I’m one of them. Mowgli made it 9 years before her liver started failing and made it one more before it was time to call it quits a couple weeks ago. That girl was strong willed all the way to the end. I don’t regret a thing about it all, but I do miss her and while I know it will get better, I want that little hole in my heart to stay so she’ll always have a part of it.
