Goodbye Sweet Sam

We lost our sweet Sam today.  I don't have the words right now to write more.  He was our boy, and we loved him.

  9. We don't have the words either -

    But do know the feelings -

    Auntie Di knows how hard to it is to let a Golden Smooch go - her Sierra will always be her heart dog -

    I'm sure Angel Sierra and Angel Lexie and Angel Merdie are showing off the new stud -

  12. Oh! I just turned on the computer this morning here in Australia and just saw this!!! :-( Oh Christine! I knew it was coming but still - it is just too soon. I wish there were other words than the usual ones of saying how sorry I am for your loss - Sam was such a special boy and touched so many hearts. I know his last days were wonderful ones, filled with love, and that he is at peace now - but he will never be forgotten by his many friends around the world. I can't imagine how you must be feeling right now and I wish I knew what else to say - other than to say that we're thinking of you from the other side of the world and sending hugs.

    Love,
    Hsin-Yi (& Slobbers from Honey)

  27. No words will help...but please know I am thinking of you during this extremely painful time. My heart aches for you, I know how empty your heart feels. :(

  28. Christine, there are indeed no words. The love of such a special boy as Sam does not come along often enough in life. The wonderful thing is that the love always remains even if Sam cannot. Your love for him was so obvious and so was his love for you. Together, you inspired many and will continue to do so. Sam will live on in that.

    Please know that you and Aaron and Monty, Harlow and Baron are all in our thoughts and prayers. I am but a phone call away (at ANY time) if you need a shoulder.
