Simba 6/12/11

I never thought the day would come. I enjoyed and loved the 14 years we had together. You were my best friend from thick to thin, you were there by my side. You loved me no matter the time... you my friend, you followed me wherever I went. We were inseparable.

I thought, I hoped, I wished forever. The time had come when you were ill and suffering. I was too, suffering in my heart to see you in pain. I was there when I brought you home as a pup and I was there when you passed on.

I will never forget you my friend. Thank you for the great memories. I miss you terribly. I will see you again my friend.

To Simba's Dad, Richard
by: Karen, Owner of Tiger

Richard, I read your memorial for Simba and could not help but shed tears for your loss. Simba must have been a really wonderful Golden Retriever and was lucky to have lived so long. I don't know which is worse, losing a dog of 15 years or one of, say, 2 years. They all seem to take large chunks away from our hearts when they depart this life and leave us feeling empty.

A big part of your life was shared with Simba, so you have lots and lots of great memories. Cherish them!

Again, please accept my deepest condolences on your loss of such a great, long-liver, Simba. Peace!
