We miss you so Billy
by Angie Tam
We got you from the pet shop when I returned to HK after years of studying abroad. Without you I never would be able to settle in this city. During this 10 years you have bonded my family together, my parents and I had a lot more interaction, talking about the funny incidents or cute acts you did daily!
August 2014 you started walking awkwardly and the sudden loss of appetite prompted us to take you to the vet immediately. Several visits, many tests, and the tumours spread fast, we knew it was a losing battle. You could no longer stand nor walk, loss of appetite continues, and hardly were you able to fall sleep. Yet you tried your best to stay with us, enduring the pain day after day, till all that's left of you are your big round eyes.
It pains us as much to see you suffering... So we know we must let you go. On 29th Sep we put you to sleep... All 3 of us held you as the doctor had you swiftly slip away. Did you hear us crying?
Finally you could get some rest now, no more pain! We will always remember you fondly, we love you so much. This grief is unbearable... Me, mum and dad cries everytime we talk of you.
You may be gone Billy, but never ever forgotten.
We miss you so much... Very very much!
