Memorial Stone

We got a stone engraved at Marymoore park so the whole world can know of you Cinnamon. It was a hard day seeing it, but we tried to pick a nice one with a view of the pond and fountain.

We love you so much.

I miss going to the park with you and letting you run around and smell everything and playing with the other dogs. We love you.

For some reason this I remembered this morning that a while back my friend Josh asked if he could put Cinnamon's picture in a game environment for one of the Nancy Drew games he was working on for work. And I put her picture in an illustration for a website.

It's nice to think lots of other people I've never met get to see her beautiful face.

I miss you a lot tonight Cinnamon.
For some reason I keep remembering the last moments we had with you and it makes me really sad. I wish you were still here with me. I wish I was thinking of the happy times. I wish I could give you some more loving right now.

4 months

Today is four months without you Cinnamon.
We walked by the grass spot at the end of the street that we used to sit at on nice days. The one with the yellow flowers, and where you would find good grass to eat.

Its paved over now except for a small area, so its not like you remember it. Its hard to pass now and not wish we were in the past sitting there with you.

We love you so much.

Today is three months without our baby

I sit and try to write the words, I want your heart to hear.
Hoping to find some comfort, in the fact that your not here.
I look out into the open field, that you once occupied,
Knowing now that field is empty, because my love, you've died.
I do believe with all my heart, that your soul has gone to be,
With all the other angel dogs, that you were meant to see.
We will have to stay behind, until God calls us too,
So do not be afraid, that he's only called for you.
The water is still, in the pond that you played,
And your bed is so empty, where your pretty head laid.
Our bed is to empty, where you once laid between,
the two people who LOVED you and now only dream,
That one day our eyes will shut one last time,
and you will come greet us, angel of mine.
Until then, I'll keep trying to see through my tears,
with memories you left us, to reflect through the years.
We'll never forget one minute we spent,
of loving and laughing, of places we went.
And I dread the day that your scent disappears,
for it's "proof" to me, Cinnamon, that you were just here!
But one day will come, when we'll start to see through,
the pain of the moment, and remember just "you".
Now you go and play, and look down when you can,
remembering we love you, and this isn't the end.

"They will not go quietly, the dogs that shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place the food dish used to be,
And sometimes, coming home at night, we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts belongs to them... and always will."
