Katie passed away peacefully July 19th , 2017 with the help of Dr. Nick. The room that was prepared for her was very serene, she had the music she loved which we brought from home for her to listen to as well as her favorite blanket, monkey socks, bunny toy, a St. Francis of Assisi (patron Saint of Animals) prayer card, and a little rosary. We were able to take as much time as we needed to be with her, to talk to her and to let her know what a brave girl she was and how it was now okay to let go as we knew she was trying to stay for us. We let her know how much we loved her and would miss her and also shared with her all the special memories she has given us over all the years. As we were holding Katie and she took her final breath we felt her last heartbeat and at that moment our hearts broke. We feel so much devastation as her loss is so very painful and we know we will never truly recover from losing her. She was such a gentle kind beautiful soul and for almost 17 years completed our little family.
Katie was cremated with much care and compassion in a private ceremony by Animal Cremation Services with her favorite blanket, monkey socks, bunny toy, St. Francis prayer card, and rosary. With receiving her ashes, she has now made her final journey back to us.
We remember hearing this line a long time ago from an old movie and hope it will bring us some comfort in time…
“I try not to let it, but sometimes it all plays back in my mind, and when it does, I remember how lucky I am to have found someone and something that saying goodbye to is so damned awful.”
With much sadness,
Robin (Daddy) and Debbie (Mommy)
