I’m going to apologise to all of you to begin with. I wrote about my dad being sad about Joe Frazier’s death; I had hoped to give you some happy news about something or other, just to lift the mood…..sorry, ain’t gonna happen today.
My very good friend Riya, who I absolutely adore, sadly lost her big sister Jaz. I knew something was wrong the other day because I heard Riya crying from her house across the street. Her mom, who we all call Aunty Sue, had gone somewhere ( I think it was to see the vet) but by then, well…
I never really knew Jaz because she has been ill and housebound for a long time, but I know she was a happy and content German Shepherd who never complained and I know Riya and Aunty Sue loved her very, very much. I am glad they have each other for comfort at this difficult time.
My mom was upset about it too because her and Aunty Sue have walked across the fields together for a few years now. I’ll be there for my mom and Aunty Sue as much as I can, and I’ll always stand by my friend Riya.
