Emma, John, Ping-Ming, Kiki & of course our beloved Karnie
Dearest Dr Cameron,
I just wanted to thank you for coming out on Sunday to help Karnie travel safely to the Rainbow Bridge.
John & I don’t have children together & we considered Karnie our first child. Whilst we did our best to be as strong as we could on the day, I can’t even begin to articulate the level of grief that we went through on Sunday & continue to go through in her absence. I’ve lost many dear people & animals in the past, but nothing has compared to this level of grief.
We are both still feeling moments of guilt for having Karnie put down. We still wonder if it was the right thing to do. I’ve had to euthanase a pet before & the decision was very clear to me, but this time it wasn’t, not even in the slightest.
The way you handled the entire process was of great comfort to all of us, Karnie included. As you were aware, I was seriously concerned that Karnie’s high level of anxiety around strangers would make the process a stressful one for her & a devastating memory for us. I needn’t be worried however as your demeanour & the way in which you handled the entire process was very comforting & kind. I truly believe you have been placed on this earth to bring comfort to many & I am forever grateful to you that you made this historic & most painful moment in our lives that little bit easier. Thank you from the deepest depth of my heart.
Sincerest respect & gratitude to you Sir.
