"Feel free to add photos, messages and memorabilia to Luna's memorial, this is why I created it, so we can heal as a community and honor her memory. I also want to invite my friend Zelanda to post photos of Bingo, another family doggy that we miss dearly." -Rev Thomas Luke 
Luna was previously the pet of other people that Reina gave piano lessons too. When these people had a baby, they gave Luna away to the Sang family. All of us were going through a difficult time during that season of our lives, including myself. Reina gave Luna to her daughter Soleste as a gift.
Reina is my best friend, and I had the good fortune of taking Luna to the groomers on a regular basis. I would also take Luna shopping at Petsmart and put her in the cart and place many different beds on the floor and whichever one she laid in, I would buy for her. I must have purchased 8 different beds for Luna over the years. My favorite thing to do was spoil Luna! I would also take Luna to her very sweet groomer Michaela who would treat the dogs as she would her own. Michaela is a very sensitive, loving and talented groomer that treated Luna great! Luna loved Michaela and Michaela loved Luna!
Luna would spend a few days per month with me from time to time. I would spoil Luna because she deserved it. Luna gave me kisses whenever I was sad, she would lick my tears during a season of my life when I went to Christian counseling which at times was painful but rewarding. Luna always took good care of me, and I always took good care of her. Luna didn't have favorites and she spent an equal amount of time with each member of the Sang family, including me. Luna would even jump off our laps to go visit grandma in her bedroom.
When Luna stayed with me, everyone in Aventura that saw Luna would come up to her and want to pet her, or look at her. Luna was a people magnet, I used to take her to Waterways Dog Park, and car rides with the windows down so she could enjoy the sun and the wind. In my heart Luna became my dog-daughter, because I never had human children of my own, so Luna received all of the love from me that would have went to a human child.
What I can tell you is that all of us who loved Luna are deeply and profoundly saddened by her passing. Luna was very sick with heart issues that also affected her lungs. Jesus was very merciful towards Luna, I prayed to the father that the Lord would keep her comfortable and take her quickly near the end so that she would not continue to suffer.
The Lord answered my prayers, thank you Jesus! Now a huge aching hole is in all of our hearts, this is one therapeutic way that I am dealing with her loss, by creating this memorial-online for all of us. I also want to honor Luna because she was a very special and natural therapy dog, very smart and very sensitive of other peoples needs. Luna was a selfless doggy. I am hoping that all of us who loved her can heal in community by sharing her memorial link with other family members.
Dear Father God, please heals our broken hearts in Jesus name.
3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3 NIV)

Personal Notes

Luna thank you for always licking my tears when I was sad, you were the daughter I never had!
Added by Rev Thomas Luke


To all who loved Luna,

I met Luna a couple of times and she was always a happy doggie with a big smile and enjoyed seeing me each time. Luna seemed to act like you were never not her friend. She was a special dog and I love especially the way Thomas described her as his god-daughter!

Pets are like family members, they are always home- they never leave for the office or play dates by themselves or off to school or to hang out with friends or bf/Gf, they never leave you!

They are at the door when you come home, happy to see you! They follow you from that moment on and even go to bed with you. During the night they are there trying to snuggle close and just be near you. When you wake up they are there, in the bathroom they are there lol!

Dogs teach you about forgiveness, they never hold a grudge, the are always kind. They are perfect examples of Christ image. They never complain but only love!

What a gift they are! Losing them is really hard but we will reunite!

Grief Is a Unique Experience
Day 2

I am on day 2 of the grieve share daily devotionals. The profoundness of the pain of my loss is of no surprise to me. Luna was the daughter I never had. Luna angel, daddy misses you, but I know it was better for you to leave because so suffered so greatly. I love you and I miss you.

Love Always,

Your Dad

You may feel it is useless to talk about your grief because no one truly understands what you are going through.

"You sometimes feel after an experience like this that you're talking a foreign language," says Dora, whose daughter died. "You feel like there's no way anybody can know what you're feeling. There is absolutely no way anyone can know the depth of your pain. So you feel like it's futile to talk about it because words can't express the pain."

Although countless people have experienced grief before you, each person's response to grief is different. Your path of grief will be uniquely your own.

To my little angel-princess Luna.

I am happy that in the wake of the devastating Covid-19 virus, that I can place a virtual-rose on your memorial, because I cannot put one on your physical grave. Words cannot express the emotional and mental pain that I am in regarding your loss. I am grateful that you are no longer suffering with the severe heart condition that you once had. Happy Resurrection Day Luna. It's a great day for believers! Because we will be resurrected with Jesus! I love you and I miss you.

Because of the Resurrection, we are destined to live forever in new bodies on a new earth, an existence that will be so enjoyable that anything “we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory [God] will give us later.” For we “wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us” (Romans 8:18, 23).

Dear Luna,

I am glad that I have your memorial to express my feelings of grief, to tell you how much I love you and miss you. I just watched the recent Jeremy Camp movie about his wife dying of cancer. I hate sin because it causes death and death is ugly and sad. I am glad that you did something about death Jesus on Resurrection .

I believe that Luna will greet me in heaven along with you Jesus. Sin took you away from me, not your own sin, human sinfulness caused this when the world fell. In my heart, I assigned you the role as my dog-daughter. I treated you as I would treat a human daughter.

Because of the Resurrection, we are destined to live forever in new bodies on a new earth, an existence that will be so enjoyable that anything “we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory [God] will give us later.” For we “wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us” (Romans 8:18, 23).

Luna my little girl, Remember when I told you that you will always be my little girl? I really meant it! Sleep in peace, you will never be made to suffer again my angel... I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us (Romans 8:18 NIV) Love Always, Your crying dad

Dear Luna,

I fall asleep and wake up crying. I have a huge hole in my heart. I am grateful that I can visit your memorial and write to you and post flowers and other sweet things. I have been a born-again Christian since December 17, 2011.
I have not hurt this bad since I have been saved. I remember when I would give you a shower, your hair was flat because you were wet. I would ask for a kiss and you would give me one. I miss taking care of you. I love you, I miss you. I cannot stop crying.

Love Always,

Your Dog-Dad,

Thomas

Luna,

I brought you some more flowers. It's 1:13AM and I am weeping in front of my computer writing to you. I am in terrible emotional pain. You really were a naturally born therapy dog sent to the Sang family and I directly from Jesus. When you would hurt, I would hurt. I can't stop thinking about my little girl. I am absolutely heart broken. You were the first and only daughter that I have ever known.

Love Always,

Your dog-dad.

PS Soleste drew me a painting of an award for Best Dog Dad of the Year! It's very nice and I am so proud to have it!

Thomas
