We love you, Bob. Thank you for everything.


Bob’s passing was peaceful and gentle, on a pile of hay next to the sheep feeder while the sheep and cows ate their lunch. Mack was in the pasture with the animals, Caleb and a cat were right nearby, and The Boy and I were with Bob as he went to sleep for the last time. Dr Sarah is very kind and gentle, and there was no hurry or fuss … just loving hands to ease him on his journey.

I miss him terribly already, but it was time. As we sat with him before the vet came, I saw that look in his eyes, the one that says “It’s okay, I can be done now.”

You can rest from your long labours, now, Bob. Thank you for everything. We love you so much.
