My sweet boy. You left this world and forgot to tell my heart how to move on without you. The house has never felt so large, my heart has never felt so empty. It’s hard to wake up and be painfully aware of the absence of your warmth. I will miss your patch of puppy fur you never lost behind your ears. I will miss you barreling down the hall to greet me, even after I’d been gone for 5 minutes because you just couldn’t bare to be apart any longer. I will miss your bone tour that you put on for anyone who came to visit; your love of simple things in life always reminded me to do the same. I know you had a lot of joy left to give, but I hope you know how much joy you filled this home with while you were with us. I wouldn’t give up one second with you.
I promise I’ll take good care of Madeline and protect her like you would, so you don’t need to stress about that any more. I promise to keep your favorite bone safe for you. I promise to never forget you.
I love you Conner Galligan, you can finally sun bathe and nap for as long as you want.
RIP Conner Galligan: 6/24/11-1/8/17
See you in my dreams.
