I just talked to Luce. Maddy is being cremated today, wrapped
lovingly in an extra-luxurious sheet from a friend.
Unfortunately, Emily, her beloved dog, crashed overnight, and her vet
thinks--in a stunning and sad irony--that she has leukemia. Emily
has now gone to join Maddy.
We can all be grateful that Emily hung on until now, as
Maddy many times said she could not bear the thought of
losing her. Maddy never had to face that. For Emily's part
it almost seems that once she sensed Maddy was no longer
here, she left, too.
