I thought of you yesterday and I felt the heaviness that your heart must be feeling as you are going through these dreaded changes without one of your best friends. I admire your ability to write about Reno so beautifully with such pride and gratefulness even though the tears must have been flowing.

Reno must be having the best time with Phoenix. I imagine them behaving like little kids as they watch over you with their own sense of pride and gratefulness and free from the limiting burdens of life. Enjoy Reno, it sounds like the rewards of heaven are very much deserved.

Best wishes as you continue on your healing journey.

Laurie I think it's very safe to say your little angel Reno will never be forgotten here on the forum...his memories are with us all. I only hope it's not too long before those tears of yours turn to smiles...

So many of us grew to love Reno through your pictures and stories. And what an inspiration his living with hemangio has been and will be to so many. Because of your chronicling his life here I felt like I knew him. When I first signed up at GRF I began reading about him and following his life. I showed my wife Reno's picture and told her about his story. We were both exclaiming "what a beautiful, happy boy". His body may have given out, but his spirit lives on and always will.

Oh Laurie, my heart goes out to you. I know what you're going through because I've been there as so many other members have been. The pain and the loss of our sweet Goldens who are no longer with us is so deep and profound.

Reno was such a special boy, so sweet and very special of Maddox to be making the album. I know it will always be treasured.

I hope with time your heart heals and you will find peace.

I'm new to this forum, & did not know Reno, but from your tribute to him he was obviously a wonderful & greatly-loved member of your family. I am so sorry for your loss. I cried reading your tribute. I know that time will eventually heal the pain in your heart, but time will never erase all those precious, precious memories you have of him. He will never be far from your side, even if you cannot physically see him .....he will be there.

The tears started again while I read your tribute. It's true that we definitely miss them just being there--I'm still dealing with that. I'm sure Reno and Phoenix are having a great time together at the Bridge!

In tears reading your post. I cried a week ago, at the beautiful but sad poem. I'm crying again in reading this. You made his parting the most comfortable that you could possibly make it for your boy, but it is still so sad to send them ahead. The 1 week and all anniversaries thereafter are so hard. I hope that knowing that you gave him a wonderful life and made his last days the best they could be, will help you through this hard time. Reno gave and will always give us hope after such a terrifying diagnosis of the possibility of more sweet time.

A lovely tribute to Reno. Reno's story was one of the first ones I read when I joined the forum and he was such an inspiration. A beautiful gentle boy that will never be forgotten on this forum. Sending you and his brothers a big hug, they must be missing him so much.
He will always be watching over you all.
