Today marks two weeks since Milo’s passing. We are still mourning the loss and we are roaming around in a fog, with this huge hole in our hearts. We write poems or little notes in our journals, and we are trying to understand what we are going through together and apart.
Last Sunday we visited Milo’s grave at Bubbling Well Pet Cemetery in Napa, Calif – it is so peaceful and beautiful there, nicer than most human cemeteries I’ve visited. Milo rests in a meadow surrounded by trees, near a creek, overlooking the wine country. What could be better? Nothing. When we visit, we are diverted a bit from the pain and we find ourselves focusing on the beauty and nature of this place. Afterward, we headed up Silverado Trail to have lunch and wine. We shared stories on that ‘booger’ as we often called him, or the ‘baby’. We are mending.
Many of you have posted the kindest words that have helped so tenderly and dearly–thank you for that. Many have just plain made me cry and sob. I know that many of you have lost pets in the past and you have felt our pain and, like us, will never forget your precious buddy. We are know kindred spirits in this way.
In any event, I came across this lovely blog that I wanted to share with you, written entirely by someone else. It has helped me an inch and I am grateful.
