{short description of image}

"Just after 6am this morning, wrapped in a warm blanket - and endless love and gratitude - as Kalu and I laid beside her, Pinuki took her last breath...and a piece of my heart that became hers the moment I saw her."

Pinuki, My Angel, We Have A Secret

We have a secret, you and I,
That no one else shall know,
For who but I can see you lie,
Each night, in fireglow?

And who but I can reach my hand
Before we go to bed,
And feel the living warmth of you
And touch your silken head?

And only I walk woodland paths,
And see, ahead of me,
Your small form racing with the wind,
So young again, and free.

And only I can see you swim
In every brook I pass...
And, when I call, no one but I
Can see the bending grass.

After a heroic battle that seemed as though it would last forever with endless rallies, Pinuki finally succumbed to whatever her mysterious ailment was. No one could have done more or tried harder to save this little girl's life, to find out what was wrong. And despite accumulating $35K in debt, we still don't know. She leaves Ileane deeply, deeply grieving and her friends with her.
