Unexpected Reminders of Loss

more info

I found his stuffed toy tucked in a corner and there staring at me was all the ache of losing my wee four legged friend. There it is, a sudden reminder, and it hits you like a ton of bricks with a spasm of unmitigated loss. I don't want to touch it, or move it, because it will be one more step to removing his existence.

Oh don't move him. Unless it's onto your bed.

I'm so sorry to hear you lost Rufus. I remember doing a little picture of him, (quite some time ago now).

I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to move/touch something that has a strong connection, but never had the insight to know why. I think you explain this brilliantly: "it will be one more step to removing his existence"
