When D passed away, we had to hire a man to come bury him, and within the next day or two, we had recieved a symathy card from him; it had a beautiful picture of a pinto horse on the front, and said "Not gone, just patiently waiting at the end of the trail," It of course made me sob, but it was a comforting thought. It was also so thoughtful of the man, I didn't even know him, and he didn't have to take the time to do that.
I really appreciate everyone sharing their stories; it helps to have the understanding of losing a horse, but I think what helps me the most is the stories of finally getting to the point that remembering them doesn't hurt and brings smiles.
Thank you, to all of you. I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
