I don't get here as much as I used to but I wanted to share with those of you not on Facebook.

On March 29th I lost my mom at the age of 91. It was not a surprise, her health was failing rapidly the last month or two but it's still incredibly difficult to lose your last living parent.


Today I sent Dante to the Bridge after 12 years and 11 months with me and at the age of 13+ years.

My heart is pretty broken at this point, Kaos will help with this wub

To lose so much so fast must be shattering. Your mother's distinguished age and also Dante's are facts, but I doubt that they lessen the pain.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

Ah Barb, what a rough time. Your Mom and Dante were both fortunate to have you in their long lives. I'm glad you have Kaos. I, too, am glad you posted although the news is tough.
