Remembering Sonoma

Sooner than we thought, it's time to say good-bye.

Sonoma died of poison on Palm Sunday. She whispered farewell in a dream, dreamt by my Dad in Los Angeles. At the time we didn't understand the dream's significance, but now we do. We were far away, but Sonoma found us.

Her body was discovered on Easter and she was buried on the lawn of Dos Palapas, our home on Roatan for the last two-and-a-half years and the next four weeks. We will be returning to the United States for good, our island adventure ending.

The good, the bad, and sadly the tragic. Time to say good-bye, and leave a little piece of our hearts behind.

  6. Hey Guys,
    I know it's a blow that has to end a tough month. You can say things happen for a reason but I can't think of one for this. Dogs become members of the family and we must grieve for them as well. We all look forward to seeing you more often.

  7. Mike and Alecia- All of us(especially Nick and Alex)were upset at the news of Sonoma. She was a great dog and will be missed by everyone. We are wishing you guys lots of strength for the move from Roatan and hope you can visit when you come by CT this summer. Peter and Grace
