Dear Casey Jane,
You left on December 19th, 2011 with such grace, dignity & peace.
I miss you terribley, my little gal, but know you are in a better place.
You changed my life and I will be forever grateful to you for showing me your unconditional love.
You were always my best friend, my little buddy, my "Casey Baba".
You were my trusted confidante, my snuggle buddy, my pretty girl, my Bichon sidekick, my daily walking partner and my love...always, always at my side.
I hope I cared for you enough and showed you how much I loved you each and every day we had together...from the day you walked into my life, at almost 3 years of age, on June 10th, 1998 until the day you had to leave, just a few months past your 16th birthday. I held you in my arms that December morning, close to my heart where you belonged, with my face buried in your soft fluff and let you go.
There are so many things I remember & miss about you. Like saying "breakfast time" and "supper time" each day and seeing you get all excited, or getting ready for a bike ride and putting you into your own seat as you stomped your little paws in anticipation, the times you rode on the seadoo with me, your little ears blowing in the wind, or how your ears flapped up and down when you ran, and the way you snuffled in the sand and rolled in the wet grass...I even miss your snoring!
I will always be your loving mama and will never forget you.
Until we meet again my sweet pea. Thank you.
