14 years old
My Darling Thatch: Thank you for 14 wonderful years. They weren't always easy, but your love and devotion got me through them. When I had nothing and no one, you were there with your devotion. Your intelligence, your understanding, your love, and your sense of joy gave me a reason to live when I had no other. I miss you so much, My Little Man, and I look forward to being reunited with you when we will both again be in our prime and ready to have fun. Until that joyful day, I know I have a furred angel watching over me. Remember always, Mom loves her Thatch.
