I have missed Nikki every day since she passed in September 2012.
Things got a lot better as time went on. There are still triggers which will bring a tear to my eye. The photo on the right is the most notable one. Songs: “Good Morning Starshine” was what I used to say to Nikki when she woke up in the morning. “Slice Of Heaven” was playing on the car radio when we took our final trip together.
I found some comfort in the following:
- talking to people who understood pet loss, including attending a companion animal loss support group.
- with the help of a photographer friend, selecting photos of Nikki for wall mounting.
- reading The Loss of a Pet, by Wallace Sife.
