Until We Meet Again, My Angel

Posted January 9, 2012 by Melissa in | 12 Comments

As many of you know this has been a very difficult few weeks/months for our house since my companion of 16 years, my heart, my Milo was diagnosed with cancer.  He was the one constant light in my life for all of my adult years.  No matter what I was going through…all the good and all the bad…I knew that I had only to return home and I would have his love and pureness of spirit to wash over me and heal me.  He would beg for more food everytime I stepped foot in the kitchen, follow me from room to room and hang out with me while I did my housework, greet me at the door when I came home from work, sit on my lap while I read or watched evening programming, curl up on my side while we slept at night, and in his every action show me that he loved me as much as I loved him.

As of early yesterday morning…he is now my precious angel.  I know that a light like his…so bright and pure…so filled with love…can never burn out.  Though Mother Earth may now begin to reclaim his body…his light still shines brightly to watch out over all of us – And all of us who love him so will forever hold a part of that flame in our hearts.

Here are some pictures of him enjoying our Christmas tree this past holiday season.

Mama’s Babydoll…I will love you forever.

  1. It’s so hard, Melissa, to let them go…they bring us such love and devotion and warm our hearts. Hold on to your memories and precious photos like these. You know that Milo had a good life. Hugs to you and prayers for comfort.

  2. A pet is truly a precious companion. I think they are better than people sometimes. They never judge or expect more out of you than what you give. Two years ago my family lost a precious angel too, our cat GoGo (who was 18 years old) died of old age. We now have new “furkids”, but never will we forget her or others that have gone to be angels before her from our family. Thinking of you at this hard time and wishing you well. Your angel will never be far away from you when you need him to be. 🙂
    He looks very cute in your pics! 🙂 But I am a sucker for cute furry paws and cute furry face.

  3. oh he looks like our kitty! I’m so sorry for your loss, it’s always so hard to lose pets but especially so if we’re super close to them. I’ll be thinking of you *hugs*.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I just went through this a few months ago with a beloved pet and I know how hard it can be. My thoughts are with you and Milo, who is now among the angels.

  5. Aw, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I had a hard enough time when we had to give away our beloved cat because of my allergies and I can’t imagine how it would be if he had or my current puppy would pass away. Pets truly come to mean a lot… It’s never easy. *big, big hugs*
