To Fans and Friends of the Red Rocket Report:
I apologize for my long hiatus from the Red Rocket Report but I have been in mourning. On Sunday, August 30 I lost my sweet, beloved Emma. As you all know from reading previous posts she was suffering from lymphoma which attacked without warning, quickly and aggressively. On Saturday, August 29 she could barely move and was taken to the veterinary emergency clinic for a blood transfusion. Sadly, just prior to the transfusion she developed a heart arrythmia which did not resolve and by Sunday morning we knew that her time had come. Bless Dr. Olson, he came to the house so she could die in my arms in our bed. Penny from Pet Angel Memorial Center also gave up her Sunday afternoon to come to the house and collect Emma. She, Shelly and Ronda arranged a beautiful visitation and have helped all of us work through our grief. The house is so quiet without her and her loyalty and constancy are deeply missed.
