People who have never "been there" just have no idea how long we silently grieve the loss of our beloved critters. I am sooo sorry for your loss of Lucy, and will light a little candle for her today. Be kind to yourself, Mama.
We all understand your feelings, since we have all lost beloved pets. Grieve in whatever way helps you, and hug your furbabies, they feel your sense of loss. On the 29th of this month, it will be six years since I lost four furbabies in Hurricane Katrina.
The loss is devastating, and it takes a lot of time for it to settle into our lives. We remember you Lucy, you were precious and you are missed. Our thoughts and purrayers are with your momma - you were very fortunate to have each other. Luv, Tink
