Rockin' With Riley

Clouds

The table was covered with a pale blue fleece blanket, with clouds.
When they shaved the white fur from his leg, it blended in with the clouds.
I saved it.

Our precious Riley is an angel now.

Both his vets were there. They assured us we were doing the right thing. Will I ever be sure of that?
I don't have enough words right now, to express all our gratitude to those who loved Riley.
I will try to write more later today.

With a heart filled with sorrow, but also with love,
Teri and David

My sweet bro~Riley. Neither mom or I have the words today. Just a sea of hurt and tears.
We came across this poem.
You would think it had been written by
you
**************
May I Go
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond, and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and living light.
I want to go, I really do; it's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid, because I see your tears.
I'll not be far, I promise that, and hope you'll always know,
That my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me. You know I love you too,
And that's why it's hard to say goodbye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me, you'll let me go today.
**************
We love you so much Riley
Always and forever

It never feels right to have to make that decision, but you know it is right when you don't want them to go through any more and their little bodies can't take any more. We know Riley was greeted by so many angel pals, and he will watch over your family until you see him again one day. Purrs of comfort from all of us.

Yes. You can be sure of that. You gave Riley a home filled with love and attention and when he needed you most, to protect him from pain and fear, you did that too even though it broke your heart. Bless your heart.
