Hope Is Gone


Though she was only with us for a short time, she touched our lives in a way that will live forever. We loved her very much. I hope she felt that.

I'm so sorry to read this. I'm positive that Hope felt the love you all showered on her during her last days. You made her comfortable, and took such good care of her. I know you are all hurting, and I will be praying for you. It's a difficult thing to lose a loved pet, no matter how long they are with you. So sorry..

Love, Kathryn

I was "hope"ing to not have to read that she didn't make it. I was pulling for her - with all my might! I know she passed with a very happy heart - she was loved! I will pray for all of your hearts. May they heal fast!

she knew how much she was loved. Animals are so sensitive to us and seem to have knowledge that is stronger than our own. She is at peace and she had good final days that she could be in peace. Thanks for taking such good care of hope. You will be rewarded.

I am so sorry to hear about Hope. You guys sure gave her a lifetime of love in the little time you had her. We unexpectedly lost our dog this week. Pets sure have a way of latching onto your heartstrings, don't they?

Prayers your way...

So sorry to hear that Hope lost the battle with health. We were all praying she would make it. I know how difficult it is to loose a pet. Even though she was with you for a short time, we could all tell you became very attached to her and, I think, we all did a little as well. God bless you.
