2009 – 6/6/2023
My little girl, Belle Marie, was my everything. I rescued her at 6 weeks and she knew immediately that I was mom. Ever self-sacrificing, she would hang on my every move, word, and emotions. She cared for her older brother when he was ill. She cared for me, especially, when I went through grief and cancer. She simply wouldn’t eat if I couldn’t eat. A girl with a voracious appetite, she would still prefer to cuddle before asking for treats. In my life I’ve never known a more loving sentient being, and I doubt I ever will. Belle passed in my arms as I sang to her and she took my heart with her.
