Thank you for your kindness during the most difficult time of my life thus far. I wanted to share Mias memorial for your memorial page.
Mia came into my life when I was 28 years old. From the moment I saw her we became inseparable. Looking back on our life together, I truly believe God placed her in my parents back yard tree that Fall day because he knew I needed a pure, unconditional and loyal love in my life at that time. Mia is my best friend, my soulmate the only living and breathing creature that gave me more in 14 years than I could imagine in a lifetime. Our connection and memories over the years will forever keep her spirit alive for the rest of my life until we are reunited again. Mia’s diagnosis of heart disease came out of nowhere and I never imagined I would lose her this soon. I wasn’t prepared to accept her fate that the doctors delivered last month but again God knew we needed more time to accept the inevitable and gave us a month together to make the most of the little time we had left. The decision to euthanize her was the hardest decision I have ever had to make in my existence. I sat with it for a few days wondering if I could get just one more day with her until finally I asked God and dear friends for guidance and realized keeping her alive for me was no way to honor the incredible and unbelievable life we shared together. Mia’s love was selfless, unwavering and her loyalty could never be repaid. It kinda makes me laugh a little because here I am talking about a cat but truth be told many people will never understand or experience a connection and love as pure as we shared. Not only was Mia my child, she was my best friend, my therapist, my study partner, my dinner date and so much more. She was the light of my life and I am going to be broken without her here with me for a very long time. I read something recently that said it’s better to say goodbye a month too early than a day too late. I would rather set her free from any illness or pain than to keep her here for my comfort and fears. Mia will be missed every day that passes but I pray she is always with me and lets me know she’s there. Thank you, Mia. Thank you so much for fighting so hard up until the end. You have made me a better person and I am forever indebted to you. Just when I think the tears have run dry I realize they are endless. RIP 4/17/08 – 1/22/23
