One of our family members died this week; our friend Roland. Roland was a rescue and joined our household twelve years ago. He was fifteen years old at his time of passing.

Roland joins Ninja, Zoe, Bonzo, Casey and others in our family that proceeded him. I think he will be on that special couch in a good place with our other friends, looking out the window, waiting for us to join him, one by one. He will be missed.
