To: My Mommy
My special gift to god
Thank you for taking me in and adopting me with so much love and oh.. so much fun we had.
Remember that time I ate a hole in Daddy’s golf cart seat and you told Daddy it was probably the rats. Or the time, the water pipes got pushed over when Juice and I were playing and you told Daddy it must have been the wind.
Remember that time the rattle snake attacked me, and somehow you managed to lift my 90 lb body up, carry me to the car and to the Vet all by yourself. I was so grateful for you.
Remember that time I had 8 pups and you were so excited. I was really proud of them and would not let anyone near them but you at first. As they got a little older, you and Daddy taught them how to swim to the steps of the pool in case they fell in and I of course had to help.
Remember the times you would take me for a ride in your convertible. I always enjoyed that. Or the time you ran over a turkey and I retrieved it from your front bumper and I had to run off with it.
Remember that time Juice and I were out chasing turkeys, raccoons, and I even brought the trophies home to you and Daddy to share. But you only had to bath the skunk smell off us once and pull the quills from the cute little porcupine I found once or twice.
Remember when grand dad Jim thought we were playing with a very big dog, but he did not know it was really just a donkey.
Remember when guests were scared to enter our premises, afraid I would bite them. I really would not hurt anyone; I just wanted to protect my family. But I sure did like to scare people!
Remember that time Angela was getting on to the girls and I did not like that. Or when Brandy got on to her boys. I did not like people getting on to my little friends, I just love children.
Remember the nights I had nightmares of my past abusers tormenting me, and you would lay down with me, gently stroking my black fur and telling me, you are home with Mommy and Daddy, it is ok my little bear.
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played or just hung out together, I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade. I kept seeing a glimpse of what you told me about. The most beautiful rainbow, with lush green meadows. With animals of every sort healthy as can be!
Please make sure you wash Labus’ face 2 or 3 times a day, he likes that. And make sure that you get on to Boudreaux when he barks too much. I will miss them to, but my spirit will be closer than you think.
Tell Daddy, he has to still pick up his shoes and socks, I did teach Labus and Boudreaux how to eat them and hide them like I did.
I will not be far; I promise Mommy, that my spirit will always be close to you.
Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That is why it is hard to say good-bye
And end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time
And let me hear you say
Because you care so much for me,
You’ll let me go today.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I am alright. That this place is truly wonderful Mommy. Then a bright glow pierced the night. I knew that it held your love in its brilliant shades of glow. It was the stars. At night when you see a star know that I am there playing with all my new friends and I will wait for you and I will see you one day.
The time has come for the tears to end for you to be happy and cheerful again. I am safe in god’s home above cradled in his arms; covered with his love. He told me I was a special gift to him from a great friend.
You have been crying so much I feel bad I want you to be happy and not sad. Always remember the great times we had and there will be no reason to ever be sad.
I Love you Mommy and Daddy!
