RIP Jem


Luis and I are utterly devastated and heartbroken at the loss of Jem.  He was our sweet, goofy, lovable boy and there is a huge void in our lives now. 

I will probably continue to post cards as making them is the only thing right now that is helping to keep the grief at bay.  But please forgive me if I don't have much to say for a while.

I am so sorry, Jen. I'm tearing up with you. :( I know he was like your child, and the grief doesn't go away easily. You might remember we lost our dog, Gracie a year ago, and I think I've cried about 300 days over it...I don't know that non-pet people realize how attached you get to them and how devastating it is to lose them. Hugs to you and Luis...I'm sending good thoughts your way.

Meg said...

Oh, Jen, I am so sorry to hear about your handsome Jem. Addison sends some furry long-distance hugs your way (and I send some not-so-furry ones). I'll be thinking of you.

I'm so sorry, Jen, so, so sorry. I've been there three times and know the pain and emptiness it brings. You will have another Jem to fill that void when the time is right. God bless. Darnell

Jen, I just saw this post about Jem a moment ago, and I can't tell you how sorry I am. This is heartbreaking to read. What a sweet boy... Humble is sending you his squishy, loving, extra-comforting hugs...my hugs are not nearly as special as his, but I'm sending you some of those, too. <3
