“No words describe a mother’s tears; no words can mend a broken heart”
The day I met you was December 25th, 2003. I got you as a Christmas gift, but you became so much more as years went by – 13, to be exact. You were there when I transitioned from high school to college; when I graduated; when I met the love of my life; when my grandparents left this Earth; through uncertain times, you were my only rock.
You taught me lots about love, companionship and personal growth. We both became better for each other and individually: you always wanted only “the best things” and I made sure you got them until your very last day. Every sacrifice was worthwhile as long as your heart kept beating. And we met a lot of angels along the way: people who were always there to help keep an eye on you or make sure you got your medicines. They all hold a special place in my heart. I wish you could have been there on my wedding day, scrambling my dress and wearing one of your own;
I wish you could be there to meet my first human child (you’ll always be my first baby) or that we did that trip to foreign lands together…but God had other plans and now you’re but a memory: the sweetest, cutest and fluffiest one of all. Sleep tight, little one. We’ll meet again. -From your loving mom, Rose
