'Naya & Jean'

Two Years Ago Today

It's quite unbelievable to me that it's been two years since I lost Naya. Really, it doesn't seem like it's been that long and the missing her hasn't subsided. I still cry when I let my mind relive that day and I think about her at some point each and every day. I wondered in the beginning stages of my grief how long it would take me to get over losing her and two years later, I can say I haven't gotten over it and never will. I will always love and miss her.

Recently, I received an email from a dear woman who had recently suffered a loss of her beloved cat. She wrote to me and said that my story somehow comforted her and that meant so much to me. I have read some of the comments that have been posted to me and truly appreciate the support. I hope that what I have written will continue to help others.

I recently started volunteering with a pet hospital that has a pet loss grief program. I hadn't heard of anything like this before and am hoping one day to get up the courage to go to it. I think it would help me and perhaps I could help others deal with their grief.
