August 4th, 1989 to July 7th, 2002
Sunday started out so great, she got up with me,
ate her breakfast, went out side and played a little
on the deck.
She watched us do some work, then we saw her start to
get weak, I sit on the bench with her awhile,
but somehow I knew this spell she would not pull through.
We took her inside, and as I held her I told Ed to
call the vet, but then I knew I didn't want our last
memory to be of a ride she would not finish.
So I held her close as I could and rocked her as I felt her
heart grow weaker. She started to struggle a
little but I said the hardest words I have ever spoken,
I told her no it was OK to cross over, I told her I
would cry for her and miss her very much, but I would
go on and meet her someday, I told her Misty was
waiting to show her the way.
So as I held her close with Ed's arms around us both I
could feel her grow smaller. Her heart finally
gave up but I still held her, I knew she was still
close by and I wanted her to feel all the love I had for
her so she could take it with her as she made the last
part of her journey.
