I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, " There she goes! "
Gone from my sight . . . that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when someone at my side says, " There she goes! " there are other eyes watching her coming . . . and other voices ready to take up the glad shout . . . "Here she comes!"
Farewell, my beloved Bridget

My heart and soul.
John and I & the kids & Mary Elizabeth are overcome by waves of crushing sadness and tears. We are so deeply grateful for all of the calls, notes, emails, posts and flowers. I can feel your hugs. I can't imagine going through this without the most wonderful friends in the Corgi community. My heart is broken and I am paralyzed with grief and guilt right now. But I promise to get back to each of you when I can breathe again. With all of my love, Cathy
