A woman’s obituary for her golden retriever Charlie has touched the hearts of many online. Charlie died at the age of seven from incurable lymphoma, which he battled for five months according to his owner Sallie Gregory Hammett.
“Charlie’s favorite activities were walking, stick collecting, swimming, smiling and snoozing, ” the obituary reads. “If we’re being honest, Charlie loved everything life had to offer (except stairs. He hated stairs.)”
“His last days were so happy and will be cherished forever,” the obituary said. “He will be forever missed and forever remembered, but he left behind his fierce love, which never wavered.”
The heartwrenching obituary end by advising others, “In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you give all your pups some extra love in honor of Charlie.”
