Remembering Tara...Two Years at the Bridge

Losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far away.

I always fall back on the Rumi quote: Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.
Personally, I don't know which is harder.
Thinking of you today.

I am unable to fathom anything at the moment. Far too much pain and far too little answers as to why. My heart aches for you - first, as you hold on to your precious memories of Tara, and now, the unspeakable. The pain of the unexpected is truly one that is extremely difficult to reconcile. I know that I try every day... My thoughts are with you - I know I can't magically make it all better, but I am here for you if you need me. xoxoxo

We are glad that Tara "happened for you" because she made it possible for you to open your heart up to Truffles who benefited every day from your love. Ann, let me know that your beloved girl, Truffles, left quite unexpectedly today; something similar happened with our Angel Lewis, he left us suddenly, in less than twenty-four hours.There was no anticipated grief for us, his departure was unexpected, swift , and all consuming. Once I was able to stand again after having been dropped to my knees by his sudden death, I realized that Lewis' life with us had been really wonderful! He was so loved and cherished and indulged! And he knew he was loved.Profoundly. I know you will eventually reach that same understanding ; Truffles was loved, cherished and protected by you and she felt it. Please hold on to the quality of life you gave her and not the duration of her life as you let her go .We know Tara will be there to meet Truffles as will our Angels Lewis , Tulip and Leo.

We are sending you our heartfelt condolences and hugs.You are not alone . You are surrounded by love, ours included.
