My darling Pogie,
It has now been 13 years since you left for Rainbow Bridge, and life is moving ahead so quickly and furiously. When you were here with me, Mom felt so blessed that you were in my life. Baby Bosgo has been a wonderful friend to me as well, and came into our lives after you left. I know deep in my heart that you sent him to us. He has been a good boy as you were. Mom now also has Grandma's dog Simmi, but we are all getting and feeling so much older lately. Dad and I finally got married on Bosgo's birthday, so this time of year is filled with good memories and hard ones to deal with. I hope that you are okay, as I think of you often and with a lot less pain in my heart. You were my buddy and helped mommy through all kinds of hard times. I loved you with all my heat and soul, as you knew I did. We were soulmates for sure! I will come to visit you tomorrow up the lake, and I will bring you your flowers, your Christmas card, and your heart balloons. I will know when you get them, as they will slowly disappear into the light blue sky overhead. I am looking forward to coming to see you, so be ready my boy. Mom loves you with all her heart and soul, and my feelings for you will never lessen. Love, Mom

This is a beautiful sentiment, but please, please reconsider releasing balloons into the sky. They are very harmful to the environment and wildlife for obvious reasons.

Dearest Pogo's mom,
I understand what you are feeling. I understand your need to do what makes your heart feel peace. Release your balloons, Take your card and flowers. Never mind what JerseyLola had to say about the balloons. This was the same comment made to me on Termy's first Bridge day and it hurt, I was grieving so deeply and for someone not to understand that doing something to make you feel better inside and find inner peace is sad. When we grieve and hurt deep inside we need to have peace and for you to honor Pogo for the last 13 years proves the depth of your love. Pogo was your heart dog and the love you shared still shines strong. You are remembering the journey you shared and keep honoring Pogo the way that feels right for you. Don't let negativity by some spoil your memories. Remember Pogo and the love you shared. Love and doggie hugs Termy's mom
