Oscar Wood, Gone but Never Forgotten

by Kerry
(North Warwickshire, UK)

Oscar, my baby boy.

Life with you was so amazing. I never imagined that the day I let you go would be the day my world stood still. I am going through the motions every day because I have to. I would give anything to have you back home again with us.

You were more than a dog to us, you were our son, Joshy's big brother and our little pinocchio. You will never be forgotten.

I miss you more than I could ever explain. My heart is heavy with sadness that you're no longer here. It's weird that the one thing that drove us mad about you (your barking) is the one thing we miss the most.

The house is so quiet without you, and life will never be the same. Someone told me that we will never go back to normal, but we have to now find a new normal.

I'm sorry I didn't stay with you til the end but Mommy wanted to remember you as you and not your shell. Daddy held you to the very end and you were never alone.

I miss you my boy. I will never ever forget.

All my love, your Mommy XXX
