Dear Bunday Monday readers…

Dear Bunday Monday readers,

It is with a very heavy heart that I let you know that OpieBun passed away this morning. It was unexpected and I wasn’t prepared, although I don’t think any amount of preparation could mend my broken heart. Even though I know she is in a better place it doesn’t make losing her any easier. There are no words to describe how intense my sadness is right now.

Please forgive me if there is a delay answering your emails and/or comments.

Right now my heart is too heavy to do anything more than grieve.

Opie’s last picture at the Vet’s office

Rest in Peace
July 21, 2002 – February 21, 2009

Opie, You were my constant joy for the last 6 years. I will miss you immensely. I know someday we will be together again over the Rainbow.

  • 21. Beryl  |  February 22, 2009 at 1:09 am

    The time with our animals is the most rewarding but can be painfully short. I lost my precious kitty Clyde in November and I will never stop missing him but I am so grateful for the 8 years we had together. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • 22. Girl Japan  |  February 22, 2009 at 2:45 am

    I was saddened to hear of the loss of your beloved bunny. I know that she was a good companion for you and you will miss her greatly. If there is anything I can do to help at this time, I will be very willing to do it.

    As one who has had the sad experience of losing a pet , I know something of the loneliness you feel. Our pets give us so much enjoyment and pleasant companionship. I hope the good memories will temper the feelings of loss.

    Please accept my sincere sympathy.
