You had a beautiful funeral. Bill Zoslocki and his wife, Kathy, officiated it, and what they said was perfect. Even though Dad and I are mad at God for taking you so soon, it is true. You were lent to us... a short term lease, I suppose.
Auntie Alison and her golden retriever, Ginger was there. So was Auntie Sandy & Uncle Calvin and their daughter Cheryl Ann. Then came Ms. Nancy & Mr. Bryan with your pal, Phantom. And "Uncle" Paul was there, too! Even our neighbor, Bernadette, came. She was so sweet to be there. Everyone came to celebrate your life. You never knew, in such a short time, you touched so many. Daddy talked at first, then Bill did a service, then everyone talked about their memories of you. Then Ms. Nancy read a letter you wrote... Mommy will have to transcribe it here when she can get away from Mickey.
We are still moving one foot in front of the other. It takes every ounce of their strength, but we are.
I know you sent some clouds this morning to let us know you're watching over us. One was a ducky, and the other looked JUST like you swimming. But there were wings. Maybe you are more duck now, cause you do have wings!
Mommy is crying.... her face is raw with the burn of tears, and her eyelashes are white with salt.
We love you for loving us.
