Show Name: Mr.
- Passed November 22,
Amos, my sweet handsome
boy, you have given me so much over the last 8 years. I hope that I made
you as happy as you made me.
I don't know if you realized how much you truly did for me. When I was going
through a difficult time, you were my reason for getting out of bed
every day. I always said that you were the key to my sanity, my therapy and
that will always be true. I just think about your goofiness and the way you
lit up when you saw me and even after I had put you away, you waited at the
gate until you saw me drive away. That was my daily reminder that you loved
me as much as I love you.
We have both been through so much, but we always did it together.
I hope you know that I tried as hard as I could to keep you happy
and healthy. Knowing that there was nothing else that I could do broke
my heart. I am so sorry, Handsome.
I always said that you would
be with me forever. Though you are not with me in body, you are with me in
love and in spirit, my boy. I remember all the fun times that we had, cantering
down the beach, launching over jumps, eating lunch together in your paddock,
the big moves from MA to VA and then on to NC, grazing you in the hay
field, and playing follow the leader in the ring. You have been the constant
in my life for so long, a constant listener, a constant friend, and a constant
reminder of how lucky I am to have had you in my life.
I hope that you are comfortable
in your great field up there in the sky, playing with your best friends
that have gone before you. I know they were as happy to see you. I can imagine
all of you galloping through the clouds as you do your signature buck
and twist, and flirt with all the ladies up there, my Mr.
I love you, my handsome
boy. I have since the second you stepped off the trailor and I
will love you more and more until the day we meet again and walk
over the bridge together, side by side.
