Dear Patti; It doesn't rain, but it pours for you, my dear. God must consider you a very strong person, he has given you so much to deal with, right now. There always comes a time, as we look back, that we come to understand why things happen the way they do, but in the midst of everything falling down around our ears, it seems we've been abandoned. You have not. Pour you heat out, Patti dear,
as many here do. We often feel like it's our furkids that keep us sane. Another will appear on the horizon, in the weeks or months ahead, and you will see, not Zeke, as he will never be replaced, but another furkid, totally his or her own unique self, who will bring the joy back, when you're ready.
