Today is the first morning in 9 years I wake up without you. I looked over to the couch that was your king-sized bed you claimed so long ago waiting to see your head pop up to acknowledge that it’s time to go for our morning walk, but my heart sank because this morning it wasn’t to be. I cry to hold you and caress you in my arms my beautiful majestic giant. My heart has a huge hole in it, my existence is incomplete without you by my side. You are my love and always by mommy’s side. Many tell me that I saved your life 3 years ago by reversing your IBS but, the opposite is true, you saved me 9 years ago. You were my reason for getting out of bed when I sometimes didn’t want to. You lived out your name because you brought me sunshine in the darkest of times. I am grateful I had so many more years with you. God put you in my life when I needed you the most. The bond that we share is forever and beyond this earthly world. I tried so hard to heal you but the illness that invaded your body came like a storm, quietly at first then when it showed itself in January was like a vengeance. My sweet gentle Sonnie, mommy’s baby boy you watch over me as you always did but now you are no longer in pain, your running around, playing “come and get me” with the angels. Mommy loves you so much and thanks you for saving her. Until we meet again.
