I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I at least want to try. Today is the 5 year anniversary of when Floppy went to the bridge. I still miss you Floppy and when I look back to 5 years ago, I still remember the pain...the loss I felt when you were no longer there.
You were my first dog...I had Sparky and Lady...but you were the first one I actually owned and took care of by myself. I will never forget the first time I saw you...on top of a washing machine after your first bath.
I learned so much with you...we had a connection...a devotion and loyalty to each other. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you and there's nothing you wouldn't do for me.
I have to mention your grandma and grandpa...boy, did you really love them. Nothing made you happier than visiting them. They were the only ones I trusted when I had to go out of town. They sure knew how to spoil you! Oh and Floppy...they really loved you too.
I'm not sure I want to talk about when you got sick...I think even after 5 years there is still too much pain. But one thing I want to say is this...God knew how hard it was for me...we didn't know if you had weeks or months...it only turned out to be days. I believe God took you...to care for you...because He knew how hard it would be for me. I would have been there for however long it took, but hearing the news that you had cancer took a big piece of my heart.
Always know....each year as this day passes...it will be me Floppy...me who ALWAYS remembers today. I still think of you often and think about the "floppy girl" smile. I love you Floppy....
her urn says:
"Our Floppy girl, a loved family member, who will always be in our hearts and never forgotten. We will always love you as much as you loved us. Until we meet again in heaven, you will be dearly missed"
