jodi0553 Posted November 11, 2012 Share Posted November 11, 2012 Today marks one year since I said goodbye to my sweet Currey. I never wrote a memoriam topic for him as we were so out of sorts with the death of my father-in-law, the diagnosis of terminal illness for my mother-in-law and the death of Currey all within 8 short days. Last fall we went to hell and back and still are reeling from it all, but taking life in stride, sometimes one day at at time. We've had many great joys over the past year, including the decisions to seize life by the horns and build a new house and bring to another cairn into our lives. In three weeks, Andy, Finn and I will move into our brand new home! So many of you supported us through his short and anguishing battle with lymphoma last year, listening, writing words of encouragement and sharing your own stories of fighting and both winning and losing. Each time we found out something new about his illness, it looked like the odds were stacked in our favor, but we landed on the short end of the odds each time. I'm still glad we fought for him, even though we lost. It was a really hard choice to make both emotionally and financially, but it was worth every tear, every penny to have tried even though we didn't save him. So thank you all for the part you played in Currey's life from the day I joined the forum wondering how to deal with the nippy holy terror Currey was as a four month old puppy till the day we said goodbye to him way too soon. You all made the experience of his life a better one. We'll never forget you, Curran 12/15/05 - 11/11/11 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
