In need of emergency vet bill to be paid. Thank you!

For 15 years, this wonderful animal has been my best friend. Many of you know him by having met him, and others know him by the countless stories I've told about him. He was loved by so many people. I often say that my invites into your homes were largely because of Gomez. I couldn't have asked for a better best friend!

In the past week we have learned that he was extremely anemic, had an aggressive infection and an enlarged heart. Although some days it seemed like he was getting better, he was just too weak to fight any longer. Who could blame him. This ol' boy has put on more miles than most people I know and we've been through a lot together. He is the reason I woke up most days.

As hard as I tried to help him get better, it was evident that he was tired of fighting. His heart was giving out and he was having too much trouble breathing, so my neighbor and her husband were kind enough to drive us to the emergency hospital. While he laid there looking up at me with those big brown eyes, I knew he was asking me to let him go. I couldn't let him be in any more pain. I knew he was holding on only for me. So I had to make the most difficult decision in my whole life and say goodbye to my best friend. Now he is with the angels and I picture him running around on clouds happy and watching over me and Ta'Tae.

Those of you with pets don't have to imagine that even something as tragic as this boils down to money. It was hard enough to wake up this morning and realize that he wouldn't be on his bed looking up at me like he has done every morning for 15 years, but now I have to worry about taking care of his vet bill.

I would consider it to be a great honor if you would like to contribute to Gomez's memorial (aka emergency vet bill). I am hoping to receive his ashes and keep a small part of him with me forever.

I also want to say "thank you" to everyone who has sent me emails, texts, FB messages and cards. Once I can get through more than a few minutes without breaking down, I promise to reach out to all of you personally and say thank you for your love and kind thoughts and prayers.

RIP my dear friend. You were loved by many and will not be forgotten! XOXO
