Grandpa Jim's Rainbow!
A magnificent rainbow appeared over Grandpa Jim's "line" on the evening
June 28th, 2008. The MOTA Trials Club, working on sections for our
Observed Trials in July,
reported a huge double rainbow at the kennel/farm in Vermontville
Saturday evening also!
Jim loved to help out with our Observed Trials events so we are
confident he shared his
rainbow with family and friends in Fowlerville and Vermontville!
Please give Reno a hug & kiss for me and I will see you again at the rainbow
Love you, Amy xoxo
A perfect ending
to a perfect Father's Day *** Beautiful clouds over Grandpa Jim's farm!

Jim Brandenburg *** God's Garden
looked around his garden and he found an empty place,
He then looked down upon this earth and saw his tired face.
He put his arms around him and lifted him to rest.
God's Garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that he was suffering, He knew that he was in pain.
He knew that he would never get well on earth again.
He saw that the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb,
So he close his weary eyelids and whispered
"PEACE BE THINE."
It broke your hearts to lose him, but he didn't go alone,
For parts of you went with him the day God called him home.
All our Love Duncan, Janet
