Dear Nina,

It's been alittle over 12 hours since we said goodbye. I still can't believe we had to let you go. I feel like my heart left when u did. It was the hardest thing to do, but I know you knew we were there with you. I couldn't watch you suffer and I held you until you were truely gone. You never left my side and I wasn't about to leave yours. Me and Daniel are lost without you here. I'm not ready to move your bed or put up your medicine just yet. When we got home last night from the vet, me and Daniel sat on the couch and talked about the first night you came home from Aunt Jo's. I brought you home the night Aunt Jo passed because the lady you were going home with couldn't take you that night because she went into labor. You gave us 8 wonderful years and had a wonderful life with your sister and brother. You have been my little shadow for the past 8 years and I'm missing you not being beside me right now. Everyone tells us that time will heal our broken hearts but I don't think that I will ever get over this. You will always have a special place in my heart sweet Nina. I know that you and Aunt Jo are together now and that makes me smile. You loved her too. I will get your ashes back next week and plan on spreading some on Aunt Jo's grave and we will keep the rest with us. You had two families that loved you dearly. Phibie and Ty both know something is wrong and I believe Phibie knows you are gone. They will miss you too, Phibie more than Ty I'm sure :) Just know that there won't be a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Until we meet again my sweet Nina! We all love you!


Nicole, Daniel, Phibie, and Ty
