Dear Sandy, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Your son is a lucky guy to have a mom who truly understands the scope of the loss of our best friends, and who encourages him to talk about his feelings. What a gift you are giving him! You made the right decision for your beloved Kiki. I know how terrible it feels, but it really is the greatest gift of love in the world. You ended her suffering knowing your own suffering would just begin. No matter how prepared we are to say farewell, we can never be truly prepared for the emptiness and sorrow we feel when they are gone from our sight. My heart goes out to you and your son as you find your path to healing. It can be a roller coaster of one step forward, one step back for a while, but in time, the sharp ache begins to fade and the gratitude of having known such perfect friendship begins to win the battle. You, your son, and your Angel Kiki are in my thought and prayers. I have sent a message to my Bridge Kitties; Bingo (aka: King Bing, The God Cat), Buddy (aka: Screamer) and T.J. (aka: The Heart of My Heart) to welcome Kiki to their new realm of absolutely perfection and to help her visit you to let you know that she is always with you, tucked into your hearts forever. xoxoxo Susie
