yes bill i have been trying to change the way i think about death . if a loved one has lived a full life and it doesnt have to be a long one isn't that a life to be happy with

Regrets is another thing that gets in the way but once again its not needed that time is gone and you cant bring it back . when we loose a spirit very close to us we are forever changed and when we loose them we think we cant go on but in that moment we change we are not that person anymore and that part of us has ended like so many parts in are life as we grow up

its not better or worse just different and that's the way i see it. just lost my brother recently at 53 and got to be with him when he passed and i thought i would fall apart but i did not because i saw his death as a transition and for me to a part has ended and that's ok. all things come to an end and new things begin

we always miss them and thats ok

Oh gosh, that's beautiful. It's been nearly 7 months and I still look to share my morning banana with Charlie.

Arrow Re: This Is Why Dogs Never Die

Thanks Bill,
Yesterday my fritz ( not Sissy my diabetic) dog crossed the bridge.he got very sick,very fast.he had heart failure,collapsed trachea,.etc.he was 15. I had fostered him through the bichon rescue i work with, 3 yrs ago,but he and Sissy got along so well and he just fit with us, that i kept him.
Today my heart is hurting, tears are running, and Sissy and i are lost. She counted on his smell to help her with her sight.
Thanks for the thoughts

Bill,

Thanks for sharing. Abby is never far, from my thoughts, and always close in my heart, as I know Otis is for you.

So sorry to hear about Fitz' passing. Your big heart made sure he was well taken care of, and let him know he was much loved as a cherished member of your family before he headed for the bridge. Godspeed, Fritz.
