Algy 07/03/2007-10/15/2019

Recommended Posts

My heart is breaking for you. Perhaps he will send you a sign to reassure you.  Your love was so strong he could never leave you. He may teach you from the other side. Love is energy and therefore it cannot be destroyed by death or anything else.  Your Algy is spirit. Only his body died. But the Algy you loved is completing his journey on the other side and while he can't be with you in body any longer he will be with you in spirit.  Be open minded and look for the signs he may send you. And don't doubt them-they ARE real. He will teach and guide you.

Until we meet again..
You say that all you have left are memories but this is not so.
You see, when I took leave of my earthly body I left a little something behind for you.
You can't touch it, hold it or examine it, for what I left behind is far too uninhibited for confinement.
I left in your tender care a piece of my soul.
I placed it right next to your own which is quite fitting as we were always side by side in our earthly life together.
I love you too much to have left you with nothing but memories that tend to fade and grow cloudy as the years go by.
I love you too much to have vanished without a trace. How selfish it would be of me to remove love and light from your life.
I understand your tears, each one you shed is testament to your love for me and I am honored and humbled.
But don't forget the good things we shared - remember and smile. This is an honor for me as well.
When you need me I will be here.
Close your eyes, relax, take slow, deep breaths and picture me in your mind.
Shut off the world and your notions of what you think death is and give me a chance.
Look for the subtle signs I send you.
Don't stop being proud of me, I am a friend to be proud of, I am still your friend and soul mate.
Don't memorialize the death of my body but instead honor and celebrate my never-ending life for it is eternal
and forever as is my love for you.
Until we meet again...

The Way

In the darkness I turned to go; my last day's

done; I'll miss you so. No time even to say

goodbye or to lock the tears spilling from

your eyes.

That's when I heard you call my name;

I knew right then I must turn back to help ease your pain.

Since I've no voice with which to speak,

its whispers in your dreams I'll make.

Ease your heart and rest your mind, my

time with you was the best of kind. I couldn't

have asked for a better friend, we've shared

our journey to the very end.

There's one final thing you need to know, I'll

whisper in your ear before I go....."I'm leaving

first to find the way...so I can lead you back here with me on your last day."  -(SLong)

Love the picture of Algy in his jim-jams.  But I'm so sorry that it was your sweet, gentle boy's time to go.  

Quote

The guilt is killing me. And his absence is deafening.

We will always second-guess our decisions and wish our pets could have made it a little longer, or with less pain, or ... .  We would not be satisfied until they lived forever.  And then we would feel guilty for dying first and leaving them.  You made the absolute best choices you could at the time, and Algy's last earthly moments were filled with blessed relief and the blessed presence of his loved ones.  He deserves to be mourned, but I hope in time the memories will be those of his wonderful life, and not his leaving it.

You should not feel any guilt. You did right by him. You ended his pain and opened the door to your pain. You put him first.

I think we all know the sorrow you feel. It is a horrible pain in your heart. Just remember, it doesnt get better, it gets different and you learn to live with it.

Run free sweet boy and know you are loved.

I’m so sorry for your loss. He was so sweet looking.

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.
