My Sweet and Beautiful Polar Bear,

It has been almost one year ago that I lost you on January 21, 2003 and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about and miss you.

It is my first Christmas without you and it really is tough for me because I remember all the wonderful years we had together and how much you loved Christmas, and especially the snow. You would get so excited at the first snow fall and run outside and eat the snow and roll around in it. I remember the day I got you – all I could see was your little black nose and brown eyes – everything else blended in with the snow. You were so tiny that you had to hop like a bunny rabbit just to stay above the snow. And you absolutely loved to help rip open the Christmas presents and shred the wrapping paper on Christmas Eve – not to mention all the “treats” that night that you received.

I just want you back so bad and I have so many wonderful memories of the times we shared and the silly things you used to do to make me laugh. I can never replace that in my life – you were truly one of a kind.

I am so lucky to have had you in my life for almost 17 years and I am looking forward to that day when we meet again and can be together forever. I will never forget you and you will always hold a special place in my heart.


I Love You Always and With All My Heart
