Goodbye My Little Lester

I just can't bring myself to write about Little Lester's last day and his goodbye smile for me. Just wanted you to know Lester passed away yesterday evening peacefully. I never knew I could have my heart wrapped up so much in one tiny little goat. I will be back in a few days with his story. Goodbye my sweet little one.

Finally I have found your blog again. My computer would never let me open your page. Then I had my computer worked on, and I lost everything, but now at least I can get on your site again!

I've been reading about the critters and catching up. Sounds like you are keeping busy as usual! I'm so sorry to hear of Little Lester. He is so cute!! How sad that he passed away. (((Hugs)))

I'm so sorry, Peggy! You are such a wonderful loving person I just know this is more than sad for you.

Your song is perfect.

Little Lester probaly had the best life of any little goat in the world today. He was happy and you were perfect for him.

You're a good steward and I'm sorry Lester has gone on before. I truly believe our beloved animals will greet us in heaven. God loves them too and He loves it when we love them and tend to them with a gentle heart.
