  • Francine,
    I know you are heartbroken and sad beyond measure. I wish I could take your pain away and bring Clyde back to you. To you, who not only loved him, cared for him when he was sick, supported him in every way you possibly could and continue to do so still today. He once told me โ€œ You gave him a new purpose in life but he was just sorry it took so long to find you.โ€ He loved you so much. You gave him so much; Tangible things and non-tangible treasures Happiness he had not known for years, a warm wonderful loving home complete with delicious meals, movie nights, daytime and weekend adventure, joy, silly jokes and private heartfelt secrets to share, magical holidays, new family members and more fur babies to love too. Most of all you gave him you! completely, unselfishly with all the Love, Respect, Trust, Loyalty, Friendship, Care and Concern any one could hope for. It was if you were able to roll a lifetime of love into a far to short few years. You gave him more than you can imagine., You are a remarkable human being. Clyde knew that and so do all of us that are lucky enough to know you and love you. May you find comfort in knowing, he could not have asked for a better wife, friend and partner in life than you. Hold your memories close just as you did each other and know that he will always be a part of your heart that not time, space or anyone can take that away. I am very proud of you and I know Clyde is too๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•
