On April 19th, 2011, my beloved cousin Timothy passed away. It was extremely sudden and has left all of us feeling confused and heartbroken. My mom called to tell me the news yesterday evening. She started crying as she said "I have bad news." Immediately I pictured Chester, my 13-year old Wheaten Terrier. I have been waiting for the phone call for a few years now telling me that my childhood dog has finally moved on to a better place.
One year has passed since we lost an amazing friend, cousin, brother, son, and grandson. Tim was one of the best parts about our family, and his physical presence is sorely missed. I haven't read this post since I wrote it a year ago, it breaks my heart too much. Today I am reading it again and thinking of my sweet cousin, Tim, and his mom and brothers. We miss you Tim, we are grateful for the impact you made on our lives while you were here.
