Schlomo passed away Friday evening. He died at our house surrounded by love. 

He’s battled cancer for 5 years and he put up a hell of a fight. In the end his heart failed and he had fluid in his lungs, which makes me think that he told cancer to f*** off and that it wasn’t going to take him down. 

His loss feels unbearable, but his passing was beautiful. I was the last thing he saw and heard, it was just him and I. The team we’ve been for over 13 years. I told him he didn’t have to take care of me anymore, that I can look out for myself now and that he can let go. 

It doesn’t feel that I can take care of myself right now, but I will try to make that promise even though it feels like my heart is ripped out of my body. Schlomo was pure light and everything is dull now.

I will never forget that gentle soul and all that he has taught me over the years. Kindred soul love of my life. 

So long my friend. Run free.

Ohhhhh Mascha I am so sorry. Your beautiful boy had such an amazing run with this awful disease and in the end he did not let it win! No way! He was an amazing senior dog role model on three legs, and an inspawration furever. And now, your handsome hero is with everyone at the Bridge, healthy, young and free from their earth clothes.

I know you must miss him tremendously. Thirteen years is such a long time. Our hearts go out to you, and if you want to talk we are here for you. If and when you are able, we would love to introduce Schlomo to new members and celebrate the many blessings and good times he shared with you.

So happy.  He’s so happy to have shared his earth journey with you.  And he’s  still sharing a journey with you, just in energy forn.  Yoj WILL feel jis presence  still with you when you least expect it!

Schlomo kicked that piece of s++t disease  to the curb!!  HE BEAT IT!!   Schlomo eill I aspire sll newbies, especially  “mature” newbies.  His legacy of hope and victory will re win part of this community furever!

Oh Mascha, es tut mir so leid. So unendlich leid.

I will never forget your kindness when you were helping me in my more desperate hours with tips on natural remedies and I will forever be thankful. 

I told him he didn’t have to take care of me anymore, that I can look out for myself now and that he can let go. 

It doesn’t feel that I can take care of myself right now, but I will try to make that promise even though it feels like my heart is ripped out of my body. Schlomo was pure light and everything is dull now.

I told Manni pretty much those exact words even though they almost killed me – as much as the silence killed me that followed. 

Since I got to know your heart a little bit I know how loved Schlomo was and I am absolutely sure that he knew that. Boy, I am fighting tears right now. You know you did what was right every step of the way so try and take some comfort in that. 

Things will not get better but they will become bearable again – most of the time anyway. and even agnostic little me feels Manni’s presence at times so I am sure Schlomo, too, will look in to see if you keep your promise. That’s the one thing you can still do for him.

Ich weiß nicht, was ich noch sagen kann, aber fühl dich gedrückt, melde dich jederzeit, wenn du mich brauchst.  

Schlomo wird hier nicht vergessen werden, von mir schon gar nicht.

Alles Liebe und ganz viel Kraft

Tina
