Gino's Goodbye...

Tomorrow, it will be one month since I lost my best friend, my soulmate, my son, my heartdog. The pain hasn't lessened. I still think about it and feel shock, anger, sadness, frustration, and loneliness. I still would trade anything to be with him right now or to have him back here with me. I've said this to a couple people and I still mean it now: what kills me the most about Gino's passing is that his heaven doesn't include me. I'm left out. But I was lucky enough to have been a part of his life for over 4 years.


This is to honor and remember you, Gino Wolfgang. I waited for you for most of my life so, now that you've gone onto the next life, I will wait to join you then. I won't feel whole again until I do but rest assured, me and your brother will get by. He misses you and so do I. The tears don't stop -- they never will -- but all the times you made me smile will always trump the tears. You were my world and you still are.


I :heart you, Gino, always and forever. Please don't forget about us.



Mommy and Speck

The pain will get better.... I never believed people when they told me that. I thought there was no way they could even begin to know or understand the depth of pain I felt at losing my best friend. But amazingly it does lessen.


Its been a year and 5 months since I felt what you are feeling right now... And I am so sorry you have to go through this. I never want to feel that way again. I'm so sorry.


:grouphug Hugs to you and the Speckster.

I know we talked about this, the pain does not ever go away, same as the intensity of our love for our furkids stays forever. I thank Runner and SugarBeaer same as you will Geno for the lessons learned, and it is in their honor that I do what I do for the greyhounds.


I wish I could tell you the tears stop, but you see/saw me when I talk of Runner of The Divine Ms. SugarBear, the love for our current hounds is only amplifed by the love of our bridgekids.


Geno - give Runner and The Divine Ms. SugarBear (I know she has spotted your handsomeness and claimed you as hers) my love.


Chrissy - huggs to you

:grouphug The pain does get better with time. I didn't believe it either. It will be a year next month that I lost my Vinnie. I still cry about him. But not everyday like I did in the beginning. Now I can look at his picture and smile instead of cry.


You will be with him again someday. But until then he is your guardian angel. :angelwings

Chrissy, I know you will understand when I say I just can't respond to this except to say I know how you are feeling, I totally understand, I love you and I am here.


I'm so sorry, I just can't say more right now.... :crying

Chrissy & Speck - just keep remembering how fun Gino was - that will help eventually.


And - on a lighter note - I certainly hope Angel Gino has MORE TOYS at the bridge than he has in the first picture!!! Poor deprived boy.....

They affect our lives in such a profound way....they are truly incredibly, amazing special creatures. Unconditional love and total forgiveness...we sure could learn a lot from them. I wish you peace, happiness and healing. Since Gino's passing I make more of a point to love my hounds and give them as much attention as possible because you just never know when they will leave us..... :brokenheart


"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan." ----Irving Townsend.
