To my beautiful Mia, My heart is broken and I miss you so much.The house is so quiet now and wait for you to come into my office. You were my companion and best friend for over 17 years. You were there when I needed comforting and there to make me laugh. I am grateful to have spent these last 2 years during COVID with you at home and enjoying your company. You were there to join in my virtual meetings, to make sure I took breaks for lunch and let me know to end my work day to spend time with you. I miss our snuggling on the couch and on my bed and watching you chase the squirrels and birds in the backyard.

All I have now are photographs and wonderful memories of you. I will never forget you. You will always be mommy’s pretty girl.
