    Oh, Gin, that breaks my heart. He is so handsome in that photo. I know what a huge place a loving pet leaves when they pass on. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Hugs,

    Oh Gin, it is so sad to hear of Simon's passing. One look at his picture suggests a special personality; I'm sure his absence leaves a big hole at your house. Six years is a lot of memories. Hugs to you and his little cage mate.

    Sorry for your loss Gin. Pets are really great companions for us and we get attached to them very much. I remember losing my dog a couple of years ago and it was really difficult after having him for 12 years. Stay strong!

    Sorry Gin. It's always so sad when we lose a family member. Some think that they are just pets, but they are so much more to those of us whose lives they have enriched.!
