Tears...

Tears of sadness stain my cheeks this evening friends. A dear friend of mine SPENCER was helped along to the Rainbow Bridge today. His parents loved him dearly. He had fallen ill a couple of weeks back and had been diagnosed with small cell lymphoma. He had exploratory surgery a week ago and was to start chemo this Friday. His parents chose to help him to the Bridge today as he also had an, as of yet undiagnosed secondary illness that caused a rapid decline in his health. They suspect the secondary illness may have been FIP.

In honor of my dear friend I would like to share my favorite poem:

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
~Robert Frost
