I told her, just before leaving New Jersey:
"You've got to be here when I get back."
Unfortunately, the demands of man are but a request to God.
Lilly had become quite ill over the last week. She went to the vet's office twice.
They gave her medicine at first.
Yesterday, she spent the day at the vet's getting IV's for dehydration.
Chris kept me updated throughout the day.
After a long day, she bought Lilly home. She described her as lethargic, disinterested in both food and drink, and looking sad.
I knew in my heart of hearts I would not see her again.
My phone rang shortly after 10:00 pm.
Lilly passed quietly into the night in the arms her beloved owner moments before.
Air Traffic Mike, brokenhearted.
