Always With Me

Today marks the two month anniversary of when sweet Roscoe went to the bridge. The human and I weren't going to mention it, but then it didn't feel right to let the day pass without saying a word. This is the longest any of us have been away from Roscoe. Though it has only been two months, it feels like years to us.

I am doing better these days. My family and friends help to keep me busy. I don't look for Roscoe as often as I used to. However I do find myself calling out to him in the night from time to time.

We can see his little grave from our bedroom window. Each night the human opens the window and talks to him before going to bed. Normally we can not see the moon from our window, but a few days a month it hangs just above the horizon; a half moon smiling down into our bedroom window from the sky. It is the same half moon we saw the night Roscoe fell terribly ill. It comforts us all now when we see each it month. It is a constant reminder of Roscoe and, funny as it may seem, when we see that half moon it makes us feel as though Roscoe is smiling down upon us.

We hope to keep Roscoe alive by remembering him from time to time on our blog. He visits us every once in a while, if only in our dreams. He visited our human several times this weekend when he snuck into her dreams. It made her happy and sad at the same time.

We will see him one day. It is the time in between that will be difficult...

On a lighter note, I had a fun and interesting weekend with Miss Lacie. Do tune in tomorrow for all of the details! But keep your minds out of the gutter friends, I am a gentle man after all!

Oh Opus, I know Roscoe will always, always be with you. He lives on in your heart, and in the beautiful memories you have of him.

Oh has it been 2 months? Somehow I always feel that Rosceo is still with us. This is one of my favourite pic of him. So cheeky!!

Tears are now streaming down the mom of the house's cheeks. We all here miss little Roscoe so much. This first year will be hard for all of you as it is so easy to look back and remember the days that he was with you. As time goes by you won't do that as much but you will still remember him. It will still hurt but maybe not quite as much. We are so lucky to have had Roscoe in our lives. He was little Mr. Sunshine.
Rest in peace sweet funny face, you are loved and missed.

Has it really been that long? It's hard to believe two months have passed already. His memory is very much alive and he is not forgotten.

You did what? Did you really take Lacie to a poker party and win most of the money?

Roscoe would be proud of you!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

We terriers too are thinking of Roscoe this weekend...we know you will see him again...(um..Scruffy wanted to know if Roscoe could see all of the dog's cards at the poker pawty....heh heh heh!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving nice and kind words. Nice and kind just like your mom's face.
Have I told you I loved so much the wedding picture in that you three had a perfect pose.
I do not forget Roscoe, time does fly fast, it's already two months since he crossed the bridge.
Have fun at the party and your date with Lacie girl. You sure have good taste.

It is always so difficult to loose a loved one. We still know that our Iggy cat comes to visit us sometimes.

Opus, you made the maid cry again! We know so well how you and your humans feel - it is so nice of Roscoe to visit your human in her dreams a lot - Anastasia only did it twice to the maid so far. But she always was very elusive, hahahahaha!
And the butler has not told me how often Emil has visited him - I have to ask.
It will always hurt, as much as it hurts now. But somehow it also will be more bearable - and I am pretty sure that right now Roscoe is actually wearing a pink wig and Anastasia is wearing a multi-colored flower bath cap........

Opus, ((((((HUGS))))))) to you all. Roscoe will always be in your hearts until you meet again.

I love the idea of the moon smiling for Roscoe. I'm glad you will always remember him on your blog - we shall all love reading your memories. None of us want him forgotten.

Love and kissies...
