My sweet Patches,
Mommy misses you terribly! You were a great companion for 17 years. I was glad to get a chance to say goodbye to you and hold you one last time before they put you to sleep. I wish I could taking that cancerous mess on your jaw away so you wouldn't have had to go to sleep. I know you're in a better place playing in the middle on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I think of you all the time.
