You don't know how much my husband and me appreciate this site and all of the support we have received while grieving the loss of our beloved Tunaka.
Our story I'm sure is not much different than any of yours. For 11 1/2 years now it has only been Tunaka, my husband and me as we have been unable to have children. Some of you will relate when I say that he was our child.
Losing him this past Monday was one of the most painful things either my husband or me have ever had to experience. I still haven't stopped crying. We did however find relief today in bringing his ashes home and knowing that he is here at home with us where he belongs.
While browsing the site we noticed that we can add a song to Tunaka's residency page. You can only imagine my reaction when I scrolled down and saw "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as a selection. This was our song.
No, really.... ever since Tunaka was 3 months old my husband and me would sing this song to him. He always participated by howling in melody. Tunaka loved to sing with his pack... his family. A part of me wonders now if maybe in some unforeseen way we were preparing him and ourselves for this moment. Thanks to all of your support and our memory of singing our song we do believe that we will meet our most loved one again someday over the rainbow.....
