What a blessing to have the love for and of a creature as sweet and loyal as my little Riley. I can honestly say that in over fourteen years, we were never left to wonder how much we were loved by the other. What lessons he taught me about living, loving and dying. I miss him every moment... Every moment.

I love you, Riley. You will always be "the sweetest little puppy in the whole wide world!"

"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone whom we love, and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute; we must simply hold out and see it through. That sounds very hard at first, but at the same time it is a great consolation, for the gap, as long as it remains unfilled, preserves the bond between us. It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; God doesn't fill it, but on the contrary, God keeps it empty and so helps us to keep alive our former communion with each other, even at the cost of pain."
