My Baby Girl Gabrielle
Gabby: How fortunate we were to have your precious little presence in our every day lives. I am so sorry that our physical time together has come to pass, you were such a joy and I will miss you terribly. I feel absolutely crushed right now. You surround my heart. I thank you so much for all that you gave us. I will remember you minute to minute and day to day for the rest of my life.
Gabrielle, I came across two of your little footprint impressions in my closet this morning. I love you, I hope you can hear me talking to you...
You're My Best Friend:
Ooh you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It's you you're all I see
You're the best friend that I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine and I want you to know that my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh you're my best friend
I've been wandering round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You've stood by me girl
I'm happy at home
Ooh you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
You're the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I'll never be lonely
You're my only one
- By Queen
Gabby at the office
Miss my little office pal and fond memories:
1. Burrowing in hot laundry
2. Chasing the cat (3 times her size) off the area rug in front of the fireplace.
3. Lying on the deck in the sun, legs splayed out behind her.
4. Taking up the whole middle of our king sized bed.
5. Snuggling into my sweatshirt, doing just about everything together.
Gabrielle, your absence from my life is still so surreal, I get a pit in my stomach and a pang in my heart at the constant little reminders that you are gone. I get in the car to go to work and look for you in the drive so I can scoop you up and take you with me. I open the front door after running errands and expect to see your smiling little face as you dance and twirl at the top of the stairs in anticipation of being together. When I go around and turn off all of the lights before bed, I look behind me believing I will see you following right along. I can fully conjure up how muffin-y and warm the soft little spot behind your ears smelled as I snuffled and kissed you. I can easily hear your teeny tiny snores through the covers while dad and I drink coffee and watch the morning news in bed. Girlfriend, I am trying my best to distract myself from the reality of the painful void you have left in my life - but we shared such a bond and spent so much time together, it's a struggle I can still measure in minutes and hours. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXO
Miss you baby girl. The cat does too, plus she is weirded-out by all of the extra attention she has been getting since you left us. Wish I could turn back time and have you back. Love you.
