I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who wrote to be about my sweetheart Meister. I know I have written that many times but I can't explain how much it means to me. I hope that I will be able to try to ease the pain of others in return. I am still having a hard time dealing with the loss of my little Meister. Last night was the first time we participated in the Candle Lighting. My son, his wife and our new granddaughter Eve (5 months) light a candle and they told Eve all about Meister and how much he loved me and I loved him. My daughter also lit a candle for him. They have a great love for pets and I am very lucky to have their support. Thank you again for listening. Mary Meisters Mom

Mary, Meister is simply
beautiful. What a gorgeous shade of apricot. Oh, how it breaks our hearts to lose these little ones. Lighting candles regularly for my little Betsy has really helped me to feel closer to her. I am so happy you have a supportive family to help you as you grieve. Many hugs, Melissa

I'm so glad you were able to share the candle lighting with your family. It is so comforting to have their love and support. Meister is such a cutie. I know he will always hold a special place in your heart. Hugs Kate (Gus' mom)

Mary, what a sweetie pie Meister was, I just loved his picture. I am glad that the candle ceremony gave you and your family some comfort. The day after my Peanut passed my mother in law gave me a candle and told me to light it for P whenever I felt sad or wanted to be close to her so from that day on I had it lit all the time when we were home and whenever I looked at the flame burning or smelled it I would think of Peanut. When the wax was all burned out I replaced with another large candle and still to this day I always keep a candle burning in my kitchen when we are home. You might want to have a special place such as your kitchen or family room and keep a candle burning when you are there for sweet Meister. I am so sorry for your loss I can see how much that little guy was loved and cherished by his mommy.
I wish you peace and comfort. Karen

Mary: thank you for your kind words, they mean so much. I am so sorry for your loss of Meister ... such a sweety! They will be with us always in spirit. Please know that the time that you take to let us know how much you care and loved, helps us all heal in our losses and yours too.

That is so sweet, Mary...that your family participated like that with you. I know it meant a lot to me when others expressed how much my little Biff was loved and remembered. Meister is so pretty...love his color. While growing up, I was blessed to have 2 poodles. They are SO smart, and just all around great dogs. And my Biff was half poodle. He was just so intelligent, almost like a human. He's been gone almost a year and a half now, and I still miss him so much. I don't think I'll ever get over losing him. So I know a lot of what you (and everyone else here) are feeling. Renee (biffsmom)
