SpazM loved to be included in everything
What more could we ask for? To be blessed with SpazM, a little soul that enriched our lives more than we could have ever imagined. Everyone saw this in her demeanor. SpazM's attitude and temperament were beyond any that our family had experienced, starting with the day her daddy left for Iraq to the day she left this Earth for her bounty over the Rainbow Bridge. After Daddy left, SpazM slept on Daddy's side of the bed for five days until she got to see him on Skype. She loved and shared the holidays with us, from dressing up for Halloween to decorating Easter eggs (pictured here) … She loved being included! Smart, funny and compassionate are the words to describe our SpazM. When Mama aspirated food into her lungs, SpazM laid on Mama's chest; and when Daddy hurt his foot, SpazM slept by his feet. She prayed with Mama too. Many are surprised to hear that she did things just to hear praise, not for treats. She would rather have human contact than toys. We miss our long walks together. She will always be "Daddy's lil' furl"...*sigh*...I love you my sweet babygirl. *kisses*
