We lost our little boy today. Here is our tribute to our Beloved Chen Chen. My Ode to Chen Chen. How can I describe the pain in my heart after losing my little boy? How can I describe the sound of my wailing cry; a sound I had not heard since I was a boy. I cannot find the words to convey how I feel right now after losing Chen. I call to him, but there is no answer. I touch the places that he lay, close my eyes and see him. I smell his bed and still catch the faint scent of his little body. Our friends tell us, “this too shall pass” and “time heals all wounds”; but right now I don’t want to heal. I need to grieve. To Jo Anne and I, he brought such joy. He was the focal point of our daily life and we loved to do for him. He was every bit our child and completed our marriage as any child would. That child is gone and we miss him so. I miss his little face. I miss his eyes filled with unconditional love and devotion, even while his heart was failing. He stayed alive as long as he could and when he could endure no more, his eyes told us to let him go. I stood there and held his cheeks and tried to reassure him that he was going to a better place where there were no more pills, no more pain, and he was free to run. I held him while he was entering ever lasting peace and our eyes met for one last time as we said good-bye. To Our Boy, Chen Chen – June 6, 1997 to April 1, 2008

What a beautiful tribute to your little boy. I have tears in my eyes as I am typing. I am so sorry. My little boy had heart trouble too, he was on medication 3 times a day, and he hated it. He didnt realise that it was the rotten pills his Mum kept giving him, that were keeping him alive.
I am so sorry. Blessings to you and your wife. God Bless you Chen Chen, Mummy and Daddies little boy. Much love, Di xxx I love you ginger man xxx

Dear Chen Chens Dad,
I am sorry for your loss I know your pain as I lost my dog Rusty on March 24, 2008. Your whole life changes when you lose your pet. I still think about him every day. It takes time to heal, take one day at a time. May God watch over Chen Chen and bring peace to you both.

My deepest sympathy to you and your wife on the loss of your Beloved Chen Chen. He's such a beautiful little boy in the picture you posted. I do so understand the utter grief you feel having to bid your precious boy farewell. My Beloved Boxer Grunt was put to his final sleep the last day in February, and I am missing him even more every day and feeling such pain still. All we have are the memories and the strong love in our hearts that will never die. I know our boys are playing together at the Rainbow Bridge, and we will see them again. Saying a special prayer for Chen Chen and his Mom and Dad, Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever

Chen Chen's dad and mommy,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy. I know how difficult it is to watch them decline. You gave him the hardest gift to give and answered the look in his eyes, by an act of selflessness. I know how awful it is the first days, weeks and months. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, Golda'ss Mom
