I’m So Sorry, Linda

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 11:55 pm

This postcard from PostSecret broke my heart.


It reads:

i work at a vet clinic, when euthanizing a pet, we give you the option of staying in the room with them or leaving.
…..always stay… they look for you once you’re gone.

I wasn’t strong enough to stay with Linda when it was all said and done. I had been there to give her all the injections and help her live a full year after her diagnosis with kidney problems, but in the end, I just couldn’t stay with her.

I’m so sorry, Linda.

  1. It absolutely broke mine as well.

  2. It’s hard to be there, it’s the only time I can remember my Dad crying.

    Everything else going ok Laura? It’s been almost a month since a non-twitter post on Starling and the same here until this post, I was starting to wonder if you were ok.

  3. That is heartbreaking. I hope you’re well.
