We are truly overwhelmed by the tremendous outpouring of love and support from the blogosphere. We have received so many beautiful comments and private emails and cards from all over the world. We always thought of Thunder as a very BIG BOY, but he was bigger in ways we never dreamed. Mom has been trying to thank all our commenters individually, but so far we are only about halfway through the very long list. We promise we will get there eventually. We are finding that many of you don't have blogs and we can't always find a way to contact you - but please know that we so appreciate your kind thoughts and words.
We hope you enjoy our video slideshow of Thunder's life with The OP Pack. Mom apologizes for how long it is, but she found it very hard to eliminate the many photos we have of her special boy. It was a very tearful project, lots of tissues and sniffles, but in some ways, it was also very therapeutic. If you don't have time to watch it all now, please do come back another day and enjoy it then.
You can also watch it on YouTube HERE. Or click on the little rectangle in the lower right corner of the video box and watch it full screen.
We were not able to post our video through YouTube with the music Mom wanted to use because of copyright issues:( But we wanted to dedicate this song to Thunder.
Oh we never know where life will take us I know it's just a ride on the wheel And we never know when death will shake us And we wonder how it will feel So goodbye my friend I know I'll never see you again But the time together through all the years Will take away these tears It's okay now Goodbye my friend I've seen a lot things that make me crazy And I guess I held on to you We could've run away and left well maybe But it wasn't time and we both knew So goodbye my friend I know I'll never see you again But the love you gave me through all the years Will take away these tears I'm okay now Goodbye my friend Life's so fragile and love's so pure We can't hold on but we try We watch how quickly it disappears And we never know why But I'm okay now Goodbye my friend You can go now Goodbye my friend
Thunder, we all miss you so very much. This was just so not fair, but then cancer never is.
