I'm so sorry for your loss. It is very hard. While you will never forget, you will start to put the pain aside and remember the good times. It takes time to cope and get in a new routine. They are in our lives for so long and it's hard to believe when they are no longer here. Hugs.
I went out to the barn to feed our 4 horses tonight. My gelding walked in first, and this guy has NEVER greeted anyone in the 2 years I've owned him, you rarely even hear him make a sound. He greeted me the exact same way Braveheart use to. It nearly broke my heart, but it made me feel like Braveheart is still here, waiting for his pile of hay.
