A Sad Note

A beloved family pet, my mom's standard poodle Rusty died today at the very respectable age of 13. Of the many pets we have had over the years he was by far the most affectionate, and he is already greatly missed. Needless to say mom is pretty broken up. Those of you who have experienced the loss of a family pet will know the pain of which I write.

I had a Cocker Spaniel for 13 years before he died, and I know this is indeed a painful loss for you. May God be praised for the companion and comfort that Rusty was to your family for so many years; and may He comfort your mother and all your family in this sad time.
