(Remembering you... happy and alert)
My dearest Lorenza:
I want to thank to you to come into my life to enrich it. You taught me to be patient, tolerant, compassionate, friendly and open to strangers.
You taught me that the simplest things are the ones that make us happier.
You were always a happy girl and you showed it that every moment. Even when you were sick your wagging tail spoke for you.
How to forget the way you sat in front of me and with a glance you let me know what you wanted. “Walkie time”…. “Meal time”…. “Play time”…. “Go to sleep time”…. “Open the door to let me enjoy the fresh air in my balcony”…
I will remember absolutely everything about you and I will keep in my heart the memories of each day we spent together…. Even the times when you made me change places on the big bed… 3 or 4 times every night. You trained me very well… and I always obeyed you!
You came to me being sick…. and so you left. I promised you I would take care of you and I want to believe I did it… until yesterday, when your small body had no more space for your big heart and I could not stand to see you suffering.
I made a decision for you based on all the love I have for you and I hope you understood it.
Run free of pain my girl.
Your mom who loved you more than herself.

I want to thank everyone of you who came to visit Lorenza during all these years and specially today. Thanks a lot for all your love for my girl. It means a lot to me and I appreciate your friendship.
