Loss

I am sad to say that Arwen has passed.
There is so much to say about her and her affect on my life.
She was a gift from my husband. We got her when I was dealing with a very difficult time with Arthritis. She would sit and cuddle with me when I would feel my worst. She brought me a lot of joy and happiness over the last 6 years and there will never be another like her. I don't know how she always knew when I needed her the most, but she always did and never let me down.
I will miss her very very much.

Thank you all for all the kind words and encouragement.
Stacy

So very sorry for your loss, it is amzing how 4 footed beings climb into your heart, Their love is unconditional and ours in return is the same. I think that is why they always know when to take special care of us.

My deepest condolences. Saying goodbye to a pet is one of the most devastating times I've ever been through but the loss and grief was far outweighed by the everlasting love I got from them.

I hope that you have some comfort in knowing that you and Arwen are in the thoughts of so many people.
