Dear Ellie,

It's only been two days since I had to make the hardest decision of my life..and that was to let you go. You were only 6 years old with your birthday being next month. So young, So Pretty and So full of life! But God was ready for you! You will always be my baby girl, my Baby Bear! I remember when I first laid eyes on you...This little ball of gray and white fur...with those big green/yellow eyes and your courious attitude! I knew right then you were mine! You were there for me when times were ruff and never judged me. When those guys in my life decided to leave you were always there! You knew how to make Mama feel better and I can still feel your small body laying on my chest when we would watch tv and cuddle in bed. I miss you so much! And think about you every minute of every day. I wish I was able to save you and get rid of that cancer that took you away...I wanted to keep you but I knew you were in pain. You were a fighter though. I hope I didn't make the wrong choice but I could tell you were no longer yourself. I wish I had more years with you but we will meet again soon. Please know Ellie Bear that mama loves you so much and misses you!!! I still look around for you and feel your spirit. I hope your having fun up there..No more pain and now you can eat!! I love you Bear!
