    Thank you, I still am struggling so much to actually believe it. Even if I'm just opening the fridge, I start thinking about it and cry. Maybe because I frequently was opening the fridge to get an apple out for her.

    My mom is ordering me a new barn jacket so I'm going to get something embroidered on the back in memory of her, I wanted to just have it say "In Loving Memory of Indie'.. but I want something more unique. I'll have to try and think of something.

    I wonder if her death would have been easier for me if it didn't happen that way, although it would've been hard no matter what.. I don't think I'll ever forget that night and the panic going through my mind when she fell over as her lead rope was in my hand. When she was flailed around, I was too scared to pet her.. even though I should have. But, whenever she calmed down for a moment, I would rub the side of her face.. as her face was pressed to the wall.

    Probably. When they die from expected reasons, old age, injury, persistent health issues, it is MUCH easier to deal with. You get to deal with it as soon as you realize they aren't getting better/younger. It still hurts but is isn't the soul-destroying shock of losing one unexpectedly or so tragically. That is what will take the longest time to heal. Your soul.

    It is so nice that you have such an understanding and loving mother. I hope you are doing better today.
