It is with unimaginable pain that my precious Sissy became an angel yesterday held tight in my arms. I can't think...

Oh Jackie,
I'm in absolute shock, over this news. I'm so sorry it was time to help Sissy pass on. Sissy knows how much you love her, and I'm sure she was comforted to be in your arms when you helped her leave this world. You gave her an amazing life, and she'll always be in the hearts of you and those who came to know her.
I hope the fun and happy memories of Sissy can comfort you during this sad time. I'm sure she and Fritz are romping around and having a grand old time at the rainbow bridge. Sending cyber hugs your way and a kiss skyward for Sissy and Fritz,
Audrey

Oh jackie what you did for sissy was beyond what most people can do . You always kept searching for an alternative way to get sissy stable and you did with sissy giving that smiley face saying good job mom

It did appear from the beginning there was something else was going on with your girl to create the instability

glad she had you and you having her its is a symbiotic relationship based in love

I was not expecting to read this news. Like everyone else I have been in awe of how much you did for pretty Sissy. She had a wonderful life with you. So many of the "gang" from when we first joined this forum have passed on.

Please know that I am thinking of you. Big kisses to Sissy in heaven.

xoxo Judi

Oh no, Jackie... I'm so very sorry. Given all the love and dedication and worry you have devoted to your sweet girl over the years and all of the struggles you two went through, I know you're devastated by her loss.

You were a steadfast and devoted mom... Making Sissy a very lucky girl to have you.

Sending Sissy a kiss skyward and you a hug and my deepest condolences.

Natalie

Oh no, so sorry to hear this, Jackie. You threw yourself 110% into her care and well being, which I'm sure she knows. You two shared a great life together.

I can only imagine how painful this is for you.You have my deepest condolences and prayers, and Godspeed to sweet little Sissy.

Oh, Jackie, I am so sad - I know the grief is just so unbearable right now. You dedicated yourself to her care and your life revolved around her schedule. It is so tough - I will be thinking about you in the days ahead.

Fly free sweet Sissy! No more pancreatitis or food struggles - only the best treats and no pain or shots.
