Edd.

quote1 copy
At 11:35 yesterday morning, the world lost one of the best and brightest and bravest of its men. He was surrounded by people who adore him, and he was a testament of strength and true love until his very last breath.   I am forever humbled to have known him, to have been a part of his life, and to have been a part of his death.  Edd, thank you for teaching me true selfless love even in the face of cancer and more suffering than most people can imagine. You lost a lot of things—almost everything—but you didn’t lose yourself.  Cancer couldn’t take YOU.  And it never will.
At 5:07 yesterday evening, our 15 year old family dachshund, Nicky, went to be with Edd.  They were best buddies, and it seemed appropriate that they go on the same day. Even so, my heart is broken into a million tiny pieces. A chapter has ended… a long and hard one, but full of characters I truly loved. I’ll miss those two more than I can express.
For the rest of my life I’ll strive to be someone like Edd, and I’ll strive to be the girl he always thought I was.  Rest in peace, Edd and Nicky, and a most heartfelt and tear-filled thank you for all you’ve given to my family.  You fought the good fight. Thank you.
Edd

  20. I was so afraid when I saw the title something like that had happened. My heart breaks for you and your family and especially your mom. I even teared up here at work. I'm so sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  21. My heart breaks for you and your mother becuase I understand what your going through. In the past 6 months I have lost my mother in law and father in law both to cancer and seeing them lose their battle was heart wrenching. My husband will forever be changed and I can never fill the void he has. I will be grateful to have known my in laws for the time I did and the impact they made on my life will be everlasting. Now Edd is in a painless place and he can be himself. You all will be reunited one day.

  28. I'm sort of new here, I stopped by a few months ago and I just sat and read Edd's story. Now I'm sitting here in tears, and not teary eye tears, the big tears that roll off your chin and fall into your lap.

    You did such a beautiful job of capturing Edd's story and showing it to the world. I am wishing all of the peace and positivity to you and your family that I can muster.

    Take good care. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

  40. Bless all of your hearts! But I'm glad he is free from the suffering and grief. There is something bittersweet about the dog leaving on the same day. I firmly believe that animals always know exactly how we feel. The dog was probably heart broken. Prayers for you and your family.

  56. I'm so sorry for your loss, there is never the perfect thing to say or anything to make you feel better. I understand, in my own way what you are going through.

  59. Jenni I hope this finds its way to you, I am so deeply sorry for your loss but so touched with how you, your mom, and family have taken this and let it change you for the better and not the worst. Your strength is such an admirable example. Tragedies, loss, and trials like this turn out two different types of people - those who let the darkness take a hold of them, who refuse to recognize the joy and blessings they once had and become consumed in their heartache, or those who realize how lucky and blessed they were to have those sweet moments with their loved ones and let the loss change them into someone better, stronger, and wiser. You are forever changed, but for the better. And for that I admire you. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time and I hope every day gets a little easier for you to breathe, live, and be happy.

  61. Beautifully written. I am so incredibly sorry for your losses. I can't imagine how you are feeling right now, and I don't know the right words to say. Just know that you are in my thoughts and I am praying for you and your family.

  62. I just posted a quote a few days ago, and I thought of it when I read this.


    "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world."

    -C.S. Lewis

    I hope God is proving to be you and your family's hope and happiness.

    PS. It's so sad and striking how a person changes and looks YEARS older when they're about to die. My uncle died last year of multiple myeloma. Close to the end, we could just see death coming. It was so strange and almost awe inspiring. Death is such a paradox.

  63. Jennie, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So sorry for your loss.

  69. That is so sad! But at least they are together :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm sitting here in tears. This was so beautifully and thoughtfully written. Through death we are able to find so much to appreciate. We can reflect back on the life that one lived and see the full spectrum and truly understand life better as a whole because of it.

    As Edd and Nicky have both passed on, I'm sure there is a deep ache within your soul. God has a plan and that is so evident to me, especially after reading that they both left this Earth on the same day. They're together now, watching over you and your family. Smiling down always. I hope Edd and Nicky both find my Mom and they can be new friends :)

    I know that right now nothing can be said to take the pain away. I am so deeply sorry. You are loved and cared for and have thousands of us here for you to lean on. I'm thinking about you, Jenni and praying for comfort for you and your Mom.

  71. This brings a tear to my eye. I obviously don't know Edd or your family, but the way you speak about him makes it obvious that he was a truly wonderful man who made the world a better place. May he rest in peace with his puppy! Thinking of you and your family <3

  73. Hi Jenni. I know I haven't been around for a while, but I had been following Edd's story and, as soon as I read his name, I just had to click onto your blog post. I am truly sorry that he has passed away, but I know that he had been through a great deal of suffering, bravely born. What a lovely man he sounds. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family at this sad time, especially your mum. How very touching that Nicky went to join Edd on the same day. They are both at peace now, and free from all earthly burden and pain.

    ReplyDelete
  74. tears and chills and sympathy and sorrow. In a way, we all expected it, and yet, death never seems prepared for. It is always a shock and a heartbreak and I'm so, so sorry.

  75. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with you and your family. He sounded like a wonderful man and his fight was inspirational. I can only hope that he is now at peace and no longer in pain. I hope that you and your family can find peace within your memories. He is alive in your hearts. May they eternally RIP

  80. My heart breaks for you. I know how hard it is to watch someone slip away from cancer - lots of hugs for you right now.

    Lord God, I pray for this beautiful family right now. Help them to rest in knowledge that you give life eternal and Edd is now sitting with you pain free. Lord I pray that you heal their broken hearts and dry their crying eyes. Show them your mercy today, God.
    AMEN

  88. Thinking about and praying for you and your family right now. I can't imagine what a difficult time this is for all of you. But I think it's obvious to everyone just how lucky you were to have them both in your life for any time at all. Grieving is good and it has its moment, but try not to forget that the last thing Edd would have wanted was to bring you and your family pain. He's up there watching over you all right now and biding his time until someday you all head up there to join him. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Tears!
    You were on my heart and mind all day yesterday if I had your number I would have called you right up and said the Lord has laid your burdens on me today
    As much sadness as their is in this chapter, joy will come in the mourning and in the morning...
    He died so that he could live in the life everafter-
    Tears

  110. I have followed your story for some time & I have to tell you that Edd would be proud of how you carried his "torch" so to speak. You are a wonderful, kind person and it is very obvious that he loved your family dearly. Nicky and Edd are a symbol of the true testament that the friendship between dogs and mankind is unbreakable. I will continue to pray for healing for anyone who crossed Nicky & Edds path. Take care!

  121. Thinking of you and your family and sending positive energy your way. This poem has always brought me comfort when loved ones have passed... I believe the words to be true.

    Death is nothing at all
    I have only slipped away into the next room
    I am I and you are you
    Whatever we were to each other
    That we are still
    Call me by my old familiar name
    Speak to me in the easy way you always used
    Put no difference into your tone
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
    Laugh as we always laughed
    At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
    Let it be spoken without effort
    Without the ghost of a shadow in it
    Life means all that it ever meant
    It is the same as it ever was
    There is absolute unbroken continuity
    What is death but a negligible accident?
    Why should I be out of mind
    Because I am out of sight?
    I am waiting for you for an interval

    Somewhere very near

    Just around the corner

    All is well.

    Nothing is past; nothing is lost

    One brief moment and all will be as it was before

    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again.

    It is the same as it ever was
    There is absolute unbroken continuity
    What is death but a negligible accident?
    Why should I be out of mind
    Because I am out of sight?
    I am waiting for you for an interval

    Somewhere very near

    Just around the corner

    All is well.

    Nothing is past; nothing is lost

    One brief moment and all will be as it was before

    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again.

  123. In the most bittersweet way possible, at least he got to go with man's best friend. It's almost as Nikki was waiting for him to finally let go. My heart is broken for you and your family Jenni, I'm so sorry.

  131. Aw Jenni I am so so terribly sorry for both of your losses. We both know Edd and Nicky are in MUCH better places and who knew they'd be together on that journey?!

    My heart goes out to your momma, too, but if she's anything like you I know she's a strong woman. I've watched my mom go through a lot of the past 4 years with losing my dad so if you ever need anyone to talk to, I'm here for ya.

    Love you girl! I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  133. I know words can't take away the grief and pain your family is feeling over your loss but my heart is with you all. I don't comment too often here but am a regular reader and have followed along on Edd's journey & through all your pictures and words he has always come across as a genuinely kind and wonderful human being. I have two doxies and like you they are my kiddos and couldn't imagine living with out them. The fact that you lost two wonderful lives yesterday is the sad part of life that I wish we as humans didn't have to experience.

  134. Hey Jenni!

  135. Dearest Jenni, I am in tears right now. My heart is broken into a million pieces for you and your family. I had a feeling something was up when I saw your tweets last night....sigh! My dear aunt (that was also fighting cancer) went home to the Lord a month ago and it's just the hardest thing...words will never be able to express the pain. Even though we've never met in real life, I am HERE for you! If you ever need to talk, vent, etc. PLEASE dont hesitate. I adore you and cherish our little online friendship. BIG HUGS from California. And give that momma of yours a BIG hug too, ok? XOXO

    Sorry to hear of the loss of an incredibly wonderful man. I've been thinking about you and your family this week and I'll be praying hard for you all. This is not the first time an animal has passed alongside its master. I don't know if its ironic but its like they aren't meant to be without each other and will explore heaven together!
