Well, can we say hello to a brand new Monday. For me, it is also a brand new world, sort of, now that Biggie's gone... except he isn't. I have pictures of him on the wall. He and Lily are the wallpaper on my phone and my computer, and he's going to stay there. I have a problem with people who lose a friend and then surgically removed as much evidence of that life because it makes them feel uncomfortable or makes them sad. So, Biggie may be gone, but he will always remain.
I'd like to thank everyone who commented or who sent me an email. Your condolences were all greatly appreciated. The outpouring of sympathy here and on Facebook took me completely by surprise and at times was a bit overwhelming.
On Friday morning, while I was waiting for Companions of Peace to arrive and take Biggie for his last ride, I saw the first bloom of the year on one of my rosebushes. I promptly dubbed it Biggie's Rose.
