Tom, .......... hard to express my feelings for your loss. 'I am sorry' hardly seems adequate... but I am sorry.
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

Sorry for your loss of Patch. Of course Cheyenne could not anticipate a pal not being there, but is there for you. Patch is not suffering though.
