New Year's Eve Without Oakley
2012 started as an amazing year for us - I ran my 1st half marathon at the age of 55, we moved to our home at the lake, I retired from my totally stressful job and went to work for a more leisurely not to mention appreciative employer, Seger and all of his health issues are well managed, and then wham! November 23rd we lost Oakley to hemangio - suddenly and unexpectedly. I am trying to focus on the positive - he did not suffer, we were able to be with him until the end, we held him and talked to him while he crossed the Bridge .... but I am so sad......
I never in a million years thought I would be without Oakley - Seger is here destroying the 7th tennis ball we have given him in the last week. He seems to be lost without Oakley. DH and I are so sad. We can't wait to have Oakley back with us. Today I bought a nice frame to put Oak's picture in, and a beautiful lamp that will forever burn beside him. I guess we are doing everything that grieving people do and I hope at some point I find peace. I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. I hope and pray a year from now I am watching Seger destroy yet another tennis ball. Hug your fur kids tonight - I would give anything to be able to hug Oakley just one more time.
Forever in our hearts - Oakley 21/10/03 - 23/11/12 and Seger 21/10/03 - 23/03/14 - Our hearts and home are empty.
