vinatero Last night we said goodbye to our Sweet Baby Ethel. She only recently showed signs of slowing down last week and otherwise thankfully had been in really good health. We knew she was getting old and have been knowing that eventually we'd have to deal with her leaving our lives.
She waited for us to get home. She didn't go hide in a closet or under a bed. She waited on the bottom of the stairs so we would see her the minute we walked in the door. She could barely move but she took all of her last energy to lift her tiny head to acknowledge we were home.

For the next few hours we held her in our arms, talked to her, told her we loved her, thanked her, and told her it was ok to go. She breathed deeply and rhythmically and did not seem to be in any pain. She was just slowing down and had minimal struggle as she was taking her last breaths. She died while being held and surrounded by her family. Even Butch was there.

It was an honor to be her parents. She brought so much joy to our lives. We are heartbroken but thankful we were there to guide and transition her to her next journey.

We love and will dearly miss our Sweet Ethel Girl.

Thank you for your support, love, & understanding,
