  • Today we lost our beloved "buddy boy" Geo. While I want to share with you all the details of his life, (how wonderful he was), I'm not ready to type today. In time I'll give a proper eulogy and you can learn about him then. Our hearts are broken and for now we take time to grieve for our precious fur baby. πŸ’”
Thx @laf.live for angel picture.
