I understand. I lost my Everything on March 2nd. Having gone in for a surgery we thought would be curative, we learned instead there was spread that didn't show up on the scans and there was nothing more to be done. The day we got home he had Avery in his lap and he said, I have to make him understand why I'm leaving him. As if my heart were not already totally broken that crushed me. That was January 9th. We had him for 51 more days. I thought Avery might grieve himself to death so I worked daily to get him through that rough first few weeks. Without realizing it at the time, helping him, helped me. God Bless you...I am so sorry for your loss and what you are going through.

It sounds like you find that comforting - I hope it is. I cherish the comfort our pets bring to me now. My favorite pictures of my husband are a series of the dog, Niko, going up to lick Michael's face and then Michael throwing his head back in laughter.


How precious those pictures must be to you. I look back at photos of Steve with Avery all the time. What would we do without them?

Hugs to you Kitty and Dan.
