To Rowdy Wilson (April 5, 1999 – April 9, 2012)
With a single breath, my life has been changed forever. The last 13 years of my life have been repainted with a single brush stroke. I cherish every moment we had together. I cannot imagine my life without you in it. Rowdy, oh Rowdy; you’re gone. My heart has been broken. There’s a little Dachshund-shaped hole in my heart that can only be filled when we meet in heaven. You were my constant little shadow and companion. Together, we went through cancer and chemo, diabetes, blindness and getting old. Together, we lifted each other up through all of our trials.
Save me a spot in the big chair, and one day I will be there to hold you again.
