Goodbye to Homer

1

Our hearts go out to Connie Bartels for the loss of her beloved Homer, longtime friend and loyal companion. He will be missed.

“Sunday when we rode while I was taking his tack off I was talking to him telling him what a good boy he is and what a good ride we had. Then I hugged him tightly as I always do….he knew me, and he liked me a lot. To think that I will never ride him again is heart wrenching to me. He was my good friend and buddy…..and I would never find another Homer. I am very sad today, but I am thankful for the many years we were friends. Only mule people would understand this.”

    I would like to hear from anyone who has lost a beloved mule and how they dealt with the grief. As a Christian I know that there are many trials and tribulations in this life and one of them is the loss of someone we love. That love can be for a pet. I know God will help me deal with this loss but right now my tears continue to flow. At my age I doubt whether I could ever find another mule like I had for 14 years. He was the best, and I thank God that he was my good friend for all that time. I thank Meredith for her caring , comforting words at this sad time in my life.
