I am heartbroken for you Kristy, Trav, Mick & your families. To lose both Bud & Smithy so close together is both unbelievable & shattering. Smithy - I have such wonderful memories of all the wonderful times - we solved the whole worlds problems on our morning walks, planned many adventures including my wedding. There were so many fun times, particularly at Thurla St. where you & Bud welcomed into your family - for this I am forever grateful. Rest peacefully with Bud my beautiful friend.
