It has been one year today since I lost my best friend and campanion of 13 years, and it still feels like yesterday.  My heart still aches to see him and my arms reach to hold him but I cant reach him.  Over the last year I spent a great deal of time wishing I would just go to the bridge and see him again.  I am starting to realize with some help that god has a different plan then that.  I know he wouldnt want that either.  I hope someday to find peace in his loss instead of the hurt.  I know he couldnt stay and it would have been wrong to make him hurt so I wouldnt. It is just much harder for my heart to except.  I am asking for anyone who wishes to light a candle at 4pm today in rememberence of not only my Daunte Drey but all the furbabies that have crossed the bridge. When they look down and see all the lights they will all know that they may not be here but will never be forgotten. Dauntesmom

Dauntesmom,  I can surely understand how you feel. It's been 7 months for me and I'm sure I'll still be missing Scottie just as much at one year.  Idon't think that will ever go away until I'm finally reunited with him some day.  While I understand that feeling of wanting to just go ahead and join them in the next life, I'm so glad you know that God has a plan for your life.  Our life spans are longer than theirs so it is probable that we will lose them first.  However, I have to trust that God knows what he is doing.  We have to keep learning those hard lessons that we can only learn in this physical body so we can be prepared to live fully in the next life.  We will be with our babies again and then it will be more wonderful and for longer than we can even imagine!  
I don't know if I'll be where I can light a candle today at 4:00 today but I will surely say a special prayer for you and Daunte at 4:00.  You can count on that.  May God bless you & give you peace on this memorial day.
