I feel it too
by: Lisa

Yes I know what you are talking about, I second guess my self every day and it's going on 8 months, I'd like to be able to tell you it gets easier over time but it doesn't. You just learn to live without them but the pain, guilt and lonliness is still there. I'm so sorry for your loss. Lisa

The Last Battle
by: Ed

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.

Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end And hold me firm and speak to me Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.

Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

I hope this poem helps you Sue .. What you did for Hunter was the greatest act of love, and kindness one can do for another ..

You gave him 9 wonderful years that he most likely would not have had if you'd not been sent by God to "rescue" him .. I went through this one year ago this month when my beloved (a rescue also) Co Co was devastated by an illness medicine could not cure - I miss her every single day but in my heart of hearts, I know I did the right thing by releasing her spirit from her broken body..

God bless you Sue - Hunter will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge

No you didn't kill your sweet Hunter, but like me this is how the experience leaves you feeling, like a traitor. Well let me tell you what my family and my friends told me, they told me that they had the best life ever, they knew they were loved and that they are not gone but their soul is living in your heart, so know that you did the best you could for Hunter, all my love, Jean.
