My little sweetheart...



My heart's broken...
His seventeenth birthday was coming up;
but his frail little body was worn out,
and my Jesse died this afternoon.
I think I have cried all I can cry,
then I cry some more.
He was my little sweetheart.

  1. Oh Yvonne. I cannot even begin to tell you how sorry I am. These babies come into our lives and share their entire selves with us, unconditionally giving us love. And we give our hearts over to them because we must, we love them so. I'm sorry for your loss. Jesse will be missed.

  4. Yvonne, I too am sorry! So difficult to let go, I know. I have a pet cemetary in my backyard and I plant flowers over them. I once read that if you keep the ground slightly moist
    in a short six weeks they will be gone! It is an interesting process. They become the flowers and become the snail which eat the flowers and become the birds that eat the snails! I have a place picked out for me but my wife thinks I won't make it past the snails!

  6. Yvonne I'm so sorry. I have had my share of pets and my share of losses. Some are a little more difficult than others, I know I'll be very sorry when my kitty of over 16 yrs. will pass. I hope Andee, Zoe and Dustin are helping you mend.
    xoxo

  7. I'm so sorry.
    It's hard to lose family.
    Pets are just like furry members of the family.

  11. I am sorry that Jesse had to leave you. I had a cat once that lived for 19 years and it broke my heart when she died. I still have her in my heart even though she has been gone for over 23 years. When we choose to love we always risk the pain of loosing that which we love. But, how bleak our life would be if we did not choose to love. kt

  12. OH Yvonne.... I am so sorry for you my friend. There is nothing more wonderful than loving and being loved by a furbaby. I am not the most religious of people, but I do believe that the powers that be gave us an amazing gift when they blessed us with our wonderful furbabies. My heart breaks for you. I wish I could give you an enormous hug.
