Dear John Peter, R.I.P.

We got a phone call this morning that John Peter passed away  last night. His sickness intensified, they said.
In our blog from January 2 you can read how he came into Amecet and in the blog of February 9 you can read about the difficult decision we took, that we brought him back home. John Peter cried so much that he wanted to go home, to his grandmother. In the beginning we thought, we have to give him time, he will get used to the life in Amecet and he will start eating better. But he did not, he was miserable and didn't like anybody, even the children. He was not getter any better, so we felt that we should bring him back to his grandmother, maybe he is beyond help than it is better to be with his own people, during his last days.
I felt sad when I heard the news, but I felt also a relief that we made the good decision, he has been with his own people and now he has peace. We could not help him anymore, but now he has no more pain and no more sickness. I know he is smiling now...............
