My Best Friend


Hannah
Feb 2001 - Dec 2012

Yesterday I lost my best friend and special family member.
She was precious to all of us and is going to be missed beyond measure.

We did everything together when I was home and she even came to work
with me now and then. 
She was always by my side, no matter how early 
I got up. But even better than that, each day was that much more 
special with her in it.
She was always happy and greeted everyone with a "baby" (toy)
in her mouth.
On Christmas, she always opened the "first present of Christmas".
She was always so excited to do that...
then she would continue to go to each person and help
 them open their gifts too!

It just won't be the same without her.
I have no doubt that she made me a better human.

So sorry to hear of your "friends" passing... we too lost our dear friend "Jamie"... albeit about a little over a year ago.. It's hard to replace them that's for sure. We are finally to the point that maybe we will start looking for a new friend.
My DH just mentioned a minute ago about how not long after we got her, he had gone to answer the front door and when he got back... ahem, one of his RB burgers was missing. She gave he a look like... well, you were gonna share right!?
Hugs to you

So sorry to hear of your loss. Our pets are so important to us and hold such a special place in our hearts. When they pass on we feel as though our heart will truely break and never be whole again - but it will in time. Take heart in knowing that you gave Hannah a wonderful life.

Wishing you great comfort during this sad time! Hannah sounds like she was such a blessing!

Bev said...

Oh, I am so sorry about your loss. As far as I can see, the only thing wrong with dogs is that they leave us far too early. Your baby was lucky to have you to take care of her and love her. I have a dog 13 and one 15 so am dreading that day. My thoughts and prayers are with you. xoxo

This seems to be happening to so many people this month. It is very hard to say good-bye to a joyful member of the family who only want to make you happy all the time. We just lost our grand-dog and Grandma here cried and cried.
So sorry you had to endure this pain. God bless.

my dear friend, i am so very sorry that hannah passed away. my heart is breaking for you and your family. she sounds like the perfect little girl to have as a best friend. just carry all of the memories that you have of her in your heart and she will always be there right by your side...through the veil. you may not "see" her, but she will see you. and then someday, when we all leave this earth, we will be together again with the ones we loved..furry and human.

all my love,
becky

So very sorry to hear of your loss, Sinta. Your tribute to your furry "pal", Hannah, was beautifully written.

I just caught up with your postings and am so very, very sorry to hear about Hannah. My own Sadie Anne is a rescue girl and is my world ... she goes EVERYWHERE with me. DH and I often comment that we can't remember what it was like before her. My thoughts are with you and hopes that your heart is healed with the warm memories of Hannah and her life with you. God bless! Linda
