Loved Mama's cooking, Loved to eat, Loved to ride in the Jeep, Loved to chase the water as it came out of the hose, Loved chasing the vacuum when Mama was doing housework, Fell in the pool one day and it was very difficult to lift that big lug out of it, Loved to be rocked like a baby (when we could still fit him on our laps, slept in bed, under the covers, head out on pillow like a human, was scared of the clothes basket??, was scared of the fly swatter (and no we NEVER used it on him)??, Had the sweetest disposition of any dog you'll ever meet, WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MOJO!!!

Hello my baby, Mama just wanted to let you know how very much I love you. My heart aches so much that I can harly make it through the day. Every morning when I get up, I miss your sweet eyes that watched every move I made. I miss having to step over you when I get out of the shower. Most of all I miss you watching me putting my things in the car to go to work and your eager eyes waiting to hear either "I'll be right back" or I'll see you this afternoon...and the pitiful eyes you gave me if I said the latter. Your daddy misses you too. He can't even look at your memorial yet. His face is so sad all the time and sometimes when he comes out of the bathroom, his eyes are red. The tears are streaming down my face even as I type this. However, two nights ago, as I got up to go to the bathroom and stepped around the place where your chest used to be that you used to hop up into the bed with us...then remembered it wasn't there and you weren't in the bed, I began to cry...but then I heard Jesus say, he is not with you anymore because he is with Me and I am taking good care of him for you...and my heart felt a wonderful peace. I love you so much my baby, I can't wait until we meet again. I'll see you on the bridge.

Hello my baby. Today was not such a bad day...tears didn't come until late this afternoon. I was washing the pots from one of your favorite meals that I cooked. (steak in a gravy) and as I was looking out of the window, I saw the spot on the grass where I last saw you on your last morning with us and I could not hold back the tears....I miss you, and I love you!
June 15, 2011
Today marks one week since you had to depart from this world...and my heart still aches. I prayed this morning for a sign from God that you will indeed be there to greet me when I leave this world...a very peaceful feeling and chill came over me and I heard a very calming voice in my mind say: "Yes, but you must believe". I DO believe. GOD is awesome and has been so good to me, I believe that HE would grant us the pleasure of being together again in eternity. Until then my heart must ache for missing you....I love you my Mo Mo...I love you so much, it hurts!

Hi my sweet baby, I hope that you are having fun playing with the others. My heart still hurts, but each day the pain dulls some. I love you my baby and am glad that you are no longer in pain. Daddy has not been able to bring himself to clean out the Jeep yet and it still has your hair in it and it smells like you. I can not bring myself to drive it yet either. I can't bear the thought of your not sitting beside me in the passenger seat as I drive. I will miss you every day until we meet again. Godd night sweet baby!
June 17, 2011
Hey my baby, I just wanted to let you know that I had the Jeep detailed today because it made me too sad to smell you or see your hair in it. I couldn't even drive it there. Carrie had to do that. However, I did drive it home and I didn't even cry. I talked to you all the way home...did you hear me? I got in the pool and it just wasn't the same without your sweet face watching me and the sound of your panting... had one good cry just now, and I'm better.....I love you and I miss you! Mama

Daddy & I took our first ride in the Jeep today. We put the back seat in so that the void back there wouldn't be as noticable. I cried when we were putting it in because it was just another reminder that you won't be riding in it with us anymore. But I know that where you are you are having more fun and you are not suffering any longer...my heart is healing, it's just going to take time. I love you Mojo...I love you so much!

Hey My Mo Mo, Just missing you and this makes me feel closer to you. Floating in pool today and wanting to cry b/c I miss you panting and lying as close as you could to the pool until I got out. I was praying for Jesus to ease my pain and I was looking at the clouds and all of a sudden, I could see you in the clouds. I didn't tell anyone b/c they may think I've lost it, but it was you. I'd recognize those eyes and that nose anywhere! I believe that Jesus was trying to show me that you are OK and that you will be there for me when it's my time to go there. I love you my sweet big old baby!
June 20, 2011
Hey Mo, Mama has been thinking of you all day. I can't stop missing you or wanting to cry. You are not the first pet that I ever lost, but you are the one that stole my heart! I do wish that I could feel that big old body pressing against me in the bed at night. Miss Ceely still snuggles up to me, but that little old kitty feels nothing like you! I know that I will miss her too..she's 14 and I know that her years are numbered but right now she's reveling in the fact that she now is getting some of the attention back that you took over when you came into our lives. I registered a tribute to you in the candle lighting ceremony tonight....I love you my baby!
June 22, 2011
Hey sweet boy! Sorry I couldn't write to you last night. The computer was giving me trouble...I spoke to you though, and I do believe that you hear me. One of the nurses at work showed me pictures of puppies today and she wanted to give me one...all that did was make my heart ache...I'm not ready and probably never will be. You were so special...I hope that you know how special...I love you Mojo and I always will. It's not that I couldn't love another, it's that I don't want to...looking foward to your sweet face and those loving eyes when we meet at the bridge! I Love You my sweet, precious Mojo!

Hey my sweet baby, Mama has not been able to write to you in a few days because my computer has been doing crazy things. I think some bad people are trying to hack into it. Tell Jesus to stop them for mama. I had a rough day last Thursday because I had to go get cat food for Miss Ceely..she was completely out...when I got close, the memory of the day I had to bring you there to end your misery came flooding back...I cried so hard that I could hardly tell them what I needed...They understood. Then on Sat I was cleaning out cabinets & closets...good therapy, I thought. However, I came across your leashes and halter with your name tags & rabies tags...I had forgotten that they were hanging in my pantry closet by the door....I cried and cried, then I cleaned out the cabinet where your shampoos and ear cleanser was, and I cried some more...don't worry mama will get better...it just takes time for the hurt to dull. I just love and miss you so much! I had to ask the angels last night to pray really hard for me because I was about to cry again and the pain in my heart was feeling unbearable...As I was praying your sweet kisses came to mind and it made me smile! God is so good! I know that was confirmation that I will get to have those kisses again...I love you MoMo! I WILL see you on the bridge!
June 29, 2011
I love you my baby! The boys and Jillian miss you...they ask where you've gone...I tell them you are with Jesus!

Carrie's birthday today. All of the grandbabies are here. You would have been so nervous. I bet that you are happy you aren't here! I miss you though...I need a big Mojo kiss...tiring day my love, I miss you!
Been doing pretty good this week. But just now, searching music on the internet, I came across "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and the tears unexpectedly started flowing. I miss you so much! After Jesus, you are the first thing I think about when I open my eyes, and the last thing that I think of when I close them at night. I never noticed how much I loved you...I just did and still do! Kisses my baby, until we see each other again...

Went out to eat tonight with daddy, Jessica & Jeremy. Thought about how you loved to get a special treat of left-overs when we'd get home. I brought some grilled fish to Miss Ceely. She wasn't impressed. I miss your sweet face waiting for us when we'd get home my love. I made a big picture like the one on your memorial here & framed it. It's on my dresser so I will still wake up and go to sleep seeing your face. Mama loves you!
July 7, 2011
My heart is healing but I still think of you often. I was eating ice cream in bed last night and my heart hurt a little thinking of how I wished you were there to lick the cup. Everytime I rinse my coffee cup, I think of how you loved to like the cinnamon sugar and whipped cream off of the rim. I miss hugging your big neck & your kisses...
Hey my baby, I still think about you every day. I tried fooling myself and saying that I am doing fine because I know that you are happy now, but I can't help missing you. You were part of every part of my day...every day. I keep thinking that you will be there when I get up or when I get home or just when I turn around at different parts of the day. I pray that you can still feel the love that I have for you....Mama loves you my big boy! Good night...

I'm still missing you my love, sometimes the crying takes me by surprise. I know that I will see you again though and that makes me feel better...I just miss feeling that big warm body next to me in bed (Miss Ceely had started laying in your spot, did you tell her to do that? That little body is not near as warm as yours was)... I really miss looking at your sweet, sweet face every day...you always had the sweetest look in your eyes that mirrored your sweet soul! I love you very, very much...Mama

I know I haven't written in a long time, but I know that you hear me on the many ocassions that I tell you that I still miss you. There will never be another dog in my home that will ever replace my love for you. People think that they are helping when they say that I need another dog. I miss you so much my baby, and I know that I will see you again, but not a day goes by that I don't wish that I could see you right now. I LOVE YOU my sweet, sweet baby! I will see you at the bridge...
January 16, 2012 I still miss you my love...I missed you very much during the holidays! I missed watching you running around in the middle of all of the gift opening...I missed buying you a gift to tear open....I still sometimes, like this morning, think that you will be on the other side of the door to greet me when I put the key into the lock. I still think of you everytime there is left over meat that I know you really liked....I love you so much....my heart is heavy this morning and I wish you were here to lick my face!
April 12, 2012 Missing you more than ever now that spring has arrived! I miss chasing you around the pool...I miss taking you for rides in the jeep...and even now, ten months after you have gone on to Paradise the tears still flow. I've had many pets, but you my love, were obviously truly part of my heart....I will think of you always until we meet again on the bridge....I love you Mo!
May 22, 2012 I am sitting here crying as though you have just left me....I guess it's because that anniversary is approaching. I was cooking bacon this morning and that started a flood of tears because I have been thinking of you a lot lately and holding back tears. I love you so much my Mojo and I look foward to seeing you again some day...until then there will always be a piece of my heart missing...see you on the bridge
June 3, 2012 Hello my love, the anniversary of your death is approaching and I have been missing you terribly...and crying. A new puupy has come to me quite by accident, but he looks just like you...only more brown than white....he sneezes like you and has the same two moles on the right side of his face. We took him in to save him from going to a shelter on a trail basis yesterday and I cried all day because it made me really miss you! There will never be another you. Daddy was not liking this, he did not want to keep him, but this morning, he got up and took him out of the kennel in the kitchen (something you NEVER had to sleep in) and he brought him in bed with us...I think he's warming up to him....I know and you know that this puppy could never take your place....but he is a sweet little pup and he will help to heal my heart I think....I love you so much, I still very much look foward to seeing you again...and I know that God will allow this...I hope to spend eternity with you and all of my other loved ones in paradise with Jesus...I love you Mo, please comfort me from wherever you are on this coming Friday....even with this new little pup whom I think we will name Tucker, I will be thinking of you....it's going to be a tough day!
June 8, 1012 I surely am still missing you my love and today, the anniversary of your death, was not as hard as I thought it would be....but what I would give to actually see you and hug your big neck! I love you so much Mo. Tucker is helping to heal my heart. He looks and acts so much like you at that age/size. I LOVE YOU MO! I will NEVER forget you! (and here come the tears) I look foward to seeing you on the bridge! Mama
July 7 2012 Still missing you my love! This new puppy is waaaaay more active than you were! Maybe you could whisper in his ear that Mama and Daddy are too old for all of his shenanigans! You might also mention that biting is a no no! I love you Mo! I will never forget you!
July 26, 2012 I cried for you again today, my love! I have decided to let Tucker go where he will be happier for right now....he did not change the fact that I was grieving for you like some people said he would...I still miss you! I love him too though and want what is best for him and I just can't give that to him right now! I love you my big baby boy and I will miss you always! ....good night love,
see you on that bridge!
September 22, 2012 I have been thinking of you my sweet Mojo. Tucker is a little fireball and I can feel myself getting in deep again....so much so that I am beginning to be fearful of the pain that I know will come again one day....hopefully a long time from now. I re-read the story I wrote right after to had to laeve us and I am crying with pain still in my heart...I find myself calling Tuck "Mo" sometimes and I have to correct myself. I will miss you forever my love...until we meet again. I love you Mo
