Farewell, my dearest most beloved Honey…
Thank you for spending 16 years on earth with us. Thank you for pressing on to the final moments to allow Janine and me to hug you and say our good byes. You may be gone now, but you will forever be in my heart.
The precious memories of you will keep us company and warm our hearts.
I will always remember, how we fell in love with you and picked you out because you were so full of life and so so beautiful. As a puppy, you’d hop into my lap and share my driving seat, even though that was probably not the best way to drive. When we walked along the beach together, many would come to touch, pat and comment how cute you were. You were my witness and shared my joy when Desmond proposed to me. You were on the front cover and spreads of my prewedding photo album. You would always wake from your sleep and welcome me home, even when I came back at 2, 3 and even 4 am. Thank you for being so welcoming to John and Janine when they joined our family. You had always been gentle with them and you were so good when they started to walk you last year. Thank you for being you, the perfect dog for all of us.
For that, I thank our creator, for making and placing you in our lives.
Much as my heart breaks whenever I think of you now, I’m reminded of what John and Janine said. As we said our final farewell yesterday, Janine patted you and told me “Honey resting”. When John was told of the news, he commented, “So Honey went to heaven!? He will meet Happy in heaven!? So Honey and Happy are with the people in the bible in heaven first!”
I believe so. And I hang on to the hope of holding you once again. But till then, I will always miss you.
