Remembering Kodi…


Just wanted to let you know that Buffett’s brother Kodi passed away yesterday.  It was Jerry’s birthday so we called to wish him a happy birthday only to find out that Kodi had died.  What a horrible way to spend your birthday.  We are sad but know that he is not suffering anymore.  We are also glad that we got to see him this last weekend, even if it meant Delaney was bit by the dog.  She is doing great now and is also sad because Kodi is gone.  Not really ready to go through this.

Our hearts go out to Jerry and Deb as he was a big part of their lives and they are really struggling with the loss.  

Buffy has not eaten at all today and has been really sad- could she possible know that he is gone?  Here is a photo of our sweet Kodi from his birthday this year.

    I am sorry to hear the sad news… I cannot even imagine losing a family member like that. He knows that he was loved and it sounds like he had a good life though. Our thoughts are with you all, especially Jerry and Deb.

    I’m sorry to hear that about the dog. You did tell us this weekend that he was not good but did not expect this news this fast. I’m sure Buffy senses the loss. Those dogs are very easy to love and I am sure there will be a lot of people that will miss Kodi. I am just glad that he is not in pain, that would be just terrible to live with. Love you and have you in my thoughts. Mom

    How sad and yes it is a terrible way to spend your birthday as Rob lost his dog on Father’s Day I was just grateful I had gotten a card and put Shannon’s paw print on it for Fathers Day but still stinks no matter what day it is. And yes I believe Buffett knows. I know the cats knew. Our thoughts are with the family for sure.
