So Long, Sophie
We are pausing today to mark the death of our beloved dog, Sophie. Sophie was many things to the five of us: running companion and bedside company, a warm and patient thicket of fur to nuzzle in when sad or lost, a happy face and thumping tail to greet you, and always, always a friend. A true member of the family, Sophie made dog lovers out of all of us. We thank her for her exemplary displays of love and devotion, for her wisdom in appreciating the warmth of the summer's sun equally with the crackling heat of the winter's fire, for her silliness. Regarding the myriad gifts Sophie brought to and leaves us with, words simply fail. The echoes of our time with her, however, will ring endlessly in our hearts. Thank you, Sophie, and we love you.
