I know you are missing me very much, and I miss you too. Please don't cry because in a way we are still together. I am not in the same form, and though we can not physically cuddle or see each other, I am still with you in spirit and ashes. I know I was your biggest supporter during your university career through the good times and bad, and I am sorry I couldn't be with you until the end. I tried hard to hide my pain and suffering, but I was too ill. I didn't want to let go because I didn't want to break your heart, but you set me free, Mom. You are my brave girl, and you acted in my best interest. You performed the final and biggest act of love toward me. Know that when you come home your last day of your internship next week, when you receive your degrees at your convocations and celebrate afterward, I will be there to celebrate with you and cheer you on. I have always been proud of you and always will. Don't ever feel guilty for offering me a little less attention. I know how much you adored me and how important it is to focus on work.
I hope it is of some comfort to you to know that my health and youth have been restored to me. I feel exactly as I did in my best years. I am having a great time playing around here with our birds, fish, Stepbrother Toby, Cousin Eddie and Cousin Bailey. I also finally met Byron rat (as you always wanted me to), and he is so much fun. We're good buddies now, as are the other angel members of the rattie crew. Mom, you should see this place. It's unbelievable! Someday, I will take your hand in my paw and lead you here.
My new little sister Prada is so sweet. As you know, I was there to help you pick her out. She will bring you so much happiness as I have. She will love you as I did. You will share many happy years together as we did. She deserves all that you can provide for her. I want her to experience the life I did with you, Mom. She is a special little girl, as I was your special little guy. Please keep in mind that you are not replacing me in any way. I know how much I meant to you and always will.
Mom, thank you for setting me free. I know how hard it was for you and continues to be, but remember that memories are forever. One day, we will all be reunited and resume our life together. Just know that our separation is only temporary. Stay strong and you can call on me anytime you need me. I'll be there.
Love always, your special little guy,
