I Lost My Best Friend Today....

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563

 March 11th....is the day that we will always remember....my Father passed away nine years ago today...I miss him every day and hope that he would be proud of me...of all his children....and know that my Mother, at 90, and each of us work to that goal every day. 

 Cosmo  About a month ago....we had our vet the house....and both Cosmo and Magic got their physicals. Cosmo is 18 and Magic is 8. Cosmo was losing weight but still eating and playing and being my best friend....knowing when I needed cuddling, a kiss, a snuggle. And early this evening...Cosmo, on the very same day....and nearly at the same time...went to be with my Dad and give him the snuggles and kisses that we no longer can.  The tears flow freely as I write this...it is a kind of therapy for me. We know that had a long and lovely life....and he was all the best of a best friend any one could want or need. Here is is...he had a tail he was especially proud of....always regally high in the air...and a sort of mane that made him so much the friendly lion.

     I love you Cosmo...you have just left us now...quietly.....Be Dad's forever friend as you were to us for almost 2 decades.daisies

Sally and David--I am so sorry to hear of your loss...losses. It is obvious how much you love your father still and how very sad that Cosmo left you on the same day. There is comfort in knowing that they are both in a better place and how lucky for Cosmo that he had a family that loved him so very much.

Oh, no! I'm so sorry Cosmo is gone. Russel and I were out celebrating his birthday while you were losing a loved one and remember a loved one.

I'm actually over here as a messenger for Russel today since I have quit commenting. He wanted me to let you know that he left a little surprise in his most recent blog post at his Russel Ray Photos WordPress blog. You can find it here: http://russelrayphotos2.com/2012/03/13/the-city-of-long-beach/

I think you'll like it, and I hope it cheers you up a little with Cosmo gone.

My sincerest condolences. The loss of a pet is as heavy as the loss of a family member, because a pet IS family. We know we will likely outlive our pets...but we have them anyway because of the mountains of love and joy they bring to our lives. Cherish those memories. Now, give Magic a hug, because surely, Magic is feeling the loss, too.

Take care

I cannot thank you all for the warm thoughts we have received during this difficult time. Yes...Magic too is feeling lost without the big brother who always took the very best care of him...from giving him a bath to sharing toys and treats....if more people had Cosmo's personality and spirit, the world would be a far different place.
