Heart Broken

My sweet girl has been miserable for a few days.  Her "Ella" has gone to Guinea Pig Heaven.
We buried Ella at sunrise yesterday morning.  We headed into work and her big brother, Kaleb stayed home with Bri for the MLK day.  Bri mourned at the grave site for a good part of the day.  She made paper flowers.  Her daddy promised her a rose bush that will be planted this Spring in memory of Ella.  Ella was a good pet.  She was sweet and never once bit me.  She provided a little girl a pet.  An animal to love and hold.  Bri is allergic to most animals.  She is so allergic that she can start swelling around people with cat or dog dander on their person.  So, Ella was the perfect fit for our family.  There is nothing worse than seeing and feeling the hurt that your child feels.  There is nothing that one can do to make it better.  Nothing.  It just hurts.  These life lessons are the hardest.  Ella will be missed.  I just never knew how much until it hurt.

I am so sorry for the loss of your daughters' pet! Pets become family members that's for certain.
