From Suz: Her Service To Pelusa

Pelusa at La Plata ZooFrom Suz-

“When I accepted the call to come to Argentina and be of service to Pelusa, I knew my time here could go either way – I told everyone that I would come back with either my heart exploded or my heart shattered, but either way my heart would never be the same. My goal here was simple – to love her with all of my being, to help her in every way I could.

It’s been a crazy eight weeks. I think I’ve worked harder than I ever have in my life, and I opened my heart to her and loved and supported her with everything I had. She drifted quietly from this world late last night, surrounded by all who loved and knew her. She is finally at peace, without pain, and at rest. I will be eternally grateful to have known her, adored her, fussed over her, and honored her in death. I will be coming home with both my heart exploded, and with my heart broken.”

    Dear Suz, what an extraordinary gift you gave Pelusa. No doubt your heart is shattered. Those of us who did not even get to know her are heartbroken, I cannot imagine your loss and those of her caretakers. The world just seems a little empty today… something is missing. I believe her spirit is doing just fine now though and she had many angels helping her pass over. She has left that beautiful broken down body behind. God’s speed as you return home. I feel I can speak for many when I say that we all love you so much. Our arms are wrapped around you. Sending you positive energy and strength on your journey.
