Good bye Beautiful Luca



I just got the news this morning that our moderator Jacqui had to let her Luca go to the bridge back on September 17th. Luca was 14 ˝ years old and it was her time to go. Jacque was strong enough to stay by Luca’s side while she went to sleep for the last time.

From a poem Jacqui posted back in 2003 by Crystal Ward Kent;
Quote:
Quote: But give them we must for it is all they ask in return. When the time comes, and the road curves ahead to a place we cannot see, we give one final gift and let them run on ahead - young and whole once more.
"Godspeed, good friend," we say, until our journey comes full circle and our paths cross again.
Godspeed to you sweet Luca!

Dalton surly will miss his girlfriend from across the pond. Our thoughts are with you and G, Jacqui!

Re: Good bye Beautiful Luca

I am sorry to hear about Luca's passing. May your heart heal from the pain of your loss quickly. You gave her a great gift in the end, I know one that was hard for you. She is young and happy and waiting for you I'm sure with friends. Run free sweet Luca! At 14 1/2, you had good run!

Jacqui, I am sorry for your loss of Luca. 14 1/2 is really amazing, but still not enough time.
