Thank you all. It's been a strange feeling today not having Simon around. Everyon's kind words mean a lot to me.
I picked up his ashes this afternoon from our vet's office. Apparently, they had them put in a polished wood box and had his name engraved on it. When I realized that they'd done that for us, that it's not part of the package, it just made me cry all over again. People are just too nice sometimes.
