A Special Message from Ryan Gibbs:
My Dearest Max,
It has been less than 24 hours since I had to make one of the most difficult decisions of my adult life and decide to end your pain and suffering. I knew Sun evening when you wouldn’t eat that the time had come to help you to move on and cross The Rainbow Bridge. Laying there that night beside you stroking your fur and holding your precious paw in my hand you gave me that it’s time to let me go now mom, I’m sleepy look and at that instance I knew that your old body was worn out and tired of fighting and you just wanted to be able to run free and be young up in the fields of Heaven with all your brothers and sisters past. Sit beside God’s throne and be sure to be a well mannered and obedient dog for him as you were for us for so many years. We had a GREAT 14 years together and when I lost you yesterday I lost a big piece of my heart that can never be replaced. I miss you so much already. It was an honor to be able to be your human mom. The day I brought you home from the shelter in Sept of 1999 was the day that my life and heart changed forever. No pet could ever replace you. You were the best there was. You were there for me through so much and you knew EXACTLY what to do to make me feel better when I was down and out. We went through so much together from my marriage to the birth of my Corbin, my separation and divorce, jobs changes, moves and new pets. You helped me see Corbin off on the bus his first day of school. You gave us nothing but love, understanding and acceptance and in return we gave you everything we could. I promise you I will try not to stay sad for too long but will remember you with the fondest of memories. I LOVE AND MISS you dearly Max, YOU were my best friend and companion. Take care and I can’t wait until the day we get to meet up again at Rainbow Bridge. Farewell old friend and I know from now until the day we do meet again you will walk beside me and watch over me like a true friend does. With all my LOVE and HEART.
