Dear Dr. Monica,
I wanted you to be the first to know that sweet little Gumbo has made the journey to Heaven. Just like she promised, she gave me a sign that it was her time to go. And just like I promised, I had her in my arms through the end.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us. Without your help and your very special gift, I would not have been able to make the difficult decision that I had to make today. Gumbo went peacefully and she is no longer in pain. And my wonderful little Bayou was there to help her sister make the journey.
I promised to let you know and would appreciate any special thoughts you can send to both of my girls. I’m sure Gumbo is already running around with Mardi Gras up in Heaven and I will do everything within my human capabilities to keep Bayou comforted.
Bayou and I will definitely be seeing you in the near future and thanks again for everything. You are wonderful and I can’t imagine my life without you in it!!!
Charlene and Bayou
