This letter from Mama to Neumann was written on Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Dear Neumann,

I hated letting you go today. I can't stop crying. But I feel lucky too. Lucky to have had you for so long. You meant so much to us. And brought so much joy. How you watched over our baby girl and gave her your tail when she learned to swim. How you nudged Papa when her blanket slipped off. You loved us unconditionally as we did you. Thank you for embodying gentility and tenderness in our lives. We love you always. I hope you have met your Mommie again. I see you jumping around like a young dog, no pains, no hardship and my heart smiles. You are love.
