My Sweet Angel Sophie
I can't believe the day is here that I have to say goodbye to you. How can I possibly say goodbye to my constant companion and best friend of 15 years? What words could possibly convey what my heart is feeling? I will miss you terribly but I know that you will be with Lucy soon and that brings me great comfort. I will try to remember all the wonderful years we spent together and not dwell on the problems that you have had recently.

We have had a really good ride together you and I. I remember the first day we took a nap together and you were just a puppy, you stuck your head out from under the covers and placed it on the pillow next to me. I was and always have been so delighted with everything that you do. You're a gentle soul and you were always welcoming to other dogs, always relinquishing a toy, always curious to get to know other people and animals. We have lived in seven different houses together. We have traveled to Florida, New York, South Carolina, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone together. What spirit you have. You have taught me wonderful life lessons. You loved me unconditionally, and I hope I came close to doing that for you. Please carry that same spirit with you as you move on even though your body has had enough.

I hope you know that I would move mountains for you, I would spend thousands for you, I would do anything I could for you but right now I need to put you out of any further suffering and let you go.

I love you more than any words can say and our hearts will always be connected in this life and the next. Your Mom
