I got a text from Ed Gulley today.
Yesterday he came to take Deb’s body. We put her in his truck and he drove with her back to his farm. I know lots of farmers have a place they put their dead animals. I assumed a pile someplace back in the woods.
But Ed texted: Not that it matters, but thought you’d like to know that we bury all our animals and I put Deb next to the bear figuring their spirits have crossed before.
Oh it matters, I wrote back, Thank you, Thank you.

Wonderful and it does matter. This brought tears to my eyes.
Ed sounds like a mystic and a very good man.
How very thoughtful.
Marie, I saw that you helped load Deb. I am a lot like you, as I would have been right there, doing the same thing. You always pitch in, without hesitation, to help where it’s needed. And yes, I cried a tear when I read that Ed buried her. Love your posts. Keep on!
Oh, indeed, it matters. Bless Ed for showing Deb the dignity all animals deserve. Perfect place for her.
Maria, I weep in joy. It matters, it truly does matter. Ed Gulley paid a tribute to both the bear and Deb. It was such a right thing to do to bury them next to each other. Crossed they have, many times.
That is so very beautiful, Maria! Thank you immensely for sharing.
And yes, it matters tremendously!
From Fran again.
I am so glad to hear this too! Thanks for sharing this news.
