Rest in Peace My Sweet Boy
My little boy passed away at 2:30 PM this last Thursday. It was untimely, unfortunate, and devastating, but his liver was failing and his body just got tired of fighting.
I adopted Ted when he was barely and month and a half old. He was the runt of his litter and in my eyes irresistable. It would be the first time in my life I would experience love at first sight. For the longest time, he was my whole heart. We were two peas in a pod. As we grew and matured together, so did our family. Charles easily stepped into the role of Dad, and Lucy the annoying little sister. He loved us with a fierceness I can't begin to explain, and we loved him just the same. He was loyal, and he was our protector. He was crazy, yet he brought sanity to our household. He was a gift; the most precious gift no amount of money could buy or replace. If you were to open up my chest to peek at my heart, you would find a paw print. He left his mark and taught us what selfless love truly is. Our lives will never be the same. He was wonderful.

Ted, we will miss you everyday until we get to see you again. Be a good boy.
