Sad news this afternoon. Raider's brother, Auggie, left us too soon.
He had a loving life with my cousin but his body failed him and she had to make the saddest but most selfless of decisions.
This poem is running through my head tonight:
I`m not gone...not really
I haven`t gone away...I`ve only gotten bigger.
My eyes, so bright, now shine among the stars.
My voice sings with the wind in winter, as I leap
and dance among the tree tops.
I stalk the blown leaves in autumn, and brush the
flowers gently in the spring.
I come to you in dreaming,
on feet grown dreamtime soft,
And lay my cheek against yours and whisper;
Peace be with you.
Someday we will play again together,
you and I, among the stars.
Til then, fear not to love,
for your love gave my life meaning.
And I return that love to you...

Good-bye, Auggie. You were a very good boy.
