Yes, you read the title correctly. I know a lot of you have been following Murray’s journey these past 5.5 years on the blog. I even debated on writing this post, but Murray was a part of the blog. Plus not all of you are on social media or may have missed the news. On Friday January 25, Murray took his final nap at the age of 13. Back in July, Murray developed a tumor in his jaw, pretty much bone cancer. It has grown tremendously these past six months, and he was in a lot of discomfort. It was the worst day of our life, but we now know he is resting peacefully, something he hasn’t done in a few months.
Thank you everyone for your support and kind words. It is touching that so many of you care and even checked up on me. Just knowing he won’t be here for the holidays or to greet me at the door makes it so hard, but I know someday he will meet us on the rainbow bridge (and if you’ve never read the poem, grab the tissues and read here).
