We Say Good-bye


Today is a very sad day for Ken and I, Lucy passed away. She was improving, then suddenly went on a rapid decline. Doctor Meadows, our vet, called to say it was time to let her go. Ken went to be with her, but by the time he got to her, she was gone.
This little girl was the light of our lives. We're so going to miss her sweet personality and disposition, her quirky, funny habits, her big brown eyes, and constant love and companionship she offered to both of us. We will forever be thankful to Doctor Meadows and the Animal Hospital of Lakeport staff, who gave their all, and their time to help Lucy. Words can't even express our gratitude. Even with his own surgery on the other side of the state, Bart kept in contact with us as his staff updated him daily with her progress. We'll never forget what they've done.
It's going to take a long time to get over losing our little Lucy, but I know she's now out of pain, and running with her mother in Heaven.
Good-bye sweetheart. We'll always love you.

OH Laurie! My heart breaks for you and Ken. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet but so much harder when they appear to be improving. And also with Christmas so close. I lost my Beau in 2000 and last year my Daisy right at Christmas. Just seems to make it worse I think.

Know you, Ken and your other pets are in my thoughts and prayers and Lucy is romping in heaven fully healed. HUGS!!!

I am sorry to hear about Lucy. She was a favorite. I do picture her with Daisy, Skippy and Brady. She was a good girl.

Oh Laurie, I'm so so sorry for your loss. So dear to our hearts are our wonderful animals and Lucy was a precious little fur child. Her loving loyalty and fun spirit will stay sweetly in your hearts forever. I know the pain is terrible right now...we lost our beautiful Carrie last June and still miss her. I'm keeping you in my prayers, Laurie.
Blessings, love, and BIG HUGS,
Coralie
