You and Henry were a great team - in life, in love, and finally in his ending. He will live forever because he has become a part of our hearts too.

 

Run In Peace, sweet Henry. Whole and pain free.........

I cannot belive his name is on here. Just yesterday reading about your trip out and getting the diagnosis. How absolutely rapid and crushing.

 

I'm sorry he had to go but I'm sure Kasey was there to greet him.

What a love story between you two. :f_white

Alicia if this helps at all, fibrosarcoma is a very hot cancer. Pearl's tumors grew a centimeter a day. So Henry's tumor was probably there less than a month.

He was a handsome and brave boy.

Oh, I am so sorry to see this post. Like many people here on GT, I have been following your journey with Henry for a long time. And I am so very sad that his journey has come to an end. Sharing tears and sending you hugs across the miles.

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 heal and 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.

I am so brokenhearted to read this. What an amazing tribute, what an amazing mom you were to Henry! Praying for you in this very difficult time :brokenheart

oh, alicia, what a perfect tribute! the deep love and understanding you shared shines through in every word. i know you and sterling are heartbroken---it just doesn't seem fair that such a bright and brave little soul couldn't have stayed longer. but i was reminded of some lovely words in another recent tribute---"a glass half full kind of hound", and i thought that perfectly describes henry too. though your time together was too short, every moment was filled with love, and dedication to each other's safety, comfort, and happiness. and we can only imagine what hope, joy, and inspiration your special boy brought to so many others. because he was precisely where he was meant to be, i'm sure that henry's work here is not over, and his spirit will live on in many ways.

my heart aches for you in this saddest of times. sending you much love and sympathy from me and doug, and gentle nose kisses from calvin and angie
