Oh Robert I am so sad for you. You have such a big heart and I know you will 
use it again. 
I so hate the restrictions of $$'s - I know someone had a suggestion about 
house/petsitting - when you feel up to it maybe work on that - I know several 
who do this daily - 
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss Bob. I've followed your messages with hope and 
admiration for your efforts. Not everyone has such a big heart to love 
unconditionally, and you have been an inspiration. Take care.
