Our Precious Hannah (8 1/2 yo) was taken from us suddenly two days ago; and my heart is broken and aching without her.
Our family isn't whole without her. The house is somber with sobs...when there use to be constant laughter and joy.
Hannah wagged her tail so hard her whole body moved. She was so loving and happy that if you looked at her - that was the only invitation she needed to give you kisses and hugs.
She went everywhere with us. To all our daughter's college soccer games, and our son's baseball games. Every trip she jumped into the car and wouldn't move; six hour car rides, and she never made a sound.
We have even gone to restaurants and eaten outside, because she wanted to go with us. She was just happy to be with us. Hannah was the joy of our lives.
At 6am she was wanting to husband to play with her before he left for work, and he got his usual morning kisses from her while he tied his shoes. At 7am she was unresponsive.
A tumor ruptured and fluid put pressure on her heart, ending in congestive heart failure. We didn't know she had cancer.
