The latest...

Dear Henry...

I'm not sure I have the right words for this Henry boy.

They elude me in every way...

....as I type this through tears.

We let you go yesterday.

....and as hard as that was, we know it was best and that you're in a good place...

Romping with Junior.

Nuzzling up with Penga.

Free from the collar of life and pain that we just didn't see until very recently.

Many tears have been shed and many more will undoubtedly follow.

You were a good boy.

Strong.

Loyal.

Protective of your family at all costs.

A fabric of our lives....

....and now, your absence is so abundantly clear.

Our house is quiet.

Its walls and floors mourn for you.

No more walks.

No more tail wags at the front door.

No more of that Henry smell.

....but what we're left with is profound

The mark you made on us

The way you made us feel...

Whether you were by our side or just knowing that you were in the next room

....and for that

We're so ever thankful.

Thank you Henry!

Rest in peace.  

We love you.
