We Said Goodbye

22 comments

… to our big beautiful Paco today. His illness caught up with him. We did not know it was going to be today that we said goodbye. And perhaps … actually most certainly that was for the best. We are blessed that we had him come into our lives. What a gentle soul. We will miss him terribly. I’m glad he arrived in my life when he did. He introduced me to the love of a donkey. And then he convinced us to bring three lovely jennies to be his pals.

  6. Hi Wendy and Ede,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Paco, it is so hard to lose such a wonderful friend.
    It was so nice to get to meet Paco and learn of his adventures through your writing, Wendy. Paco is lucky that he had you, and you, him. You enriched each other’s lives in ways beyond words. Life in the paddock will never be the same. With my sincere sympathies,

  8. Wendy, I am so very sorry for your families loss, I feel like it is my loss too 😢
    He will be missed. Did he die on his own or did the vet help? It would be nice to know he was in the presence of love when it happened but on the flip side going peacefully as he slept is good too. Hugs

    1. We did have the vet come to help him out of his suffering. And the jennies were able to stay with him all the time. If such a thing can be ‘right’ … it was.

  9. Oh Wendy, I’m so sorry to hear this sad news! He brought so much joy into your life as you did to his. It’s always so hard to say goodbye to a good friend…..even if it’s their time.
    Hugs

  10. I am so very sorry to learn that you have had to say goodbye to Paco. I never met him, but I have so often been uplifted as I read about him. I can only say that the bond he shared with you seemed to be one of those truly rare and special gifts. I hope you will find comfort in all your many wonderful memories of him.

    1. Thanks Barb. There was something about Paco’s eyes that just said ‘gentle’. And often made him look like he was smiling. xo
