Marlen: Nothing can ever prepare us for the unexpected loss and sadness after losing a best friend, a 'life witness'. Bailey filled your heart with strength and resilience before journeying to Rainbow Bridge where all the loves of our lives go, to wait patiently for their humans. Grief is such a personal experience,yet there is so much comfort in knowing that others walk this path too. It is not as lonely, it is never easy, especially since you have experienced a previous and recent loss. "Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives." John Salswort. Let this be so. You are not alone in your time of need. I've left a teeny tiny pull rope to keep your connection as love does not die. Ever. Never let go!
