My Friend, My Companion - Sammi

by Kathy Green
(Methuen, MA)

I had no idea what a HUGE part of my life Sammi was until she started to show the signs that she was tired, but hanging in there just for me. Sammi wasn't just my friend, she was my companion. Now there's a void that will never be filled and the pain in my heart will always be there.

She died in my arms, hearing me tell her how sorry I am and how much I love her and always will as the tears poured down my face. No matter what, Sammi was always there for me, and now I'll always live with the guilt of not always being able to be there when she wanted to play or go for a walk. Sammi was and always will be my best friend.
