Best Friends for Life
Oh Buddy, I miss you so. The whole in my and Natty's hearts we will never fill. The laughter you brought to us 24/7, to our friends and family can never be replaced or repaid for such happiness.
You were my rescue and special present to Nathalia and Mama, your boxer sister, just two years ago.
If you would have just stayed in your crate and not escaped, you would still be here with us today. If I would have bought you more bones, maybe you would not have eaten the bottle of pills you misceheviously found in our travel bag. If I would have come home right after work or mommy right after school, maybe we could have found you in time for the ER to save you.
There is no amount of money I wouldn't have spent at that hospital to try to save you. I tried expensive options that were noted to have little chance in the hope that a little chance might just pull your stubborn spirit through.
I will never forgive what happened and how you are out of our lives. We are in such pain and despair I just don't know what to do. Every day when I wake up and only feed one of you, I cry. We cry all day every day with every memory you trigger.
I hope with the place we have laid you to rest you can have peace, fun, and, most importantly, happiness, knowing that we did not have one more ounce of love to give. You have it all. You will truly be missed in our wedding.
You have been a major influence in my life, bringing not only love out deep from within me but helping me to find true love and my lifelong partner, just as we expected you would be with us. God is cruel for taking you from us at such a young age with so much left to give.
I give you my word I will find a way to keep your memory and spirit alive.
Love always and forever,
Justin, Nathalia, and Mama
