There are no words to describe the pain, there are no words to make the tears stop, there are no words to explain to my heart, you are gone, all I have is emptiness and a broken heart. I grieve for you. I miss you! You would have been 10 years old in Feb. I remember the day I brought you home. I always truly believe, you would always be here. Its quiet now, here at home. All my thoughts are on you, looking back on all the pictures of you. Remembering taking you to the lake, playing hide and seek, going bye-bye, playing fetch, remembering the time you were only 6months old, you clipped me from behind during a game of chase. I swore I heard my leg and hip snap out of place. I was screaming my head off, for daddy to call 911. lol The neighbor rushed over from across the street. I finally got up and you justed looked at me, with those big brown eyes. I could not be mad at you. You licked my tears away. You were truly the Best Friend anyone could ever have. Stayed my side, even last week when I spent my Thanksgiving week sick, you put your pain aside and came by my side to make me feel better. I held you until the end, I felt your last breath, Our eyes never parted, until you finally went to sleep. Even after the doctor said yo were gone, I stayed laying next to you holding you. Duke, Mommy and Daddy Love You!
