    I just wanted to reach out to you again, on this first day after. For me in the past, awakening on that first morning after is probably the very worst moment of all. When I remember what has happened and what I've lost. When I know that nothing can be changed. The pain seems unbearable.

    Being able to come to our family here and write about my feelings has always been my solace. If it will help you in any way, too, we're surely here and will stay by your side. Mini has now been added to our special memorial thread of honor:

    If you'd ever wish for us to add a photo link to her memorial line, it would be our privilege to do so. At any time now or in the future, you can also always add a tribute thread of your own to our "In Loving Memory" forum. But most importantly, you can always come right back here again to share stories or memories or just to tell us how you're doing.

    Best wishes to you and your family always. And please know that Mini will always be honored by her family here, as well.

    Thank you so much for adding Mini to the memorial list!
    When I saw her name I cried. My little girl, never forgotten.

    My husband and I cried a lot this weekend, but we know time will ease the pain.

    Thank you for everything.

    Dear Lilly,

    I am just so so sorry to hear about your sweet Mini. We are never ready no matter the circumstances for "that" day to arrive. I have no doubt that Mini left this life filled with the love you gave her all those years and she will carry that love with her always. One day we will all see our babies again....I firmly believe this. When your job here is done and it is your time to cross that Great Divide, your precious little girl will fly across the Bridge into your arms with Bas right behind, both of them covering your face with kisses. Til then, know you are being watched over just as you watched over them.

    My deepest sympathies,

    The Last Battle

    If it should be that I grow frail and weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep,
    Then will you do what must be done,
    For this ó the last battle ó canít be won.
    You will be sad I understand,
    But donít let grief then stay your hand,
    For on this day, more than the rest,
    Your love and friendship must stand the test.

    We have had so many happy years,
    You wouldnít want me to suffer so.
    When the time comes, please, let me go.
    Take me to where to my needs theyíll tend,
    Only, stay with me till the end
    And hold me firm and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see.

    I know in time you will agree
    It is a kindness you do to me.
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    From pain and suffering I have been saved.
    Donít grieve that it must be you
    Who has to decide this thing to do;
    Weíve been so close ó we two ó these years,
    Donít let your heart hold any tears.

    "May you know that absence is full of tender presence and that nothing is ever lost or forgotten." John O'Donahue, "Eternal Echoes"

    Death is not a changing of worlds as most imagine, as much as the walls of this world infinitely expanding.
