Losing a Beloved Pet
George Carlin once said that every pet is like a tiny tragedy waiting to happen. Last October I lost Ivy, my cat of 21 years. Today we lost Gypsy, a beloved pet of Nathan's family. I cannot imagine going home to Nathan's family's house without Gypsy greeting me with kisses at the door. She was a good dog, full of love and a dog-like lust for life. I will never get over how strange it feels to have a loved one taken from you so suddenly, and I will never stop being thankful for the time I've had with the loved ones I have lost. So today is to think of Gypsy and all of the others we have had to say good bye to too soon.
