Unbearable grief

This is the first I have even been able to look at the Rainbow Bridge section since I lost Chance on June 23rd.
I bought this on ebay and had it framed next to Chance's portrait.

I'm so sorry for your loss and the heartache you're feeling.
That is beautiful and really sums it up.

Very sorry for your loss, I agree with Carolina Mom the words are just beautiful. Would you like me to add Chance to the Rainbow Bridge List?.

I am so sorry. Chance was a handsome guy. I think it is the one and only really bad thing about having a Golden; they tear your heart out when they leave.

Thank you for your kind words.
I knew it would be bad but had no idea how bad. Goldens are so special.

You may always miss him but it won't always hurt so badly.

I am very sorry for your loss. I was always fond of your boy.

We cant prepare ourselves and it can be bad beyond the words. It has been over 8 years I lost my Buddy and still when I read posts at this section I can feel the same raw pain like it just happened. Hugs!

I cried when I read this.
I lost Bear on June 23 too, and still haven't been able to look at pictures of him.
It hurts so bad, my heart goes out to you
