Nimby - May 6/97 - August 29/08


Recommended Posts

Nimby went to the bridge today at 5:00pm. She had problems since November and on Tuesday it all came to a head. She never got up again. Cancer, the dreaded disease that took my daughter has now taken my baby girl. Lymphoma. She went peacefully with Me, Larry, Christopher and Madison by her side.




You were Mommy's Baby Girl and Daddy's PeePee Queen. And Andrews' Nimby Dog.


We brought you home to be with us June 10, 2008. You were a feisty little thing and you let Earl know immediately that inside you were the boss but outside he was your leader and your protector.


You were Mommy's model, begrudgingly I might add




You were cute as a bunny in your picture to cheer Geniene up in hospital at Easter



You loved car rides and your trips to Dewey



And now my Baby Girl you are at the bridge with your brother Earl. Mommy and Daddy's hearts are broken, we miss you terribly. The house seems empty and I think, yes, even Dante is missing you.

Run Free my Baby Girl.

We love you and miss you.

Mommy, Daddy, Chris and Madison


Nimby & Earl together again

I'm crying with you as I read your tribute and look at the pics of your beautiful angels.


Prayers for you and your family. I'm so sorry. Please take comfort in knowing that both pups had a wonderful life and lots of love.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

:f_white:sad1:grouphug I'm so very sorry.

Oh Liz,


I am crying just sitting here reading this. It is raining here and someone once told me that when it rains it means that the angels are crying. I truly believe that they are crying for Nimby.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I do hate cancer. It is the thief who robs us, everyday, of those we love.
