Bye Bye Bubba

by Megan L. Hurley
(Belle Rose, LA)

Unconditional love is what I felt for Bubba, as deep as the blue sea. I smile through the tears as I remember his character, and my heart breaks when I remember his illness. It has been five days, but it's a wound so fresh it might as well have just happened a minute ago.

And so I go on grieving, but with the comfort of knowing he is happy somewhere wonderful and that I will see him again. He had a soul so sweet, eyes so tender and expressive, and I will miss him for the rest of my days.

I end this remembrance of him with something I've said with my 18 month old son every day now: bye bye Bubba.
