed away at home in my arms on Monday 19/12/11, where I had nursed
him through a ferocious and valiant battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He remained at home until his funeral
service, that was held here - at our Farm in Longford on Wednesday 21/12/11 before
I drove him to the Chapel for private cremation on Thursday. Rim was home on Friday
23/12/11 to be with us in time for Christmas and the New Year.
if only I could hold your hand ... just one more time...
I will share a few photo's below of his farewell, our Friends, Family & Maremma
Livestock Guardian Dogs were our escort for Rim's final drive around our farm.
Rim's casket is placed onto the old Landcruiser he loved so much, friends and family
were encouraged to pick flowers from our garden to place in with Rim.
beginging the final journey for Rim around the farm followed by family and freinds.
Our Maremma Livestock Guardian Dogs, most of whom Rim & I rescued, accompanied us on the farm journey.
some of them led the way, others followed alongside.
family & friends followed
I paused here to gather some wild flowers for Rim, they are the same small pink flowers we all wore at our wedding in Golden Beach some years before, I had never seen them growing on our farm before - until this final day. We were the first people on record of being married at Golden Beach too. We liked to do things our own way -full of meaning and memories for us.
Our wedding day at Golden Beach - complete with tiny pink flowers in Rim's button hole.
Our kids & me
Our family and friends who shared Rim's final earthly day.
I drove Rim to the Chapel in town.
