Jun 21, 2016 Dear friends,
Thank you for your prayers and good wishes for my beautiful friend Leo, a Canadian golden retriever who passed away yesterday.
My fifteen years with this elegant, gentle creature has taught me more lessons than anything I have learned through music.
These years have been my happiest, most glorious and most healing ones, mostly because of Leo’s calming presence in a sometimes chaotic world.
I will miss him terribly. Those who have bonded with an animal know what I feel, it’s a different kind of loss than losing a human.
Leo’s other parents, Terry and Joan Feller, helped me record a new album this last year, by caring for Leo when I needed to be out of town.
Thank you to them for their unflinching love and care which made life with Leo possible. Thank you also to the many caregivers and friends who tended to Leo’s needs over the years, especially to Ron Swallow, Goldunn Kennels and to all the beautiful ones who freely gave Leo their love.
