“My sweet boy Gunner. You were my first, and boy, were you something special. From walks to playtime to lazy time, you did it all with personality. You showered everyone you were around with love and brought nothing but joy.

I can only hope I provided the same for you. You were so strong through your cancer diagnosis until the very end. I was so proud of the strong boy you were during it all.

Life will never be the same without you. Five years together was not enough time. I’ll cherish it forever. Until we meet again, always in my thoughts, forever in my heart, my boy, my love, my Gunner.”
