I prayed, read him a poem, held his hand, told him we loved him. Lots of tears. It was an extremely heart-wrenching, difficult, emotionally-draining day.

I brought Sadie with me for the hike...we have hiked the rest of this 18-mile trail (in pieces), but saved this part for last. Today was the right time. I formally 'introduced' her to Cosmo and Clara, and thanked them for allowing me to pay forward the love I gave to them, to her now. The grief has come full-circle.
Sorry to hear about your friend. Thank you for taking great care of Sadie.
