I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everybody who posted something here in support of our family. It means a lot to my wife and I to be able to read your posts and to know that we are not alone in our pain. We are slowly getting more used to the emptiness, and today was a lot easier than yesterday. I still walk out to his grave marker behind our house when I get home and tell him to "come on boy, come inside." Our 2 year old was walking around the house saying that puppy is sad, and was walking around saying love you puppy, love you puppy all morning yesterday. Tonight, I sat down with him at the computer and looked at all the happy pictures of us all together and that seemed to help. It's nice to have the support of a community like this. We appreciate all of your love and concern.
