2012 - 2021
My darling Boo Boo, it has been a full month since you left us. All the spaces at home – the nooks and corners where you used to venture, the rug on which you slept, the tunnel you made under the sink – and all the objects you have claimed, speak of your absence. Your sister, Hazelnut, searches for you every day. I wish I could help her understand and accept that your departure is irrevocable. I wish, too, that I had her faith in your eventual return. You have left a void in our lives, one I shall carry with me. And you will always remain my brightest, most beautiful star.
