Another Angel Has Flown

Postby Natty » Wed Mar 12, 2014 7:46 pm

Good night all

I haven't been posting much in the last few months but always checking in from time to time and have you all in my thoughts and prayers everyday. This morning my best friend forever went to be with the other angels.

I at peace that he's at peace and the fact that we've spent lots of time together over the last 3 months..I will always love him and miss him. Let me say here to all..thank you for the many times I've turned to you for help or answers throughout his 4yr 3 month journey..your knowledge was more than I could express in words.

I will be still popping in from time to time..I promise :cry:
