Gone But Not Ever Forgotten!

DSC_0487DSC_0324  Sometimes you see something and it takes you back to another time.You would have protected this child with your life. Now you have sent another to stand guard. It has taken this whole time for her to finally accept that you are in heaven. She finally made up to Daryl. She did suggest we change his name to TY too. There was never any confusion that Daryl was Ty to her. People were afraid of that, but she knew, as small as she is. We can smile more when we talk about you. Like when you ate 3 pieces to the jigsaw puzzle we were working on. When we got frustrated and could not locate a piece, we would say it was a piece that Ty ate. I put up my outside Christmas stuff today, as it was nice out. Felt you should have been there watching. Maybe you were. Sorry I did not post on your 7 month Angelversary. It has been a bit tough for me to post lately and I am not sure why. Maybe it is that 1 year amp. thing we have looming near. I miss you boy, so very much! Love from, Mommy   For those who are confused, 1st picture is TY  2nd one is Daryl

  1. Lori,
    These pics are precious, and no, Ty will never be forgotten, and I can surely relate to the one year amp thing…..I am so happy Ty sent this sweet, loving pup your way. Daryl is so loved already….You will get through this tough period, it is all just a continual part of the long healing process…..for myself, I do know what you are feeling.

  2. Lori,
    It is tough grief is a long process. No one says you have to write I write because it makes me feel closer to Sassy and I love to remember her. I love the pictures of Daryl & Ty. I totally understand to her that is Ty. My niece & nephew probably don’t remember Sassy. I know Gabe doesn’t. Not sure about Grace she was only 2.

    Those 1 year versaries are tough ones.

  3. Those pictures speak volumes……really tug at your heart strings. Its such a beautiful memory to have of Ty Guy.

    Daryl seems to mirror Ty in several different photos…..pretty sure “someone” is keeping a guiding paw on Daryl at all times! Better not be doing any puzzles in front of Daryl! Ty most certainly shown him the art of stealing pieces!!

    Yeah, this grief crap looms heavy, especially this time of year. The holidays can be brutal. We can only FORCE ourselves to remember the thousands of happy moments because that is what Ty, and all the others, would want for us. And yeah, he’s watching!

    In another plst, you mentioned that Daryl has become your husband’s heart dog. If I recall, didn’t Ty start out that way too??? Yep, your heart is quickly being made up of all dog!

    TY WILL NEVER, EVER BE FORGOTTEN!!! We all became instant members of Ty’s AND Lpri’s Fan Club with his first post. And that will not change!!!

    We all share your heartache and wish we could push it away. Unfortunately, the only way around it is through it. And it seems that “going through it” can be one tiny step forward and two huge steps back! Somehow, it does seem to help knowing that people here really understand…really get it. We have all been brought together to help each other on this nojrney through ojr beloved dogs snd cats…quite the little matchmakers!

    Thank you for sharing these lovely photos today. Yeah, bittersweet, but mostly sweet!!

    Take care my dear friend…you are important to us.

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

  4. Lori those photos are so very sweet, thank you for coming here to share them. I realize it isn’t easy, and don’t ever want you to feel guilty about not posting. You are always a part of this community no matter what, and we will always treasure Ty and Daryl too, for all of the beauty they have brought to this community.

    I hope things are going well with Daryl. He is so lucky to have such a great pack.

  5. It’s amazing how perceptive children can be. Your little girl knows that Ty sent Daryl to your family…that’s probably why she wants to call him Ty too. The resemblances of several of the pictures between Daryl and Ty is remarkable. There should be no doubt in your heart that Daryl was meant to find his way to you and your family.

    And we all know how tough it is when our Angel’s birthdays, Ampuvesaries, and Angelversaries come around. Never feel bad because you didn’t post something here to remember it…you remember and hold it in your heart…that’s all that really matters.

    Know that I’m sending you a hug today for missing your sweet Ty and for the worry you’re going through with Daryl right now.

  6. Oh Lori, I see what you meant the other day about Harmony reminding you of Ty. I can see it too and it tugs at my heart with you. I can’t say too much more without blubbering here at work, but wrap your arms around yourself and squeeze. I’m sending you a hug. (And Mel sends a sloppy kiss!)


  7. Ahhhh… those are cute photos ….

    Grief is a mysterious thing … you never know when it will hit or what it will bring. My heart still aches for Shelby daily and the guilt that I have w/loving Jasper as strongly as I do. It’s a cycle.

    We will never forget sweet Ty. He’s loved by many for ever and ever!
