In Memory of Jasper

My dear friend, Michelle, lost her beloved Jasper on Monday.
I just wanted her to know I am thinking of her and know how much it hurts to lose a fur baby.



There's something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart -- it needs to mend.
Though some may say, "It's just a pet,"
I know I've lost a friend.
You've brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante,
A friend I won't forget.
You'll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.
-- Susanne Taylor

I'm so sorry for your loss, Michelle.

I have a young fur friend and I have always wondered how hard it would be to loose her. My heart goes out to Michelle.

Jane, you are such a dear and amazing friend. This memorial is so beautiful, and so appreciated! Love the picture you took of my little guy -- sure do miss having him around.

If you don't mind, I want to add this picture and poem to some things I'm collecting for a scrapbook about "J". Fighting tears, going to go for now . . .

Big hugs,
