Sasha Momma

by Amber
(Lansing MI)

I came home to find you with your sister close to your side. I called out for you when I got home. You were slow to move due to hip dysplasia so I waited. I came to help you up and I saw you in your spot, laying there, and I knew. I cried uncontrollably at your side, your sister close to us both.

Your 9th birthday was in a couple weeks. You are no longer in pain. Your flower bed is beautiful, filled with purple flowers like your blanket. Happy like your soul.

We will forever miss you. You are once in a lifetime and nothing will ever compare. You inspire us to be better and do more. The guilt is sometimes heavy, that maybe we could've known, or caught it sooner, that it didn't have to be now. But you knew, you played hard, loved hard, and knew when it was time.

You will always be our girl, our Sasha Momma. You will be forever missed, and remembered always. Thank you for loving us, for the joy, the laughs, the fun, the life well lived, the memories made and cherished forever. Thank you for teaching us to always do better, be patient, and never stop loving.

We love you always and forever,
Your Momma and Daddy 💗💗
