Digby Cleary

July 12, 1985 - June 4, 1998

Digby - My sweet handsome baby man was put to rest on June 4, 1998. He had cancer. I found out about it after his exploratory surgery. The doctor suggested that it happen while he was in surgery. I wouldn't have any part in that. I brought him home and we lived happily for 6 more months. He was so noble and proud !!

I was always afraid that I wouldn't know when it was time, but Digby let me know. My father's death didn't even affect me like this. It's been one year and I'm finally coming to terms with it.

As he lay in my arms I mentally asked him to let me know if he was okay on the other side. I said that when I saw one lone white bird that I woulld know that he was okay. One week to the minute I was outside at work and I saw one lone white bird. I blinked and he was gone. I know that was Digby sending me a message.

I'll keep him in my heart for the rest of my life. I know he's flying around up there ... He was my very best friend. I miss him so very much.
