Yesterday, was one of those days. The colder weather was not his friend. His neck was giving him fits, but he was enjoying being outside and even found a place to rest in the sunshine. Shortly after this photo was taken, our sweet boy Bob passed away.
There is not much more I can say, except that our hearts are broken. He was so fragile and yet such a warrior. He never knew his own limitations and I never told him. It was my privilege to be his caretaker, he made me smile every day. It's a difficult day for us, one that will find us taking Bob for one last ride on the golf cart to be buried under the old walnut tree next to Sammy.
A huge thank you goes out to all those who helped us celebrate his life. So many wrote to me (and him) to tell us how much they enjoyed his stories. His Facebook fans were awesome, 1100 people, mostly folks he'd never met. They rallied when he was sick and they sent prayers. When he felt well, they all cheered him on. Never an unkind word, just lots of love and support. He was very lucky in that way. I'm so sorry to have to share this news with you, I know he will be missed. If there is any comfort for this loss, surely it will be his memory living on.
