Me: Our hearts are going out to dear Tony the Postman.
Nell: Yes. His beloved Labrador Milo was taken ill suddenly yesterday evening and Tony and family had to make the heartbreaking decision to let him go.
Me: We all know how it feels to lose a loved one but when it is sudden like this it is so very hard to accept.
Nell: Yes. David wants him to know that he is here waiting to give him as many cuddles as he can take and more.
Me: I expect you all are.
Nell: Yes, I myself shall be waiting at the gate with everyone to show our love. Tony is family.
Me: It’s so sad, Nell.
Nell: Yes, it is. But remember what I told you.
Nell: When we leave you we never really do. We become your Guardians. It is a great honour for us all.
Nell: So, as you go on with your lives, as you must, please know that we are watching over you.
Nell: Love like this doesn’t go away. Ever. It is far too strong.
Nell: Milo is watching over Tony right now. Sometimes the hardest decision is letting us go but Tony made it because he loves Milo.
Nell: And Milo knows and loves Tony for it. Always. I know you would do the same for me.
Me: Of course. It’s just that we love you so much.
Nell: We know.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
Nell: No need for sorry. Not today.
