Grendl by SusanMorris / Sue

Grendl wandered from or was taken from our front porch on August 16, 2005.
We spent the next six months searching for him, to no avail.
He was 14 1/2 and in very poor health. He never wandered from home, but his mental faculties were failing.
In the absence of real closure, we’ve chosen to believe he knew his time was near and made a heroic effort to let go privately. It was not what we wanted…we wanted him to forever rest with us.
We leave the porch light on for him, and our hearts still hurt every day.


Loyaulte me lie, Grendl,
