A special tribute to my brother German

Sorry for not writing for the longest time.. So much has happened over the weeks and we needed sometime to absorb and digest everything that has happened so far.. 

It was meant for a call for celebration when mom picked up the phone to call granny. But in return, we received some devastating news on German.. He left to a better place.. 

German took a peaceful ride over the Rainbow Bridge on 2 September 2010.. Granny said German was so ready to leave, he just lay in a position for Dr. E to give him his shot without needing any assistance from the nurse. 

I guess his body has really given up. Granny said there was a sudden viral attack that caused many open wounds all over his body and his old body just won't heal anymore..

Guilt started to feel mom's soul as she felt she has never really been there for the beautiful gentle giant. She wish she has shown her more love like she has with Baby and me, and most of all, she wished she was there to see him for the very last time.  

A huge dent is what you have left in our hearts 
A true and unconditional love is what you have always given us
We cannot thank you enough for being the most hard working soldier
Keeping us safe day after day
Your time has now come, so rest in peace my dear boy as you have worked enough

You will forever live in our deepest loving memories

Oh dear Zelle and Mom, I'm so sorry. I just read this and I am crying. I am so deeply, deeply sorry.

It is so hard to say goodbye. But you can take comfort in knowing that German will be happy and running freely with BabyRaisy, Hana and Laura at the bridge....

I'm so very sorry to hear of German passing... I always wondered how is German doing since you mentioned about Baby and German a while back as I know his time here is not long but this is still unexpected... run free, German and we know you're happy across the bridge looking down upon us all.

Licks, hero

I am sorry Zelle... I hope you and your Mommy's heart heal. If it makes you feel any better my grandpa just shipped your prize! I am sorry that it is late though.

I'm so sorry about German. He's running free and happy and not in pain now and it was his time from what it sounds like. It's still a sad loss and will take some time to feel better.

lotsa licks, Lola
