From our first year together to your 14th birthday, you always knew how to make me happy. At 11 years old, I was happy to have a dog. At 24, I was proud to have a little brother. Now at 27, I feel like I lost my best friend, but I'll forever be thankful for your unconditional love. You passed away on my boyfriend's birthday, and I feel you chose that day because you felt I had found someone who could, too, love me unconditionally. July 1st was the day you left this world, but the day Adam entered it, and I know this was all part of your plan.
I remember taking you for walks at Rim Park. We'd see cranes and I'd pick you up and tell you, "look Danny, they have legs like you. Maybe someday you'll come back as one of them". After you passed, I walked our same walk. There was no crane in sight, and I felt so far away from you for the first time in my life. As we were leaving the park, there it was. I almost leaped out of the car while it was still moving! There you were, as beautiful as can be, and I knew it was you. My family encountered 6 cranes in less than two weeks.
Losing Danny has been the biggest loss I've ever felt. And yes, I've lost multiple human family members and friends. But the bond Danny shared with my family and I was undeniably strong and one I'll never forget.
RIP Danny boy, I hope your 16 years, 7 months and 18 days were the best days of your life 💐
