You have stated it so eloquently and so truthfully. You and I visit often and keep up with eachother. Your first post is burned in my heart and mind. Your pain for the loss of sweet Remy screamed from the page. But you reached out and we all responded. Just like with my first post, I had replies and comfort immediately. You are so right saying this is an amazing network of friends. We all come here after losing the "one thing we believed we could not live without." This is the one place that when friends here respond, "I understand. I know how you feel", they really do. It's not lip service. It is heartfelt and true. I know what you have posted will serve to encourage new ones to return and let us listen. It will remind old ones their input is still needed. It is a tribute to dear Remy, that, although your life has been anything but easy, his love was able to bring you love, comfort and friendship in what can be a cruel, cruel world. It is a tribute to ALL companions, past, present and future. It shows how their presence can help with healing of all kinds. That is why we show honour to them with our grief. We know we can never repay what they've given us, but we can go on. We can love again, for they have paved the way. To all friends at the Bridge I send you thanks and love.
We miss you with every beat of our hearts.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
