So very sorry, Donald.  Rest well, sweet girl!

I'm so sorry, Donald. They leave such empty spaces in our lives when they've gone.

I am sorry for your loss. Fly was very fortunate to have landed in your household. I treasure having met her at the Bluegrass, and watching her and my Celt flirt for just a brief moment in the sun.

Sorry for your loss of Fly, Donald.  I know you two shared a lot, which I hope you'll write more about.  Treasure your memories.

I'm so sorry, Donald. I enjoyed meeting Fly in person, and also reading of your and her adventures together. She was quite a character...
