Berkeley, My Love
by Paul and Mariam Rudolph

We just had to watch you go to sleep this past Thursday. In my 32 years it's been the hardest thing I've ever done.
I'm so sorry you got bone cancer and became sick so fast, and I'm so sorry the morning of your MRI both Daddy and I promised you everything would be okay. You were such a strong girl that day just like I asked.
We are so heartbroken without you. We miss you so much. No dog or human can ever replace the love we shared. I'm really scared to find your bonebone in the house. I don't know where you hid it the last time. I hope you took it with you to the other side and will let me find it when I get there with Daddy one day.
