Today was the hardest day I've ever faced- we made the decision to help take our sweet old boy to heaven. He was with us for almost 15 years. He is forever part of our family and completely woven into our memories. He went peacefully and sweetly- at home by the waterfall to beautiful music. I buried him in the woods behind the pond and left a marker, a mosaic stepping stone made
at camp this summer.
There is a rose and also a heart shaped rock I found at Humarock beach- a place we loved to go together.
I will miss him terribly- I have a large hole in my heart, but time will heal.
I went to work today and started this colored pencil portrait of him, I will finish this tomorrow. Thank you for all the kind emails and phone calls,flowers and hugs. This blog has connected me with so many wonderful people, your comments and messages have been wonderful. It started out as a way to challenge myself to paint everyday, and has transformed into so much more.
