Sir Mortimer, distinguished member of the White Westie Club, peacefully crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. He was 12+ years young. He will be deeply missed by many friends in addition to his mom & dad, Sid Korpi and Anthony Kaczor. In his last hours, Mr. Mortimer was breathing heavily with intense physical pain from a severe eye infection; yet his biggest concern was for his devoted human mom, who is in the process of publishing a beautiful book she's written, titled "Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss" (Healey House Press).
Mortimer has left us physically, but we very much feel his strong presence as he beams love to the other two Westies in the family (Keely & Blanche), the cats (Giles & Xander), and the finches (Atticus & Scout). He's in a place of indescribable joy now, completely free of pain, romping like a puppy with Ludwig & Tuppence. Blessed be, Mortimer. We will always love you.
