He kept an eye on the kids, and whenever we asked him where the kids were, he would take us to them. He would round up the chickens for us when they were out and scrounging. He loved riding in the truck with my husband and he would stick almost his whole body out the window, not just his head.
Whenever you felt sad or down, he would come and lay his head on your lap or tuck his head under your arm for a cuddle.
We know we were lucky to have him for 15 years, but it still felt too soon to say goodbye.
But once again he helped us all. With some pretty major stuff happening in our lives right now, he helped us put things in perspective and helped us grieve.
We will miss him always and never forget him.
