Aby-a-Day – June 29: Remembering Gun-Hee (Friday Flashback)

Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the end of Gun-Hee’s battle with FIP. Even though we have Jacoby, his half brother, I still miss that little boy.

One of the last outings we took was on June 11; we went to Harvard Yard. He posed with John Harvard.

I didn’t notice it at the time, but he was already starting to show signs of the disease.

I still think about him every day. Having Jacoby is a bit like having a part of Gun-Hee back, but…

…it’s still not the same. Gun-Hee always seemed a little sad, like he knew he’d have to leave sooner than he should.

There is some good news, though: Yesterday, at the Winn Foundation Symposium at the CFA Annual Meeting, Steve Dale announced that the Winn Foundation had just that day been given a cheque for $10,000 expressly for FIP research (as a donation to their Bria Fund)! What great news!
