Hello, friends. I have sad news to share. After several months of increasing difficulties and a few terrible days, On Tuesday the 16th, my sweet, gentle Jack left this world. In the end, he could no longer walk, so his wonderful veterinarian came to us, and our boy gently drifted off to sleep on his favourite spot in the kitchen. He died in my arms, surrounded by love.
Right now, I’m not able to talk about all of the things that made Jack special, but I’ve shared many of those things with all 0f you over the years, so I know you understand when I tell you that my heart is broken. I’ll be alright in time. I know this because I’ve walked this road before and understand that grief is the price of love. Today, though, that grief is raw, and I’m struggling for words, so there isn’t much more I can say. I’ll be around, but you may not hear from me for a week or so.
