Stunned and Hearbroken..

maine-matters has been terribly quiet as of late..

My life has been struck with  tragedy...

Just 3 weeks ago we had to put down our wonderful, once in a lifetime companion Big Ray.

He was almost 12 years old and had stomach cancer.  I know "it" was the right thing to do for him but that is of little condolence for the heart break that we feel.

Even now as I write this short post, I weep for him..

As time moves on and I gather myself I will be writing an appropriate eulogy for our beautiful, loving yellow boy..

How can it be?

  2. So sorry for the lose of Ray, I know you will never replace Ray, but there is a small puppy out there somewhere that may just ease your pain. Thanks for sharing

  4. I am so sorry! We had to put our pup (4.5 yr old) down the day after Thanksgiving. She had a nasal tumor. We cried for months after. Even now, we tear up when we think of her. You lost a special member of your family. Hugs to you my friend.
