Thirty Months Without You

Thirty Months Without You

“Thirty Months Without You”, exactly two and one-half years;
Since that fateful Saturday morning, the culmination of all our fears!
August 5th, 2017, you took your final breath;
Leaving Mommy and Daddy devastated, eternally bereft!
.
For two and one-half years earlier, we lost your brother, our dear Nico;
After that, we never left your side, you went everywhere we’d go!
Because just like us, you were suffering, twelve years you’d been by his side;
Then all of a sudden, without him, so silently you cried!
.
Then the same fate befell upon us, our baby Cody’s life came to it's end;
Over fourteen years together, now all alone, we had to fend!
Our home was so very barren, without both our cherished pups;
Molten tears cascading downward, as our hearts and Souls erupt!
.
It took us eighteen months then, to get a puppy in your place;
She has brought us joy and healing, we love to her embrace!
But we often remember our boy-boys, still shed tears for all we had;
Today marks “Thirty Months Without You”, we send our love from Mom and Dad!
.
.
Our hearts still oft cry
Our Souls will eternal weep
For our lost Angels

Our Dear Greg,

That rainbow that you saw, on the way to Starbucks, was Cody, sending his favorite buddy, all his love.

All our love,

Dear Larry and Linda, Oh how I understand that loss and pain.  I will forever mourn Jade, our beloved collie who died to cancer in the brain.  I saw her suffer and it broke my heart every time she had a seizure...I could not bear to think of her in such agony.  I try to focus on the good memories, but to think of her final days still hurts.  I want to see her healthy and running around offering her kisses as was her sweet personality to do....Someday we will see our beloved soul mates again....Hold that hope....Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

When you talk about your beautiful Jade, it makes me think of the finest on Earth, known as "Imperial Jade", which was reserved for the Royalty.  It must have been excruciating to watch her suffer, and lose her at such an early age.  When we have to say goodbye to these precious Soulmates, it is harder than a farewell to a person, for at least we can speak with them at their end.  Thank you for you lovely words, which have brought tears to my eyes.

All my love,
Larry xxx
