At almost 9 years old, Kuna began failing in January 2007. Diagnostic tests were inconclusive until she had an ultrasound on February 6, 2007. That day we got the devastating news that she had advanced cancer in multiple organs.
On February 23, 2007, Kuna ate pizza and cookies. We cuddled together all morning. That afternoon, I hugged our sweet girl Kuna as she went to Rainbow Bridge. She sleeps with the angels now.
But if you could...do you think you would
Trade in all the pain and suffering?
Oh, but then you'd miss
The beauty of the light upon this earth
And the sweetness of the leaving.
Calling all angels, Calling all angels...
