You're Home, Beloved Boy

I picked up your ashes, beloved boy. They are in a lovely wooden box with a heart lock and keys. Your paw print came with them along with a beautiful hand written note from the vet and staff.

I sat in the parking lot sobbing for an hour before I could drive you home. It was such a gloomy November day in Massachusetts, exactly how my heart felt.

I decided I would drive you one last time to all the places you loved so much. So off we went, two friends off on one last adventure of the heart. The turtle santuary, the beach, the castle with the lovely grounds and so many places to sniff, the woods behind Target where you walked and almost fell in a grate until mom saved you just in-time! Then off to the pond and all the wooded trails within our complex. Then down our street and home where you will rest in the bedroom beside the Angel frame and picture from Muffin, the Angel of Remembrance from beautiful Bee, the lovely Paw Prints in the Stars book with your pictures and words from mom to you, the plants from Bee, Duncan & Bailey and the little granite rock that says "Angels Gather Here".

I put a lock of your hair into the book and have all your toothies when you had to have them removed. Your little collar is wrapped in tissue and your "drivers license" is inside the little book as well.

The little bear that the Roo Crew sent is on the bed and I cuddle it so often both in bed and in the den when I am missing you too much. The adorable Yorkie stuffed dog that Pistol Pete and Max sent you when you were ill also sits on the bed and watches over your ashes when I'm not home to do so.

Your darling little friend Jay-Jay and mom Kristen sent another beautiful Angel frame and picture of you and that is downstairs near the solarium so that you can look out the glass windows and watch the deer and wild turkeys walk by daily and watch those wiley little chipmonks and squirrels reek havoc on our birdfeeders like you loved to do so often.

Flicka and pack and mom Pam sent a large print of the Dragonfly picture they did for you and mom is having that framed now. We will hang that in the den where we used to spend so much time relaxing together.

It's been a month without you and I wonder if the sadness will ever end. I miss you, little man. Sleep well, beloved boy.

Love, Mom

I have been avoiding commenting on Diaries till HQ hopefully take this wretched Comment informer off.


Tears ?.. yes... Know how you feel ?... yes

SO glad you did what you did today ? YES !!!

Willie is with you.. they dont leave us... we just wish the pain would.

Love and Hugs for you Sweet lady..
Flicka ∆,,∆ & Lucas /..| Cleo (I.M.) ∆,,∆ & Pam X

and a repeat of the words I found before........

And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

What a beautiful tribute to an angel!
My mommy also has my ashes in a box by her bedside table together with my collar and photo . At least she feels closer to me . At first was buried in the garden but she couldn't leave me out there so she had me cremated and now I stay by her side the time she needs the most : when she goes to bed and I am not there to cuddle with her
Going to places where Willie enjoyed just shows how much you two had to share
May Willie's memories last forever and I am sure , like me , he is watching over you from the Bridge

Mommy cried while reading this diary entry. It's very similar to the diary entry she wrote for me after picking up my ashes. Please know in time your pain will ease. It will never go away completely, but it will get better. You beauiful and amazing memories of your beloved Willie will help to heal your broken heart.

That was so sweet to read and know how hard it was for you to write it. What great memories you have. Hopefully they will get you thru this pain! We are thinking of you.
Woof Woof, Buddy

Dearest Willie,

I miss you so much everyday and wish more than anything to give Mommy Joni and big hug from across the miles as I can't bare to see her struggling with this pain. We love you both more than words can say.

Always, your Bee xox

We are sure there is some comfort in having Willie back with you in some form. Mom wishes she had done that, but alas, did not.

While you shed tears for your beloved baby, you honor his memory with all the love you will always have for him.

He was an incredible boy. Special doesn't begin to describe him.

With love,
The Roo Crew

So many tears..they never seem to stop. I LOVE YOU WILLIE MY BROTHER..MY HEART. Your mommy did a special thing taking you to all your favorite places...but know what...the most favorite place is right inside your mommys heart. That is where you will stay until we all meet at the land of rainbows. I miss you my friend. I still talk to the stars and send you and your mommy all our love. I have not wiggled butt danced since you left. My heart has not been in it. As sad as I am..I can only imagine the pain in Auntie Jonis heart. I wish we could be there with her to show her how much we truly love her and care about her. We send you all our love sweet is yours forever. To Auntie Joni..there are no words to described our love for you. When we say...if you need us we are just a phone call away we mean it. We love you and send you gentle hugs...and all our love. Forever and ever and ever. Wuff you. Rio, Lexey and Pat
