Goodbye Little Man

07/22/19

Our hearts are heavy and filled with sadness as we had to send our little sweet boy over the Rainbow Bridge this morning. His mind and body had finally had enough and what was once our Cordell was nothing but a shell of a dog. We had almost 10 years of joy from this lima bean and are so grateful he chose us as his people that day at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary! We wished that he could have lived forever, but knew that wasn’t a possibility. It was just by chance that he was able to spend one of his last days with all of his family and see his best friend Wemberley just on Saturday. He got dirty exploring and got lots of lovies from his aunts and uncles! The hole in our hearts that his passing has left will never be completely filled and we will miss him sooooo much! Have fun chasing rainbows and running in the fields until we see you again. We will always love you and will never forget you! Hugs and kisses from Mom and Dad.

Much News – Good and Bad

 

I guess I’ll start with the bad news first. We finally had to put our last cat Simon to sleep August 27th! He was a real trooper though and lived longer than our vet said he would. He went through two thyroid surgeries and had progressive liver disease, but was a real good guy right to the end. It is very sad not having him around and I still catch myself looking for his little “accidents” when I come home and then realizing I won’t find any! Now we are pet less for the first time since almost the beginning of our marriage, which is over fifteen years. The house is very empty and quiet now without them around. Even so, I think for the time being, we will take a break from having a pet. We will still miss our kitties!! We also said our goodbye’s to our good friends the Hillstrom’s as they left Snoqualmie for San Juan Island. We have known them for many years, enjoying Packer games, dinners, holidays, and many good times. Although we won’t get to see them as often as in the past, they are still close enough to keep in touch and visit. They are definitely living the good life at the Island!!!

 

Now with better news, Alex and Mo are now hitched!!! They got married August 16th at a beautiful location called The Olsen Mansion. It was a beautiful ceremony and Mo was a gorgeous bride. Many people showed up from all over the place. Cousin Nick came in from Texas, Donna and Chris came from La Center, even our old friends the McEvoy’sdrove in from Roslyn even while they had visitors at their house. The only down side to the day, it was hotter than the surface of Venus that day. We were all dressed to the nines in 90  plus degree heat and it was miserable. But bride and groom made it through and are now beginning their new lives together! They honeymooned in San Diego and are now back with Mo ready to begin her new career as a teacher! I set up a photo album at our Flickr page and you can check it out here. We have been pretty busy and I have been putting some long hours behind the wheel of the bus, so I’ll leave it here and bring more news shortly!
