You have lived at the bridge for a whole year, I miss you!

DSC_0058DSC_0059DSC_0053DSC_0057These are the last 4 pictures I think I took of Ty. The one with my daughter may have not been, as it was taken the weekend before. I see it especially in that picture. You were seeing the Bridge. The light had gone out in your eyes and I was too close to see that. I am so sorry! Felt like I was swimming uphill in concrete today. The emotion took a bit of a toll. I have kept from crying for some reason today. Maybe it is because of the cry fest I had on the 10th.Went through his box, buried my face in his tshirts, his collar and his bag of hair. I got a faint smell of him and was completely undone. Was a much worse day for me than today. The 3 pictures of me with Ty were taken just hours before he left. That is pretty much how we were when he left. I had his head in my lap and I bent over and buried my face next to his and talked to him. Said how much I loved him, over and over again. I could not watch. The words He is gone stuck with me for many months. Enough about his leaving. TY stands for Thank You in most written communication these days. I think of him every time I see those letters.  TY, Ty for being you, TY for being mine, TY for being silly and goofy, TY for loving me as you did, TY for protecting me, TY for all of the memories we made. TY for all the camping trips, TY for being so brave, you stuck with those treatments because you knew I wanted you to, TY for my friends here, without you, I would not have met them, TY,TY,TY for everything you gave me in your 8 years. TY forThe warm exuberant welcomes, TY for the kisses and even the body slams. You are very missed here, precious boy! Never forgotten, always loved. MY TY GUY! I LOVE YOU! Mommy

  1. such sweet memories that are forever etched in your heart!! He may have left your side.. but he will never leave your heart!

  2. I can’t believe it has been a year. April was another rough month. 🙁 Ty will always be right next to you. He is always in your heart. It is hard for us to see when it is time. I still think about that day Sassy left for the bridge.

  3. Oh Lori…. sending you much love and hugs … I know what you mean about not crying a ton on the actual day. I cried buckets in the weeks leading up to it and then it was just a day. A sad day but a day that I was able to process and move forward. Closure? Peace? I don;t know…

    I have photos of Shelby from her last hours … I can only look NOW and see how “done” she really was … not in the moment. It is always harder to see. But in your photos … all I see is absolute LOVE from your Ty guy for you…. so much love. He loved being near you.

    And he’s still with you … every day! Hugs and love!

  4. I’ll try and stop crying long enough to type.

    When I saw these pictures, and had not read your ppst yet and di not know when they were taken, I stared at each one for quite awhile.

    Lori, I SAW peace in his eyes. I saw complete peace and very much at ease. I SAW the love between you two.

    And then I read your lovely tribute and realized when they were taken. You stayed present with him every single second and it shows. Your strength at this time was Herculean. But because you loved Ty so much you were able to be together in his circle of peace.

    As Alison said in her other post. WE ARE STILL HERE!! WE ARE STILL STANDING STRONG on behalf of Ty, Happy Hannah, Franklin, Sassy, Shelby, Jake, Leland, Polly, Pug Maggie, Rosie, Tahoe, Jackson, Libby, Snoop, Roxie, Chuck, TJ, Shilo,Brendol, Marshall, Murphy, Gus, Jwrry….and I’m stopping naming names right now because we know who we are! We are a familynunited and together we will continue to carry on the legacy of our beautiful pups!

    TY…..yes, THANK YOU TY for allowing us the privilege of being on this journey with you! You overcame challenge after challenge a d showed us what was possible!

    NEVER, EVER FORGOTTEN!! ALWAYS LOVED!! DARN RIGHT! Hope you weren’t body slamming the Angels at the Bridge! They’re kinda fragile!

    Ty knew how much you loved him Lpri. And he knew everything you did was for him. A love like that is eternal.

    We all love you Lori! And we are all better for having you in our lives.

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

  5. These anniversaries are so difficult. I am thinking of you today. I also like to think that Ty and Bart (and all the other amazing Tripawd Angels) are running together in Heaven looking down on us with the love in their eyes they always had for us here on Earth.
    Hugs – Darcy & Angel Bart

  6. Lori, you and Ty have a bond that time cannot erase. No matter how many years past, his gifts will always be in your heart and soul. What a lucky boy he was to have you for a mom, and vice versa. You made a great team!

    I know this isn’t a lot of comfort when an anniversary like this hits, but I hope it helps somewhat. My heart goes out to you.
