Anyone who has ever experienced the unconditional love of a pet knows that they truly are part of your family. On September 13th, Sallie Hammett lost a member of her family: her 7-year old Golden Retriever, Charlie.

Sallie decided to cope with the painful loss by sharing an obituary in the local Easley, South Carolina newspaper.

Sally’s tribute touched people all over Twitter, who shared their condolences and memories of their own lost fur friends.
