Yesterday we said goodbye to a very dear member of the Atlantic Cat Hospital Team, Bennie. It was sudden and unexpected which makes it all that much harder to accept.
Bennie came to the hospital many years ago in desparate need and terrible physical shape. Through endless hours, kindness, love and compassion, Gina nursed him back to health and they formed an inseparable bond. This happened before “my watch” but the result was there for all to see every day.
Bennie was a special boy, an exquistively sensitive soul, who’s eyes could melt your heart.
This is such a hard post to write. There is so much more that I should say, but honestly can’t. A day does not bring enough distance. I don’t know if I will ever be able to do him justice.
As Rhonda, our office manager, has so aptly reminded us, Dr. Seuss says it best, “… don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened….”
