Good seeing you again, I've thought of you often. I'm so sorry you haven't found Buster.
I can't imagine what you and your family have gone through, not knowing has got to be the hardest.

Never give up or lose faith, miracles happen all the time.

I still light real candles on the mantle for him. And I still cry on facebook when I see happy reunions after 6 months, 2 years, 7 years...owners get the dogs back. I wonder why not us and am glad for them and sad for me. Never knew it could linger when you couldn't say goodbye or couldn't stop a thief.... I go on with life and the world didn't stop. But neither did the part of me still covered with his sweet paw prints. I may not log in much here. Please know it means I am giving my all to those around me and trusting that God has this. He still hears my prayers, I know. Thank you to all of you kind wonderful people that care. ---Busters mom
Buster's Mom,

A lot of time has passed, over 5 years. Little things said at different times, things also not said, no hits on your microchip.... we put a grave stone down by the other pet headstones. Pretty sure now that you died the same day you went missing. I can’t change what he did and will never know why. But I can stop searching and bring peace to you, sweet Buster. I still cry writing this. The years searching - and the whole time they knew- who does that?! You brought us fun and joy and a special friend to my boy and to each of us seperately. My heart broke a thousand different times searching, hoping, calling each lead.. I will see you again. I met some amazing people on the way to here. I don’t hate- that only destroys who I am. I’m not up for ‘love thy neighbor’ yet but I don’t hate. Thank you everyone on this forum. Love your sweet golden face silly dogs one extra for us sometimes. For my Buster. Candle lit
