She’s gone y’all. My Lady is gone.

Considering what was going to happen with her in a couple of weeks (read: transfer to a “facility”), I’d say this was the best thing for her. She went with her dignity intact and her defiant little head held high.

Miss U Nama.

To all of you who have asked about how she was doing, your words and thoughts meant and mean a lot. Thank you.

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    I am so sorry for your loss. :[ You are right, though: better to be where she is now than a wretched “facility.”

    hang in there, love.
