Overheard...{promise me}

Kylie pleading with Maya to get better.

"Promise me we will never have another dog because I don't want to go through this again..."

It's been an emotional week...we lost our faithful companion Maya after a difficult battle with kidney failure.  The vet told us kidney disease must have been developing for some time, but she fell acutely ill just last Saturday.  
We are deeply mourning the loss of our sweet girl.  In the weeks to come, I want to try to fully capture what she meant to us (for our family if for no one else), but right now her being gone is just too raw.

Maya M...beloved family member.  
March 2005 - April 2014

Kristi, saying goodbye to a beloved pet "family member" is so very very sad and hard! My prayers are with you and your family during this time of great loss.

Oh, Kristi, I am just so sorry you're having to go through this. Of course we know it's better to have loved and lost than never loved, but for children, just so hard to understand. That picture and quote have me in tears.....thinking of all of you tonight and in the coming weeks.

I'm so very sorry for the loss of your family's beloved Mya.
We just went thru this loss with my kitty, Poppy! Felt like apart of myself died. We miss her so. I'll be praying that Jesus gives you all comfort.

Take care,

Words can't explain the hurt in my heart for all of you. Know that each of you spent loving time with Maya the last four days. Memories made for all of you.
