Erin - Beloved Friend

by David
(Savannah)

Erin, on August 16, 2010, you departed this world, but not my heart or my thoughts. I miss you more than words can express. Your absence in my life is almost unbearable. We were best friends and soulmates for nearly 12 years, and those contain my most cherished memories. The best decision I ever made was to bring you into my life. You rewarded me with unbound love and constant companionship.

Side by side, we saw the world together. You accomplished all I envisioned. World traveler, therapy dog, church attendee, stage dog and friend to so many... you did it all. You possessed the perfect temperament, friendly demeanor and zest for life that left others in awe. God made you with very few flaws. You were as near perfect in my eyes as any creature to walk the Earth.

Erin, your impact upon my life and the lives of others is unmeasurable. Your years touching hearts as a therapy dog were inspiring. I'm so proud of the smiles you produced as we entered the patients' rooms. You are still talked about, and stories about the lovable Springer Spaniel will continue as long as I'm alive. Thank you for teaching me the meaning of life and how to love without limits.

Inseparable in this world, we should have made the journey together to the other side. I miss holding you in my arms while I breathe in your scent. It's no exaggeration to say I've shed a million tears thinking about you.

One day I'll meet you at the bridge and we can cross together. Until then, watch over me and continue to bless me with your presence.

Love you more than anything!! Daddy
