A Memorial for Scout
August 1998 -- February 21, 2012
I love you with all my heart and hate thinking of your not being in my life. I hate to see you suffer so much and hope the things we have done to make you better have not made you suffer even more -- I just wanted you to be with me and John for as long as possible. You have helped me through a lot in life and I want to thank you and thank God for bringing you to me.
Now, we want you to be free of this illness that has taken its toll on you and that is why we are setting you free of this world this evening. I know it took all of your energy to hop up on the bed and curl up with me this morning, but I believe you were telling me you were ready to go home. You have lived a wonderful 13.5 years but it isn't long enough for me.
Go home, my little boyfriend . . . be free and play forever more. We love you and will be with you until the end.
Thank you for everything.
Mom & Dad
R.I.P. Scout (Smith) Newman (August 1998 -- February 21, 2012)
