Default Ghost 13-05-2019

Ghost passed away this afternoon, he had been ill with cancer/tumour/growth in his abdomen, he had been getting the best palliative care we could give him.
Overnight his left eye had burst and his face was starting to swell, his weight had dropped even more and his tummy swelling was quite noticeable too.
I have buried him under the Cherry Tree in our new garden wrapped in tissue and in an improvised card egg box as his last resting place.
I may post a last image of him but it is quite distressing so I may not.

Here is a short poem for him ( I wrote two but I prefer this one)

A Ghost passed by this way today,
An ethereal form in pristine glory,
But I shall stay to tell his story,
No great deeds of daring do,
Just paws and whiskers as you do,
A Ghost passed by this way today.
RIP Forrest 05.03.2016
RIP Pippin 05.03.16-13.07.17 I won't forget you.. Ghost 14-07-17-13-05-19
"Some Angels don't have wings, they have little round furry bodies, four paws, a round nose, curious whiskers and unconditional love.."

Ghost had the best possible life with you, Rads. All the love and best care that a little furry chap could want. So sad to read that he has crossed the bridge. His health problems just too great. Now he is fully restored to health, he will have a grand time with many good friends to play with. His resting place sounds very dignified.
Heartfelt condolences to you and to Mrs Rads.

So sorry Rads. It has all happened incredibly quickly. He was lucky to have had such a loving home and is at peace now, free from pain. Play well over the Rainbow Bridge Ghost - such a beautiful boy. So sorry for your loss.
