My beautiful Jaycee

I've wanted to write my short-story about Jaycee for a long time, so here goes:
My black Labrador Retriever, Jaycee, passed away on May 15, 2003. It was the most terrible day of my life. He was with me since puppy-hood. He was 11 years old and died with me and my husband at his side. It was the close of a beautiful and precious life. That's what it was. When he left, he took just about everything, my life as I knew it. His presence is so deeply missed here. It's been almost three months and I still can't get over this. He was too beautiful to die. Too sweet, too gentle, too loving to die. How can this be? This wonderful companion, my trusted friend, so giving and joyful. He made the simple things in life so important. Oh, I wish he were here. I miss him dearly. He made my life so happy with his endearing ways. Please don't tell me that I gave him a good life. I know I did. He gave me a better one. That's what hurts. My world has turned upside down since his death. I am not the same person anymore. It's such a big hurt. The sadness now has reached this deep, inner core inside of me that I didn't even know existed.
I will now, as I do every day, light a candle and read my poem for my beautiful Jaycee.
