Saying "I love you"...

My boyfriend and I haven't taken this step yet *sigh

I feel like sending him this pic

We're almost approaching 3 years of 'dating'...

Luckily I agree with these sentiments...

Is it bad that I need/want him to say it first?!

❤ My Shorty ❤

me wearing Shortys' cross

The funeral was held last Thursday. I am quite pleased with how it all came together.

In true Missy Style I managed to leave most of it to the last moment, but the Funeral Directors at Le Pine were very patient- as you would expect.

This photo was found when my sister cleaned Shorty's flat... It was the only photo he had and it is of me and him when I was a tiny tot and I think it really summed up our relationship to perfection... so much so, that I rang the memorial booklet people right away to see if I could get it put in the booklet last minute. The booklets were just about to be printed, but they held them back and waited for me to email them the picture to add to it. Aw ❤

I suppose I should count myself lucky... But I never really knew how much was involved when it comes to organising a Funeral.

I am responsible for giving Shorty the funeral he deserves and I feel really overwhelmed right now.

We usually use Le Pine for our family funerals and Shorty is no exception.

There is just so much to think about. I met with the Funeral Director and she went through things with me, but I came really unprepared. I just didn't realise what was involved. I don't want to get anything wrong.

Shorty was a Richmond Tigers fanatic... So, I chose Yellow flowers for his casket, which they will tie with a black ribbon... Richmond Colours. But is that the right way to go? I don't know... I am not into having the onus on me. I composed the death notice and again, I just don't know if it is, if I covered everything I need to.

Still so manys things to finalise... and I haven't really even started yet. I just feel exhausted at the moment.

I was a better person having known you.

Thanks for always being there and for being the best childhood friend anyone could wish for.

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, "come to me."
You didn't deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
