    Unhappy Quote help please?

    My dear departed Lab Crash's littermate crossed the bridge yesterday at age 16 y. 2mo. 2 days. Her owner, my dear friend, is so sad.

    I'm looking for a quote I've seen here.

    It talks about people who choose to share their lives with animals whose lives are so short are special, knowing that heartache and loss is inevitable ...something like that.

    I had it bookmarked but my Fire died and I lost it.

    Can anyone point me toward it? Thanks.

    I think perhaps this is what you are looking for...

    Fragile Circle
    We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
    Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
    We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
    never fully understanding the necessary plan.
