How do you say: Goodbye?

Miss Sadie Boo
Nov 29 2004-Oct 25 2013
Having her final bath and it took the last strength she had.
When we broke the news to our kids yesterday that this morning would be Sadie's last they crumpled.
They knew it was best, bone cancer had claimed her and her meds had failed.
But it hurt.
So, so much.
After 2-3 hours of tears and heartache, they came up with a plan:
A bath.
Brushed teeth.
Clipped nails.
Final yummy breakfast.

Sadie bravely stood in the bath and collapsed afterward.
She let us dry her off, clip nails, brush teeth, and move her to my bed.
She will never stand again.
Nate offered to take her to the appointment so I wouldn't have to.
He is so wonderful!

The kids each asked for a moment alone and some pictures:
Quigley staying close by, he knew something was wrong.

 We are grateful for the years together and the love she gave us.
 Until we meet again sweet girl!
