Tribute to Milo

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 24 February 2008 | Views [915] | Comments [2]



Milo the sweetest baby in the world. The loss of you sits heavy in our hearts. No words can explain the pain we feel that we can never hold you again. never smell you, never kiss you.

You made our days in Amsterdam a home. It was your sleepy eyes that we came home to everyday with a warm smile - excited to return to you. Everyday you woke us up with gentle purring in our ears, a cute playful face that made waking up a pleasant dream.

Your pink feeties were gift of softness. Your tummy in the air a show of love and your happy nature brought a joy no one will understand but perhaps you.

I know you brought joy not just to us, but to to all who visited us at home.

Everyday you waited for us. Everyday your hope was our attention. Everyday you made us laugh. Everyday was a gift I wish I still had with you.

We your parents will never forget you. You remain with us forever. We miss you.

Who misses you the most though is Carlo. He cried for you. He will always long for the days to protect you, care for you, love you. You are his brother and best friend. You were his world.

We only hope your last days were of joy at being able to explore a new world. It was a privledge to have you in our lives.

No one else needs to understand us. I only hope you felt loved in our arms everyday you were with us.

I saw you developing from a tiny little kitten that was struggling to climb, jump and hold your own in a play flight with Carlo into a strong young boy. You would prove to me that you are brave and strong by doing risky things, it would fill me with the greatest of joy and with the greatest of fear.

Waking up to you in the morning sometimes in a gentle way and sometimes not in a gentle way! Always gave me the biggest smile. Having you next to me on the floor staring at me while you lay on your back trying to be cute, you knew it made me laugh, it gave me that smile that I needed before a long day at work and made me count the hours till I would return.

When I would call mommy at home and ask her how shes doing she would always tell me ¨the boys are right next to me taking care of me¨. 

I have stories of you that I could fill a book with in the short time I had with you. I thank you for every day that you shared your life with me. If there was anything I could do in my powers to have just a few more moments with you I would. I am able to come to some point of understanding knowing that you where free to rome around in the nature in your last days, and thats what we wanted for you to be free and happy.

I wish your soul to find the right body that will allow you to be free to explore the wild. I want you to know that every time I think of you I just have the best of memories. Thank  you Milito

Milo. WE LOVE YOU - yesterday - today - tomorrow - ALWAYS.

Dear Mary and Briel,

We have just received the terrible news. We are so so so sorry to learn about Milo's passing.

We cannot even start to imagine what you guys are going through, but make sure we send you both and Carlo the warmest of our hugs, and all our support. We share tears with you.

You know both babies filled our Amsterdam house as well, and the entire back gardens with their curious explorer's minds.

Not only us will be missing Milo, but we are sure Sokje, Skippy and other friends they met in our Amsterdam's 'backyard' will think of him as well.

Lots of love.

Pere & René.
