Dear class – We said goodbye to sweet Cooper Sunday afternoon. It happened very quickly. I so appreciate your kind comments and messages this past few days. I look forward to our last few weeks together exploring reflective practice, compassion and the heart.

    @michael I am so sorry for your loss. Pets add so much to our lives. I truly believe they help bring out the best in us. Thank you for sharing Cooper with all of us throughout your teaching in this class! I loved seeing his picture and hearing stories about him.

    @michael – So sorry to see this post as I scan through Feedly 🙁 I am sorry for Cooper’s loss to you and your family. May you celebrate your lives together as you mourn his passing. You were there in his last days to make him feel loved.

    Everyone – I so appreciate your words at this time. I did want to be as transparent as possible because life for all of us does not happen in a vacuum. It’s been a hard week but your thoughts as well as those of friends here and virtually have been so helpful.

    Cooper looks so handsome and wise in that photo:) He is lucky to have shared a lifetime of joy, curiosity, play and outdoor beauty with his family. I am so sorry for your loss, but so grateful you were able to spend some dedicated time with him in the snow.

    Nothing but good thoughts and wishes for healing!
