Bentley Decker My Gentle Giant - Words can't express how much I miss my sweet boy. I had no idea that when I left for work, he would be gone by lunch. My baby was a perfectly healthy 3 year-old Great Dane for goodness sake. He was like a 180 pound Mack truck. He would take out furniture and keep trucking...if I had only known that his weak heart didn't match his tough exterior. I am so glad we completed our daily ritual...a hug and a "mommy loves you buddy, I'll see you when I get home." It has only been a week, but I still see him sitting on his ottoman and watching tv...his favorite hobby. I still expect his head to be laying on the countertop while I'm cooking dinner. I still lock the ice maker on the fridge, because he learned to push the lever and get an icy snack. He had an over-the-top personality that I miss. Even though 3 years was nowhere near long enough, I was blessed to be his mommy. Until I see you again, rest easy momma's boy. You will always be in my heart, and I will never stop missing you.
