A final resting place. At last. Goodbye, Bill.
For the whole year I felt a chapter of my life was drawing to a close. The final curtain was drawn November 30th when we said goodbye to Runty.
Runty was diagnosed with stomach cancer earlier this year. He was responding so well to chemotherapy until November when the disease took over his body and there was nothing more we could do for him. It was a very sad goodbye but I felt I was doing right by him. After all, we had 17 years together and he had brought nothing but pure joy into my life.
And now Runty has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He and Bill are together now.
I have no regrets. I wouldn't have asked for anything else. It was worth the ride.
And it was also in 2009 when I entered a new chapter of my life. A new beginning brought on by a man named Carl Vercio.
I am looking forward to our future together. I am ready!
