Happy Easter

It was a quiet Easter; a simple ham (the awesome one in the red foil from Costco), scalloped potatoes, asparagus and a glass of chardonnay. My mom and I played cards and listened to music. We talked about everything. I texted friends and family to tell them I love them.

About an hour after my last entry, the vet called and said they had Louie's remains. I went to pick them up, and it was a bittersweet surprise. The box is just lovely; and there was a surprise in the package; an imprint of Lou's paw. When I saw that I broke down and cried and cried and cried. I was so impressed with the presentation, and again I had the people at the vet tearing up. I can't help it, I'm very emotional when it comes to the ones I love. I don't think I will ever be over it. Also in the package was a beautiful memoir called "The Rainbow Bridge". I will post it later. I'm going to frame it along with a picture of Boo-bear for my shrine to him.

When my roomies dog passed, a similar package was waiting for her. I remember seeing her tear up, and I thought to myself "How nice!" I had not had a vet do that for me, and it is a lovely gesture.

hope you are doing well.
