Dotty Box, My Soul Mate

by Joya Cloninger
(Newton NC)

March 31 2014, I lost the most precious creature I've ever had. Dotty was only eight and went away too soon.

She came to me during a time in my life when I hadn't loved, been loved, or even thought of love. When I got her, she taught me all about loving again. I was overwhelmed and put every single bit of love I found in me in her.

She was my soulmate. We spent every second of every day together, sometimes with no contact with anyone else. I saw that I could still love. Dotty showed me that I wanted to change my life. She changed my life. I wanted to show her a better one in gratitude.

God, how I miss and need you. I love you, Dottybox. You are never far from my thoughts. Until we meet again.

Your Dotty
by: Linda

I know what you mean about loving, being loved, and having a beautiful soul showing you all of that. I lost my little soul mate in June of this year.

Your Dotty was beautiful. She is still with you, she always will be.

Bless you. I hope your heart heals soon.
