In loving Memory


Yesterday I lost a good friend.  Our beautiful Autumn returned to live with her heavenly father.  We have had her since she was eight weeks old and she developed a brain tumor last year and started to have seizures.  She did well on her medication for the last year until a couple of days ago when she started falling down a lot and having difficulty walking and getting up and down.  She seemed to lose her zest for life and I believe she was suffering.  I could not see her living like this any longer and decided it was time to let her go.  As difficult as this is I know she is no longer in pain or suffering.  She has never liked going to the vet but this time appeared relaxed and just layed on the table.  I think she knew it was her time and was ready to say goodbye.  My children who grew up with Autumn are having a hard time with this as am I.  I am so grateful that she came into our lives and touched out hearts.  Life would not have been the same without you Autumn.  When I came home this morning you were not there to meet me at the door.  When I sit here at my computer you are no longer at my side. You were always there beside me where ever I went.   I just want to say you will always be with me in my heart and I will never forget your love and loyalty.
