Death looms in autumn

After hearing about numerous deaths of friend's family members this past week, I just learned my dog, Koko, died tonight. He was in his favorite spot in the house. He was only five and a half years old. Now I'm just waiting for a call from my mom. I loved him a lot.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about Koko. I know she will be dearly missed. Here's a meditation from Bl. John Henry Newman that I love to read when I think of pets dying, or of other beautiful things of this world that will pass away:

    "God has created all things for good; all things for their greatest good; everything for its own good."

    This comes from his meditation on Hope in God-Creator. A source of hope indeed!

  2. Thank you Ross for your kind words.
