“Samantha (aka Sammie) chose me when she was two months old. She loved to play, and run, and jump up to the top shelf of the condo. She was full of life and gave her brothers some sass. She slept with me every night.

Later in life, she developed serious health issues — mega-colon, seizures, and early kidney and was on meds three times a day for 3 years. She did very well. She never fought me. Always took every pill with her sweet, patient personality. She developed lymphoma which is what finally took her at age 16 1/2. Her final days she was still eating, exploring the house, and showing that adorable personality, but she kept losing weight.

I miss her so much. I miss her warm little body next to me in bed, or on the sofa as I watched TV. A Gentle Farewell came to the home and Sammie was able to pass peacefully on the deck outside on a picture-perfect sunny Spring day. I miss her so much. RIP my sweet little girl. I will see you one day.”

I’m so sorry about Sammie’s death; however, it sounds like you had a helluva good ride with her those 16.5 years, and that truly matters! Enjoy the good memories!
