|This is to all the angel babies and your mommy's and daddy's. Point blank, I love you all. I've read the posts from the last few days, and I have to say that crying is an understatement right now.
Let me tell you a little story........
A few months back, I met a pup named Petey through another group. He was wanting someone to mentor him and I was wanting to mentor someone. We hit it off and one day we got to posting pawmails on how it was a shame that the angel babies really had no where to go on here so that the moms and dads could feel a little less heartache about us passing to the bridge. Sure there are groups for the angel babies, but I don't think they are like this one. We decided to create a group where not only were the angel babies the number 1 member, but the group would have places, such as this thread, for the moms and dads to post to each other and have someone that knew what it is like to loose a beloved pet, to lean on. When we started the group, it was touch and go for a few weeks. Then, there was a time when I was ready to call it quits. But Petey, bless his heart wouldn't let me. Telling me to give it a little more time. More time is what I gave it, and WOW, look at us now. We are over 400 members strong, and I think that everyone here, judging by the posts in this Grief Relief thread, is enjoying the group.
No matter how long we have been gone, it sure does help to have someone else to lean on when the thought of us takes over our hearts and we can't get around it til we talk it out. I know personally, my family thinks mommy is a little crazy for still missing me as she does, but they are all supportive. Most of the time.
So thank you to all the members that make this work. Our only goal was to provide a place for peaceful thoughts and laughs, crys and hugs. We've done that, thanks to ya'll.
With love for all of you,
Bama and his mommy
