August 27th was a dark and gloomy day in New England with heavy rains later in the day. In Lexington, KY. a tragic and terrible plane crash occurred with the deaths of many. Also in Lexington, KY. a family who we have grown to love these last years gathered together to say goodby to a brave, beautiful, gentle, courageous and loved pal of so very many on Dogster – my dear pal Little Bit.
We knew her time with us wasn’t long but selfishly we didn’t want to let her go just yet. We wanted time to “prepare” for being without her. We wanted to share more wonderful stories. We wanted her to be the inspiration that she has been for so very long to other coming behind her with this dreaded disease. We WANTED HER.
Well, as if the earth knew how much our hearts would be broken, the rains came in New England and sadness came into our hearts when our dear little pal left us for Rainbow Bridge. I wasn’t ready but then I never would have been, would I.
She sent me the most darling Rosette just last week. I sent her one today and hope she sees it soon.
My heart has broken into a million pieces with her loss but I know with time it will begin to heal. I will never forget her and what she brought into my life. I love her so. She brought laughter, friendship, joy, silliness, humor, grace, dignity and so much more. We were able to share laughter much more than tears. We were able to share a friendship that will not end in death. We were able to share the deep resources of hearts together and I thank her for each and every gift she gave me so willingly and so lovingly. I hope she knew how very special she was to me and just how much she taught me.
I wished for a miracle for you dear pal, and maybe I received it all along by having you as a friend. You gave me everything you had to give in friendship and you will remain in my heart for all time.
I wish you Godspeed, pretty gal. I hope your new life is kinder to you in health than it was here. I hope there are fields of sweet potato’s for you for eat and a Bruster’s ice cream and they still give out free Sundaes. I wish you days in the sunshine with special toys to play with. I wish you no more pain and no more doctors. I wish you joy as you filled my days so many times when you were here.
I’ll see you again someday, Sweet Little Bit and love you with all the depths of my heart.
All my love, Willie
