My condolences to both Merico and LucysMommy. Pets can make our hearts whole while they're with us and leave a hole when they're gone. During quiet times, though, your thoughts will hold more happy memories of when they were here. Right now it's just so hard to say goodbye.
For each thorn, there's a rosebud... For each twilight...a dawn For each trial...strength to carry on.
For each storm cloud...a rainbow For each shadow - the sun... For each parting - sweet memories When sorrow is done.
