To our dearest Max,

It's been 3 weeks since you've been gone, and I still can't believe it. It seems like yesterday you were still here with us by our side. I'm sorry that we didn't know sooner that you were really sick, but thats whats concealed with deadly kidney disease. I'm sorry that you were in so much pain. I really thought you were going to make it, we didn't want to accept you had to go. But you were so sick my baby, we simply couldn't see you suffer any longer.

For most of my life, you were there for me. Ever since I was 4. I know sometimes I took you for granted, knowing no one lives forever but thinking that you wouldn't leave us until years to come. But now I am truly grateful for your presence in our lives and the blessing you truly were.

Max, you had the sweetest soul, you were always happy no matter what, you loved everyone and everyone loved you. You had that effect on everyone you met, you were just so lovable. Sweet natured and a gentle soul. Never once were you aggressive. No matter what you stood by us, you loved us unconditionaly. That's the true beauty of the animal-human bond. The uncondional love, the undeniable compassion, the unimaginable forgiveness, the unwavering devotion...

I know me and 'Mummy' weren't there for you most of the time, but we went with you on your most difficult journey when you needed that love and support the most. and I hope you understand the difficult situation we were in. We did love you so much. We always will.

You were the most handsome ball of fluff, and certainly a beautiful a personality to go with it. You were an Angel, and I guess God needed his Angel back. I will never forget you Max, you played an extremely significant role in my life. I love you always. I can't say it enough.

I will never forget your happy face and your ability to lick everything and everyone. I will never forget your generous kisses, and I miss them quite terribly.

I feel a sense of emptiness since you've been gone. Knowing you're with me in spirtual form keeps me little at ease. It is comforting to know that I've got your ashes next to me when I go to sleep.

I love you so much Max, I will never stop loving you.

I'll miss you forever. Until we meet again.

We love you. Rest in Peace, sleep tight with the Angles.
