memories of yesterday

I have been absent for awhile now. It has been two weeks and two days since my beloved Coop, my life and my rock passed from this earth plane. It was abrupt and a shock to all. I find comfort in the fact that he went quickly and painlessly in his sleep. I have much to say to others as I reflect on the feelings and thoughts that run through my heart and mind. But those things will have to wait. For now I am grieving as I practice facing the future one day, sometimes only one moment or hour at a time. I will return when I'm able to dedicate my thoughts to these pages. In the meantime I simple wanted to let all of you know what has taken place and why I have been absent. I miss my partner and best friend and the children and grandchildren miss their dad and grandpa. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. More importantly, please appreciate those loved ones you hold dear and never, ever take life and love for granted. We always think there is tomorrow but often there is no tomorrow, only the memories of yesterday.

  10. My heart is broken for you. May God help you find peace and strength in this agonizing time. Your pictures are beautiful...very easy to see your love for each other. Blessings Kim!

  11. My thoughts and sympathy are with you.

  12. We all miss him so much...it is just so unreal and we wish there was some way to ease your pain and sweeten your life again. I love you so much...my heart is broken in two for you and the grief you bear. Know that I will be here for you as long as my heart beats. I miss his furry face too. It just dawned on me that I was there when all but 2 of these pictures were taken...I especially recall walking around the pond in early Spring and also the butterfly landing on his head last summer...it stayed there for the longest time. And the fires, our firebuilder Coopie...I think that was the night he told me "You're just mean!" I will miss our bickering and the exquisite bon fires, Coopie style. In shared memories and love, my heart is with you. Sue

  17. Sallie, I, too, am not at the computer much these days, and only now have found your entry. I'm so very sorry for your loss! I have no words to say, and wish I could give you a huge hug. I'm crying and grieving for you...you will be in my prayers throughout the days
