Rest Well Pepper Girl

The sun is beginning to set, here in Mayberry. My eyes take in the beauty of the silhouette of the tree line against the evening sky. Though I admire the simple beauty, I am keenly aware that this particular sunset concludes Pepper’s last day on this earth. I’ll miss her more than I thought. She’s been gone two hours, now. It feels like forever. 
I’m sure she’s just beyond reach…beyond sight, riding the back roads with her daddy now. I don’t normally entertain sentimental imaginations about what happens to animals that die. I’m making an exception, today, for Pepper Girl. She was a wonderful friend for a dozen years.
