|Susan Kelleher knows what it is to lose the undemanding friend of a
lifetime. With the understanding of this experience and the knowledge of
so many others, she presents us with a wonderfully lyrical look at the
death of a family pet. She has given us the very real sense of the transition
that takes us and our companions to a place and time beyond the moment
of passing to offer us the promise of peace, acceptance, and tranquility.
|Susan's is a story of the sadness of loss and the poignant acceptance
of the peace that comes with the knowledge that such a loss leads us to
another plane of reality. In this short, real celebration of life, Susan
affirms the richness of the lives we live with our pets and shows us the
rewards that remain for those of us who have the courage to look beyond
the loss and see the promise of life.
