Has it only been three weeks?
A friend said it best in an email:
"It's not supposed to be easy. If the death of a beloved pet ever becomes no big deal, I'll know there's something terribly wrong with my heart and that I should never have a cat again. The measure of our grief is the measure of our love. It's the price we pay. Much as it hurts, I think I would rather suffer through it than to miss out on the joy of my cats."
Well said. Especially the last sentence.
I miss you, my crazy, quirky buddy. I miss you so very much.
