This story gave me chills from the moment I heard it. A wonderful grandma and her husband adopted Gabby when she was two years old. Their granddaughter, Judy, shared the story of their passing with the Dodo.
As soon as Grandma and Grandpa brought Gabby home, she went straight to their bedroom, made herself comfortable on the bed, and settled in for a nap.
She knew that was her forever home.
Sadly, not long after Gabby became a part of their family, Grandpa passed away. Grandma and Gabby moved to a smaller apartment complex for seniors because Grandma couldn’t manage a large house alone.
Granddaughter Judy Admired Their Bond
Judy always admired the bond between Grandma and Gabby. She made a promise to herself that she would get a pet one day, hoping to experience the same friendship and unconditional love that Grandma and Gabby shared.
Gabby spent her days with Grandma until the very end. As they both grew older, they slowed down, but they still cherished each other’s company. They were like two sweet old ladies.
But eventually, Gabby started spending more time alone. Around the same time, Grandma lost her appetite and a significant amount of weight. It seemed like their journeys were coming to an end.
Gabby Was Ready…
Grandma took her to the vet, and they made the difficult decision to let her go. They believed it was the best thing for Gabby.
Grandma held Gabby as she peacefully closed her eyes for the last time.
At that moment, Grandma said goodbye to her best friend. She went home and took a nap, but sadly, she never woke up again.
Grandma Died Four Hours After Gabby
Just four hours after Gabby’s passing, Grandma passed away too. It could have been a coincidence, or maybe Grandma’s heart couldn’t bear the loss. Judy believed their souls were incapable of being apart.
Judy now has a dog, and they are always together, much like Grandma and Gabby were. She feels grateful to Grandma for teaching her the importance of having pets and loving them deeply.
“I have Grandma to thank for instilling in me the importance of having pets and loving them hard. I like to think that Gabby was there in spirit to comfort Grandma as she took her last breath, just as Grandma did for Gabby a few hours earlier.”
Judy believes that Gabby was there in spirit, comforting Grandma in her final moments, just as Grandma had done for Gabby a few hours earlier.
They buried Gabby and Grandma together, and Judy is certain that their bond remains as strong in the afterlife as it was while they were alive.
