Kenny, December 24, 1997-July 28, 2011

My friend Kenny passed away today. Born December 24, 1997, came to live with me March 1, 1999. A captain's exam, my mother's death, a master's degree, the end of a few relationships--every challenge I faced, this infinitely sweet and funny little person was there with his silent support. Twelve years, four months of laughs and love. God, if there is a God, please keep him warm, safe and close to me, and please reunite us someday.

Ah, good God, George - I'm so sorry. We've been through this too many times ourselves. Sometimes it soothes us to talk (or write) about it but, in the end, words are meaningless. Just know you have our condolences and complete understanding.

Requiescat in pace, Kenny.

With our love,
Keith and Debbie

I'm so sorry! It's amazing how a pets silent support can get you through just about anything. Kenny was very lucky to have found you and loved you with all of his heart. You will be reunited someday.
Love,
Debbie

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your little Kenny. From the photo I can tell that was very loved, cherished and well cared for. Despite our best efforts, there are some things in life that are beyond our control. Please accept my sincere sympathies.

Just popped onto the blog and am really sorry to hear about Kenny. He was clearly a loved and adored ball of fur and I know he was lucky to have had you for his 'person.' It is amazing how much we learn about ourselves and what we are capable of through the relationships we have with our pets; he was a good steady eddie for you.

I'm so sorry George. You gave him a wonderful life and I hope that you can find comfort in knowing that, and holding near fond memories of time spent together. Big {{{{hugs}}}} my friend.

Hi George,

I just read on your blog about losing your dear friend Kenny. I'm so sorry that you are going through this pain of losing your dear friend.

I understand the pain, if you remember I had Benjie for 17 1/2 years. It took a long time to heal from losing what I called my first baby.

With time you will remember all the funny, sweet, loving times you had together and those memories will help you get through.

Deepest sympathies,

Angela
