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.
