Alafair

We had to say goodbye to our sweet Alafair this afternoon. She was in too much pain to keep trying and she really let us know it was time.

Thanks to all for their thoughts and prayers. This is part of life that sucks.

We will miss her so much. She was the sweetest dog I think I have ever met. She loved people and as one of my friends noted, brought joy wherever she went. Being around her made you smile.

We will miss you, Alafair. We love you.

Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding: Deal graciously with B and L in their grief. Surround them with your love, that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thank you all for your kind words, encouragement and prayers during this painful few days. They were (still are) a comfort to us.

We miss Alafair terribly, yet we know that with time the pain will subside, but her memories will linger with a sweet, sweet fragrance.

She truly was a friend and special companion to us.

Streak, Mrs. Streak,

I am so sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through. It isn't easy.

Streak, I hope you don't mind my praying for your family either my friend.

Streak and SOF -
My deepest sympathies to both of you. Having just lost one of our precious pets last month, I can relate to your pain and grief. Please know that I am thinking of you.
Bright Blessings to you both.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate all the thoughts. I also appreciate the prayers. I don't understand it very well, but I do appreciate it.

Today is tough. I see her everywhere and feel a little overwhelmed.
