My Most Precious Abel

by Alice Johnson
(Bellingham, WA)

My most precious Abel, I miss you more than you can ever know. You left me too soon, without warning, at only 6 years old due to cancer. There were no symptoms till it was too late, which was totally unfair.

But you were so very special, I guess God just couldn't wait for you. Shane thinks you were called to be with the baby he and Belinda lost or maybe to help Phoenix cross over. But selfishly, I would rather you were still here with me! I lost you on April 18, 2007 and still grieve so much for you!

You were not only my service dog but my most trusted and loyal friend. You gave me the independence to do the things I wanted to do. You made me feel safe always! You were by my side 24 hours a day, sharing every minute of my life with me. There will never be another you.

I have so many memories of you and the joy and love you gave me. There never was a cuter sweeter puppy. And though they say it is a genetic fault in your breed, I loved that mohawk between your eyes!

I love and miss you so much and look forward to the time I see you again at the Rainbow Bridge, my beautiful, sweet, precious boy!
