Cedar - forever loved

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Where do I begin....

Its been a week already and I still do not know how to put into words how much I love you and how much I miss you.
You were such a scared boy, so frightened of everything and everyone other than your family yet you had such a wonderful personality to show to any that were privileged enough to witness it. I myself feel extremely privileged that I picked you from the shelter that day 5 years ago. I did not know at the time how scared you were but I did everything in my power to ensure that you were happy. I hope you were happy. I believe you were sent to me to teach me about understanding, about respect, about tolerance. You taught me so much.

I will miss so much about you.... I will miss the way you slept curled up beside me whenever daddy wasn’t home or you snuck into the bedroom without him knowing, I will miss your sweet almost silent meow, I will miss your snoring, I will miss watching you as you destroyed any box that I left for you, I will miss that sweet handsome face of yours, I will miss the cuddles, I will miss telling you to get off the bench or to get out of Jasmine & Ashley’s bed, i will miss watching you sit at the window looking at the birds outside, I will miss the love but I will miss you the most, just you... that sweet handsome timid scared boy that stole my heart all those years ago.

You left us so quickly. I don’t think I have yet to process it. One day you were fine, running around as usual and then in a week you were gone. I promise you I did everything in my power during that week to help you, to find out what was wrong with you and save you. But I couldn’t, I couldn’t do anything. No money could save you. I am so sorry I could not save you. I tried desperately too. And when it was clear I couldn’t, I stayed with you until you no longer felt any pain. It almost destroyed me yet I had to end your pain and I wanted you to look into my eyes as you went to sleep.

I hope you are happy & pain free now. I hope you are no longer scared. I hope you know how much I loved you and how much your brother, Tipsy misses you.

Jasmine left an invitation to her party in the tree. She hopes that when you’re ready you can come down and get it and take it back to the bridge and have a party there with your new friends.

I hope you’re happy with your final resting place. I hope you hear me every morning and every evening when I talk to you. I will plant a beautiful tree there for you.
I just miss you so much my darling boy. You stole a piece of my heart the day I met you and you will forever hold that piece of my heart. My heart is just breaking and I will never forget you.

Rest In Peace Cedar. We will love you forever and a day

This is just so unfair

I've told God to send a supply of boxes special delivery to you Cedar, because no one i know can carve shapes in them like you can

Have fun at the bridge baby boy, but keep watching down on your Mum and Dad, Jasmine and Ashley, and not forgetting your brother Tipsy who must be missing you so much

That was a beautiful tribute to your boy, Dan. Like Susan, I can picture him chewing on boxes to his heart's content across the Bridge, and watching over his family.

Dan, I have wept with you many times over this week, but never as much as reading that tribute. I have no doubt that he knew your love and knows you did everything for him that could be done, including that last selfless thing -- letting him go when there was nothing more to do. to all of you as you navigate these sad waters.

RIP Sweet Cedar

I really can't put it better than Nat did - beautiful written words from a heartbroken soul.

I'm just so, so, so, so, so, so sorry. It's hardest when we don't have time to prepare.

I hope you're happily chewing boxes to your heart's content, Cedar.

Always in your heart...
