Joyce's Horse

My last post was a rather sad and shocking thing I know.
Who expects to know such turmoil and be privy to all the details.
My entire weekend at work,has been filled with speculations,innuendo and sadness.
First for the victims and next for the slayer.God only knows what drives a man to be so low and angry that he could end not only his own life but his wife too.
Nobody should be shot in their sleep by the man who claims to love you,how selfish!!!!!on his part..
Yesterday I saw Walt,the maintenance man.Being not sure what to say to him,I simple said "Walter how is it going?" he told me he spent several days crying and still can not understand that Joyce is really dead.
You know this one action of desperation has turned many peoples lives into pain.
My patient Alice,whose family has been with her every day,morning until night,holds her stuffed animal Joyce gave and just says "why?"and cries
We as the staff had come to know Joyce and her poodle coco and could not believe we will never see either of them again.How some one so full of life can be no more is hard to understand.
One day here the next day gone.
Yesterday I read in the paper that her horse Picaro is still alive and at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in Grafton.He has lost some skull fragments and his right eye had to be removed and the poor thing is in a traumatic state.
Horses are very sensitive creatures and they feel deeply.
If any one is interested and wants to send money to assist in this poor animals medical fees donations may be made to:

Office of Development and Alumni Relations
Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University
200 Westboro Road
North Grafton,Ma.01536

please make checks payable to:

Trustees of Tufts College

to give on line visit:

I plan on sending a check myself and will do it today.Not only did Joyce not deserve what happened to her neither did her beloved horse of 22 years.

I can tell you the horse community is a close knit group and will jump in with offers to help this poor animal doing all they can for him but your help will be greatly appreciated and if he makes it,and things look good so far,this will be Joyce's legacy of love.
This beautiful and proud stallion.
