June 21, 2014 - My beautiful Gus left this world

I've been too devastated to write about the loss of my love. We had stuck together through thick and thin - breakups, job losses, moves to new states, and many illnesses, but cancer was our match. When our eyes locked at the shelter in Portland 10 years ago, I could have never imagined the love that would grow inside my heart for this brilliant creature. Each night I wait for sleep to come so I can visit Gus in my dreams.
