Farewell to My Sister Kirby

There is much sadness about. We were trying to pull ourselves together to blog about the passing of Kirby and we read about the dear, dear Wally.

It is quite possibly more than the human can take.

The sudden passing of Kirby has left us heartbroken. The house seems empty and far too quiet.

We don't know how we will cope.


  1. Oh no...

    I'm sure she greeted Wally -

    And the two of them khan welkhome Poppy, Patches, and Penny's dad - he left us today too -
