Emily Redwood 8/4/00 - 9/30/08

By Morgana Sage

[EDITORIAL NOTE: Readers may want to re-read this previous story from Morgana first.]

Emily was being called
back to the Womb
to serve the Goddess Kali
but she didn't want to leave me,
so I had to take her last breath away,
and hold her till her loyal heart stopped.
She used her last bit of energy to raise her head to me
and say goodbye in her singing voice, NOT the crying one.
Blessed Be. I've earned my Goddess name finally...
KaliMorganaSage. Thanks Em!!!

I remember your previous post about Emily. Purrs from our animal family to you. And a candle lit for the brave canine soul.

Morgana,

I am very sad for you and can only repeat what I wrote before.

You and Emily were very lucky to have had each other....

When I was about 10-12 my dog died. After we buried him, I wanted to put a cross on his grave, but my Dad said, "No, Dogs don't have souls." I wonder?

It was one year ago on November 1st that we asked our vet to come to our home to inject our beloved Phoebe so she could be relieved of her pain. She was our 14 year old Basset Hound and both my husband and I still grieve for her. What a huge hole our furry friends leave when it's time fot them to go.

Thank you All for being here for me. It's been a month since Emily died, but I still weep when I come here to read your comments. You're so right about the hole...I'm in the habit of scanning my space, checking my four-legged's comfort zone...and there it is...a jarring void that Emily used to fill. I feel so widowed.
