Loretta

The worst day of my life --a day I knew would come was October 16, 2011. Loretta was only five years old but she gave a lifetime of love.

As a Christian, I'm disciplined by the fruits of the Spirit. Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. I had to look no further than to our "Baby Girl" to see it in practice.

Daddy misses his baby girl. You'll always be in my heart.

Loretta

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Loretta. I lost my Carley back in May. It is still very hard not to think of her. Every time I do, it is with tears in my eyes.

They are truly amazing creatures that give the unconditional love that no one can give. You hear people say it was just a dog or cat. That is just not true. Don't let anyone tell you not to be sad, because Loretta was a member of your family.

I had a very strange experience a few weeks ago. A lot of people say the spirit of a loving pet sometimes comes back to visit you to let you know they are ok. I had this happen.

Carley always slept with me. I woke up out of a dead sleep and I could feel her presence. She was saying I am doing fine. I was so glad she did. Some people would think this is crazy, but I don't. You love them all their lives and they want you to know they loved you too and they are ok.

Someday we will look back at some of the funny things they did and laugh. I am planning on getting a new puppy in the spring and I know Carley would approve.

Keep the faith. Someday they will be there to meet us at Heaven's Gate. Take care.
