Brando, good ol handsome bubba...

My best Buddy... as these things go, you were a trooper until the very end. Tough guy, never once complained about anything and with a smile always in your big beautiful eyes. Even when you were feeling lousy, always ready to chase that crazy squirrel! HA! I loved you dearly. I know you're right here by my side even as I write this, but you are missed, ol bubba. I miss you....
"Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."
His passing was dignified and peaceful and full of all the grace becoming of an old gentleman. He left this world while at home, wrapped in my arms and nestled in his favorite bed, right next to my desk where he spent many nights snoring and relaxing after a long day of introspection and squirrel hunting.
As sad as I am for his loss, I feel so blessed to have had this profound yet simple spiritual teacher in my life for the past 11 years. It's amazing how I feel all that powerful love that he had, now glowing brightly inside me and emanating from my heart... the best gift imaginable from my bestest friend forever :)
