The light that shone so brightly lighting up my life has finally gone out. My darling Luci is no more.
How I wish to look down and see her sprawled at my feet! I will never feel her beautiful light eyes fixed on me, or feel her silky ears with my hands, hear her robust barks or the pitter patter of her feet. Her snores will no more reverberate through the house reassuringly. I will never again be able to hug her.
I was never short of words when it came to Luci but am now struggling to say anything more than this. Maybe the words will come again later, when I have processed the loss and accepted it, when I can once again think of her without the sinking feeling. Perhaps then I will write more stories about her which I may not have written yet, share pictures still on my phone.
Goodbye sweetheart. You will always live in my heart, always and forever.
Heart felt post. Our pets become more than a family. A soul who understands our feelings without saying.
They become more than family. So true.

So sorry Shail. I will miss Luci too…she was a big part of this blog.
She was indeed. With the children having flown the nest, it was about her that I mostly wrote.
It seems odd to like this post considering that you have just lost your best friend or the light of your life …. I can imagine your anguish and send you my condolences.
Thank you, Unishta. I am picking up the pieces.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I feel like I knew Luci in a way and I’m saddened by her passing.
A lot of those who knew her only through me have said they felt the same way as you do. Accepting her loss will take some effort.
I’m so sorry for your loss. They own part of our heart.
Yes, they do and their loss is so painful. Thank you for the understanding.

Liked only in the sense of acknowledging that I’m here, I hear you and I feel deeply for your loss. Luci was much loved by all of us for many years and I’m grateful for you sharing her with us all this time. I can’t imagine the depth of your pain right now but I can imagine what mine would be like (and will be one day), but you have my deepest sympathies xx
Thank you, Ken. I can tell you for sure it is going to be really hard. I still cannot think of her without that jolt of realization that I will never see her anymore, not even once.

Shail, so sorry. Hugs. Love and light and strength.
I hold you and Luci in my thoughts and prayers. I’ll see her meeting Chinnu, Kuttan, Paris, Appu, and all our fur kids, already waiting for us. Warm hugs.
Strength, yes I need extra of it. Thank you, Usha. You have been there many times.
So very sorry for this huge loss. Hugs.
Thank you, Nadira. They are family and the loss is really hard.

Thank you, Mick. She was very special to me.

I think we all knew that, Shail. Hope you’re well.
Sorry to hear that and it is very sad.I know you loved him to pieces. Hope Lucy is in doggie heaven.
Losing a pet is hard, I have known it before, but this was hardest of them all.
Heart feels heavy when I read about our dear Luci! My son has got the mug with her picture. I wrote to him just now. Time helps…She will always be with you, I know. Take care, Shail…Hugsss…
You have been there, Sandhya. I know you understand. Thank you.
I’m so sorry for your loss, Shail. Hugs!
Thank you, Vinitha. I miss her every second..
Shail there are no words adequate enough to fill the void Luci has left. Treasure your memories and photographs and be open to feeling her presence now and then. My heart goes out to you.
The void is so real, Anne. Her memories and photographs are my solace now.
Precious Luci – You are in my thoughts, Shail.
Thank you dear friend.
