Emily D. 1999-2014
Emily is dead. Our wonderful friend died on Sunday 24 August. For twenty four hours she could do nothing but lie on her side. She would not or could not roll over onto her other side. She ate some small pieces of chicken and she took a tiny bit of water from a spoon. She lay in front of a glass window in view of the Galty Mountains. There is no way that her old eyes could see the mountains but it is nice to know that they were there for her. We were not there. She was in Skeheenarinky and we were far away. We are heartbroken. Her death was not a surprise but it was a terrible terrible shock. It is still a terrible shock. We have been moving around the house and outside always expecting to see her. We are always hoping to see her. We are not able to move her water dish nor any of her other things. We are pretending that she will be back soon.
