Never Forget

Today is the day mom lost Pumpkin many years ago.I never met Pumpkin yet mom says she was a very sweet dog.She was mom's constant companion through rough times.Also making mom smile through her tears.Pumpkin was mom's furry friend so when she died mom was lost and deeply sadden.She swore she'd never get another pet cause the pain was to unbearable.She put all photos of pumpkin away and forbid people to talk about her.Then one day a friend sent mom a letter, inside she included a photo she took of Pumpkin at her house.Pumpkin look so pretty laying in the sunshine her fur gleaming.Mom through all her pain had forgotten the good times.The many joys Pumpkin had given her right up to the end.Mom now has that photo in a frame on her nightstand for Pumpkin is always alive in her heart.

Yes, it does hurt to lose a furry and it's good your mom can now remember the good times instead of just the sadness.

We hope that your mom heals totally. We understand. My mom lost her kitty, Dandelion, about 3 years ago, and she still hurts about it. Dandelion was her special love forever. We like that poem!
