Today we said goodbye to our beloved Cactus. She and Hershey brought more happiness and love to our lives than we could ever express.
After Hershey passed away in December 2014, Cactus lay by the front door everyday waiting for her to come home. Kinsloe came into our lives in May and Cactus’ heart began to heal. The two grew inseparable over the last few months as Cactus’ mobility began to deteriorate.
Other health issues began to quickly catch up with Cactus. We could not bear the thought of her suffering and with a heavy heart let her go to be with Hershey this morning.
Cactus brought us joy every day for the last 15 years. The sadness we are feeling now is inevitable but it won’t take away from the decade and a half of happiness and unconditional love that she gave us.
