North, Our Golden Angel

North, our precious Golden, left us on 7/23/2009. He was 12 1/2 years old and too young to leave us. It has been almost 5 months to the day that he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.
We miss him so very, very much. I miss our morning rituals, our quiet time together before heading off to work. He was the most beautiful of Goldens to us -- sweet natured, loving and so eager to please.
We had to make the heart-rending choice to let him sleep forever, but to this day I still feel guilt for letting him go. His pain was too much and no matter how much I wanted him to stay, to get better, we just couldn't let him suffer.
We suffer now here on Earth without his calming, loving spirit. I don't think we will make it through Christmas without breaking, but will do our best so Hannah, his beloved Golden companion, will not be stressed too much. We want him back, would give anything to have him back healthy and alive.
Be safe our Angel, and wait for us at the bridge. We love you.
