I am so very sorry. I am so impressed that you have been able to make this impossible decision to honor Mosby by letting him go. What a true gift, you clearly love him so much and are able to put him first, which in my opinion is the true definition of love and a Mom. Marley's mom, Jaime, recently described saying goodbye to Marley not as the decision to shorten her life, but the decision to shorten her death. I think that's exactly what you are choosing for Mosby. How lucky any of us would be to have someone like you in our corner.

I can't tell you that I read this without crying, but I can't tell you I wasn't laughing and smiling also. What a wonderful, perfect day you have spent with Mosby. I know that made him so happy and what a beautiful memory for you to keep. 

There really is no greater gift than to honor Mosby in this way, to stay with him even when life is impossibly hard and to love him each and every second. This is how you get to beat cancer, with Mosby going out on his terms still feeling like Mosby. I hope you get to snuggle tonight. 

We will be thinking of you tomorrow and will be right here when you need us.

With so much Love, Amy & Rusty heart

I am just heartbroken to read this. The Colonel has captured all our hearts and it is so terribly hard to know that his earthly journey is close to the end. I do know exactly what you mean about the peace that comes from clarity at such a difficult time. You are keeping your promise to Mosby. You will not allow him to suffer. You have the ability, insight and, above all, the love to release him from his pain. 

Your day with him sounds just wonderful. A beautiful celebration of your love and the life you have shared together. 

We are thinking of you,

Kerry, my heart hurts and I have tears in my eyes knowing that probably at this moment the Colonel has been released from the pain of this awful disease. I'm so truly sorry for all of you, this latest turn in his story happened way too fast. How I wish that things could be different for all of you. But you are such a strong momma and made the kindest, most loving decision for your sweetie. It's clear he knew he was ready when he went in for the snuggle, what a beautiful memory to hold in your heart.

Thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey with Mosby right up through his last breath. You all gave so much to help him have the greatest life ever after cancer, and that's something that will never be forgotten by any of us. Mosby's blog, the adorable photos and videos, all of it add up to HOPE for others who are just now starting down the scary path of osteosarcoma.

Mosby, go find Otis and all our other heroes OK? We salute you and your pack, and send all our love across the universe to you're brand new heavenly spirit. Be well and keep an eye on our Tripawd angels for us. xoxoxox

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
