A Broken Heart



2011

Goodbye, my sweet Sophie.
My little Sophie-toes.
After 18 years of loving you,

I miss you already.

My heart is broken.
Shattered with pain.
Bleeding love and want for you.




The only comfort I find is knowing that I will once again cuddle your soft furry little body someday at


2012

I send you off with tears in my heart
and will always carry you with love in my soul...


2013


2014


2014


I love you, sweet girl...
forever and for always.

  1. Laurie, I am so sorry! My heart breaks for you. Sophie is so beautiful. She felt your love everyday and still does :) You gave her a wonderful life and I just know she is still right there with you. Losing a pet is so hard because they are not animals, they are family members!! Sending you lots of love and hugs sweet friend!

  7. Laurie,
    I truly mean it when I say, "I feel your pain."
    Just back from the wedding of the "sweet girl" who gifted me with our beloved Maurice,
    brought back all the joys of ownership and the sorrows of losing her nearly two years ago.
    Pets enrich and enhance our lives.
    Give yourself time to grieve your loss!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  24. I'm so so sorry, Laurie. I know how much your little friends mean to you and how much heartbreak you've already had. We love them like children and there is an irreplaceable void in our hearts when they leave us. Sophie was so very pretty. I wish I could give you a big hug. Please know that I'm saying a prayer that your heart mends a bit each day.

    XO,

  29. so sorry I can feel your pain, my own 'smudge' girl passed away in the doctor's office in September. It is hard. You cry and remember and look at the pictures "one more time". Smudge was 16 and I said I would NEVER do it again. yeah never say NEVER.
    I now have two sweet little kitties from two different litters. One is called Molly as she is tiger striped and has on her head an M in her hair line. Then we have a grey kitten we named MOSEY ...she is adorable too. We have enjoyed them and feel we all will continue to grow old together.

  47. I am crying for you now. There is nothing harder. They are so innocent and give us so much. I, too, believe that when I die, all of the wonderful animals I've loved, both domestic and wild, who have gone on before will be there to welcome me. Please accept my condolences.

  76. I was far away my computer, and could not read you... so so sad for you ! the only pain we have with our little four legged spirits is when they leave us. I'm going to try to translate from French some words that I always take in mind when one of my cats or poodles leave me always too soon :

    "Please don't cry, all these moments of joy we shared together are my Eternity".

    I'm with you and kiss you from all my heart.

    xoxo from PARIS

  77. This is heart wrenching. No words can take away this pain.
    18 yrs is a long time!, she was with you almost half your life? Cats are too precious, they hang around until a healing crisis is over, and they tend to disappear after. They are truly magical creatures, their magic is real and pure love. My heart is with you.

  78. I'm so sorry you lost your little darling! She was a beauty!

  80. I'm so sorry. I know the heartache of losing a furry child. It's never easy. What you wrote was wonderful. I feel sorry for people that don't know what it's like to love a special cat or dog. They are really missing out on one of life's special joys.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I don't know how to thank you all for the abundance of comfort that you left me with your sweet words. They wrapped themselves gently around my soul in a loving embrace and brought me so much peace. God bless you! ♥

  88. I'm so sorry for your loss, Laurie. Those fur babies do tug on our heartstrings, don't they. Sophie was a beautiful kitty. It is so wonderful that you had 18 long years with her. We are just beginning a journey with a new cat, after losing our 5 month old kitten. Hugs to you. May your heart be comforted by the beautiful memories of Sophie.
