Firstly I want to give a heartfelt thank you to each and everyone that commented and wished me well, with regards to my situation with Otis. I am humbled by the words said to me. Knowing that little Otis touched so many lives of so many people whom he never met, but by means of me discussing him (without his permission) here on my WP blog posts.
The amount of people that said they shed tears right along with me is beyond belief.
I would like to leave with you a memory of the face that I will see forever. this was the face I got to see just before we went to bed on Wednesday night.
I also received a wonderful placard to place by Otis’s grave, from someone who Otis managed to touch their life. This placard will accompany the grave stone that I will chisel Otis’s name in by hand. Thank You so very much for this placard. This will be hung on the fence at the head of the grave.
So this is really going to take me some time to past. So many things in my daily routine involved Otis and now those are all gone. Starting from how I was awoke each and every morning and going through the day until the lights were turned out.
I want to say to everyone that right now is the time to take a look at how you do things in your daily life. The things that you say or don’t say to those who mean so much to you. The loss I have had to accept came at me at rapid speed, with little time to prepare.
In light of that, this can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Always ensure that those that matter to you know and hear directly from you how much you love them. No matter how nasty a disagreement might be at any given time, always end it and make sure that they know and hear from you that you love them.
If my last moments with Otis had been on bad terms that would have killed me. I am fortunate that I was able to show and tell Otis how much he was loved and how much he meant to me.
Yah he was a dog. When you have no one else in your life that still counts. As I said last night, I spent more time with Otis than most people spend with their significant other or their own children.
Change the world, start now showing how much you love and care for those around you.
Long weekend in Canada, the official start to Summer.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Brightest Blessings and again a heartfelt thank you from the late Otis and me.
