We said goodbye to our friend Ron this week.
He died on Monday morning. SHE went to see him in palliative care, but was too late.
The world lost a wonderful gentleman.
It wasn't unexpected, Ron had been ready to go for a long time, and when finally diagnosed with cancer just decided to go with it.
Unfortunately, while we were all away--SHE in Virginia
and us in detention-- Kelly, his faithful kelpie,
was sent to the Bridge.
Kelly loved Ron and wouldn't take food from anyone else,
not even Ron's wife.
The ice cream man always stopped to give Kelly an ice cream.
One day, Kelly was alone, so he left the ice cream inside the gate for her. She wouldn't touch it.
The one time she went to the kennel for a few days, she
wouldn't eat or do anything....
So the decision was made.
We will miss them.
