You were my constant companion. You were always by my side. Your eyes never left me. And I know your heart loved me deeply during every moment of your life since the day you became my Bear. I can never be grateful enough for having you in my life. Everyone said you were so lucky to be in our family. Oh no. We were so lucky to have you. You brought amazing joy to every day. I could never look at you without a smile and a heart filled with love.
I miss your beautiful smile with and without your tennis ball. I miss stroking your head and your amazingly soft fluffy fur. I miss your loving kisses. I miss seeing your face light up and your tail wag high when you heard the word beach. Even when the sun didn't shine, you lit up the beach with your Golden joy. I miss watching you roll in the grass with total delight. I miss you prancing proudly with my shoe in your mouth to greet me when I returned home. I miss hearing that deep bark asking me to “please Mom! Throw my ball!”. I miss throwing the ball to you and seeing your happy face, ball in mouth as you retrieved. I miss you snuggling beside me as close as your body could be to mine. I miss so much holding you and hugging you tight. I miss your paw on my shoulder as we rested together. I miss your paw asking me for pets. I miss your roll over for belly rubs.
You would always be there to comfort me when I was sad. Now no one is here to gently lick my tears.
We were so incredibly connected. I felt we knew each other’s thoughts, without every saying a word.
I love you Bear with all my heart. I could not love you any more or any deeper. And I will never ever stop loving you, my wonderful, beautiful Bear.
