This letter from mama to Jezabel was written on Monday, May 24, 2010

Dear Jezabel,

We had so many nick-names for you - Jeza-butt-bell, Fluffin', Jezi, and I always called you my girl. Oh how I love my girl! We miss everything about you and the house will never be the same. We come home to an empty house now, but sometimes we think we see you snoozing in a corner. The other day I stepped on my slipper and I thought it was you! I was eating chicken the other night and just the smell of it reminded me how you'd jump up on the chair to be closer to the people food. In the middle of the night when I wake up and can't get back to sleep - I look for you. I expect you to find me like you usually did. I miss you and I know you miss us too. I hope you're happy and I hope you understand. We had such a strong bond; it'll never go away. We had our own communication, and you were in Heaven on my lap when I pet you the special way only I knew how to do. You made us laugh every day. We made up songs about you and we still sing them. You were the best lovin' girl kitty in the world. So much spunk and personality! When I traveled, I worried about you but you were fine. For 17 years you were fine. I expected you to live forever because I couln't bear the thought of losing you. I hope you come back to visit often. I miss your meow. I miss your funny way of communicating with us. I miss your eyes and your fur and your fluffy tail. I miss the warmth of you lying next to me. I wish I could still hold you - but I will hold you in my memory, in my heart, in my dreams, in my thoughts forever. I miss you little girl and I love you forever.

Love,

mama

This letter from Jilll - Mummy to Jimmy was written on Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Dear Jimmy,

I saw you on Saturday in the vet hospital and you seemed so happy to see us and you seemed to be getting better and yet that same night, May 15, we got a call in the night that you had died. I miss you so and I can't stop crying.

You were my grand-dog. Beautiful, so smart, big ears, tail that never stopped wagging. a coat that gleamed and you gave your mummy so many kisses. A very unusual little dog - cross between a dachshund and a chocolate lab -with litttle stubby legs. He was both fierce and gentle. You're everywhere Jimmy but you're not here. What can I do - I miss you so.

Please if someone is going through the same, please write me

Missing You,

This letter from Tara Weightman to Daisy was written on Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Dear Daisy,

I am so sad that your cycle was ready to pass around. I really loved your ablity to make me smile, even at the hight of my Bipolar, you saved my life so many times I am very sad that I could not do the same for you. I remember your bouncing energy every time I entered a room, didn't matter if I was gone for 5 minutes or 8 hours, you loved me just the way I am, not judgemental. You loved me and looked passed my Mental Illness. I loved how every morning you would like me in the face not allowing me to stay in bed all day, you wanted your walk and where excited that the morning finally came and once again we would go for a walk. I learned from You that love is always possible.

I will always love you, My Daisy-May

Love,

Tara Weightman

This letter from Jordan to Irma Cujo was written on Monday, May 17, 2010Irma Cujo

Dear Irma Cujo,

You left so suddenly. They always said you had a heart murmur but nothing ever came of it. We played in the car as we drove home. You nibbled on your knuckles and licked my hand. But when we got home you ran up to your other Mommy and fell over. Within hours your heart failed. That is impossible, your heart was your strongest feature for you loved me.

Impossible, irrational, stubborn, difficult me. Irma, you loved me.

You have been gone 36 hours now. I keep seeing you. I am not sure why I see you. Buddy your big brother dog has realized now you are gone. He is confused. The cats are indifferent, but aren't they always.

Irma, you are my best friend. You went to work with me everyday. You kept me accountable for myself and life. When my MS acted up your look of compassion would encourage me to get up and play with you or take you out. Now what can I do. Today I stayed home from work and sat on my butt. I tried to nap. I tried to sleep but I would wake up and find myself looking for you.

I can't find you. I know you're here. You're in my heart and my mind. It's kind of funny, you had a lot of Facebook and Twitter fans, they all miss you. I guess your personality was just so big.

I am sorry for any pain you may have been in. I hope there was not much. I did what I could. I tried to kiss and love you every waking moment and had I known I can't say I would do anything different, the doctor said your heart was going to fail, I am glad I was able to spend my time with you. My only wish was we rescued you when you were 7 or 8 and I only had you 6 years.

I miss you so much my very best friend.

Love,

Jordan

This letter from Mommy to Jay bird was written on Sunday, May 16, 2010

Dear Jay bird,

I'm not coping well without you, your little voice calling me from another room . Your big birdie kisses , your laughing . I miss it all. I would rush home from work everyday for the last 12 years just to see you. I loved your hugs and I loved how much you loved me and relied on me. I can't believe your gone . This is the most painful thing I've ever had to face.I miss you soooo much. You were the most affectionate loving parrot I have ever seen in my life and I'm so happy you got to spend yours with me. I loved you from the day I met you and I will love and miss you till the day I die. My home is quiet without you and my heart hurts terribly. All I see in my head was you perking up and getting happy when I came to the hospital to say goodbye. That will forever be the worst day of my life! I love you baby boy , it's so much more than I love you

Love,

Mommy

This letter from The Ms to Rosie was written on Monday, May 10, 2010

Dear Rosie,

My Rose. My sweet, sweet Rosie. Not sure why it's been so hard to accept my "see you later" that beautiful afternoon of March 8th. I kissed you on your head and left as I couldn't bring myself to say goodbye. I'm sorry you were hurting and I'm even more sorry we couldn't do more for you. I am not sure why I still cry when I think of you. You were a black and white nightmare tamed by few but incredibly loyal and loved. I will forever remember how Tim described your last hour. In that final sixty minutes, you were exactly what you should have been all along. We know you always meant well, despite your actions proving otherwise. I thank you for finding Red Dog and Black Dog to check on me when I'm away. They are truly an extension of you. In the last few days, I keep expecting you to be there despite two months since you left us. You are a beautful soul no matter how many shoes we lost, no matter how much of a mess the carpets have become. You have made us all stronger in some way. I know that Jon is taking care of you up there and you can eat all the chicken and pizza you want. The wind is calm, storms have subsided and you can even open a pizza box with your paw holding it closed.

All our love.

Peace,

The Ms
