Your portraits and photos of her are beautiful....
I work at a Butterfly Conservatory in So.Deerfield Mass. and we have a variety of exotic pets and everytime we have lost one there is a lot of sadness.We care for them,show them and love them as much as our own,so it is very difficult to go through loosing them.....
Take care and there is always the memories and the things we have shared with our beloved pets...
I sincerely feel your lost...
