Leaving a light on for Daisy

Daisy in May 2016

Today marks one week since Daisy died and we miss her terribly. Her sister Princess is very sad and lyrics from a song by Three Dog Night seem to express our grief perfectly: "It's just no good anymore since you went away..."

When Daisy got sick with intestinal cancer and eating became so difficult, she would wake me in the middle of the night and we'd go down to the kitchen so she could try to eat. Turning on a little night light there in the early evening and leaving it on until morning became a ritual of caring

I still turn that little light on every night, just as before. It doesn't feel right to turn it off yet. We are leaving a light on for Daisy. Her spirit still lingers here. Click on the photo to appreciate her sweet nature and dark beauty.
