The battle is over and the beast thinks it won. No way. It took my husband's body today but it will never take his spirit or mine.
Paul crossed over late this afternoon peacefully at the hospice center. His decline was so rapid it seemed like it was in the blink of an eye. We had such a great Christmas. A good memory.
His request was no sad faces. Be happy for him. He's seeing all those he loved that had gone before him including all his dogs.
He had asked that a memorial fund be set up at our Vet for rescue animals and for people who would have to give up their animals because they couldn't provide needed medical care. We got our first rescue dog yesterday. She is so sweet but so undernourished and needs some other medical care. She was abandoned by renters downtown. We've name her "Downtown Judy Brown." The name of the fund is Pawing It Forward. If anyone is interested in helping these poor animals send me a private message with your e-mail address and I will send you pics of our first rescue and information about Pawing It Forward. It's a wonderful tribute to a great man and it will help us rescue dogs from high kill shelters and give them the medical attention they need so they can be put into foster homes and eventually be put up for adoption.
Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes over these past months. I will still be lurking in the boards and posting from time to time to give support to all my new friends.
