Hello, Milo, this is one of the hardest pages I will ever have to do. I can recall this time of year last year to be bittersweet. I promise you young man, this will be a day of celebration, not of sorrow.
I love you from the bottom of my heart my friend and I truly always will. A part of me was ripped in two the day we said goodbye last year. You were such a proud boy, my hero. Until this day I cannot wear that t-shirt I wore when I was in that room. I look upon that with sadness. I feel a part of me passed along with you. When I walked out a big part of my life had been taken away.
But, this is not a day to be sad Mr. Man, I promise, but a day I will reflect on those beautuful memories we shared for 10 1/2 years. I don't even feel like the same person that I was after losing you, but I grew in different ways. You taught me the meaning of patience and time and to appreciate things. And I thank you so much or bringing me Toni, she carries so much of you within her. Thank you for being one of the kindest souls to ever come into my life.
But, no one will ever replace you my boy, ever. I know you are with Grandma & Sam, I know you are happy, so I want you to be happy also and you need to move forward.
We shared a great "bond" that I am so honored to have shared with you. I miss your big brown eyes and that rubbery nose. I will always remember holding you always. Time will never change that. You were truly one of my best friends on earth. I am so proud of you, and always will be. I will think of you with such a big smile.
Move forward young man, into the sunlight & enjoy your new place. You will always remain in my heart, amd you will always be so, so handsome (whistle, whistle) and I will love you always until the day we meet again!
You are one of the greatest gifts the Lord has ever given me. I will never forget the sparkle in your eye and will always rememeber you as youthful and happy, and I know that is how you are now .
Thank you for always greeting me with a kiss no matter the time of day. Thank you for following me where ever I went. Thank you for looking forward to lying on the couch to watch a movie and cuddling. Thank you for always eating my pizza crust being I hated the crust. Thank you for being one of the most well behaved pooches at the vet, they all loved you. Thank you for jumping on my bed, even when I knew you couldn't, just to place your head on my chest. Thank you for wearing the Giants Jersey the year they won. Thank you for making me laugh everytime you rolled on your back on the carpet and kicked your legs in the air. Thank you for howling to the opening of "Young & Restless" theme for Grandpa after Grandma passed. Thank you for being my protector, friend and fondest memory I will ever recall.
May God always bless you. I will love you forever, and thank you from the depth of my heart for these special times Mr. Beans, they are so priceless.
Rest now my forever friend until we meet again.
I will love you always and forever Gordon.
Enjoy the heavens and run amongst the sunshine.
You are the best!
