I had to say goodbye

I had to say goodbye to Pyrate along with a huge piece of my heart last week. This is the first time I feel strong enough to post in his honor here. He had a stroke followed by kidney failure last Tuesday night. I stayed up with him all night knowing it was going to be the last night I could be with him and took him in Wednesday morning. He would only respond to my voice and at the last minute before the time came he looked up, licked the tears from my face, and then sighed. I know he was telling me it was okay to let him go and that he was ready to cross the bridge but it was so hard. I still cry when I look at his pictures.

Hi pyratemom

It's just so hard when we lose them. I'm so sorry. Try and remember all those lovely times you had together - it will ease the pain as you smile to yourself.
