Our sweet Mr. Frodo has boarded a grey ship and sailed into the west, to Rainbow Bridge. He passed away very peacefully on October 23rd, a little after 6pm in the evening. He had been struggling with the effects of the end stages of kidney disease, and it was clearly time. Many, many thanks to our vet, Dr. Jane Berg, who came by on rather short notice to help ease Frodo’s passage so he could continue his journey beyond this life.
We played “Last Goodbye”, sung by Billy Boyd for the credits of the last episode of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” (“Battle of the Five Armies”)…the lyrics were eerily appropriate. Kevin and I were both right there with him to say our last goodbyes and his Grammy, Raxl, and Sookie were near by as he drifted off to sleep.
Another reason for the general appropriateness of having a song from “The Hobbit” for Frodo’s passing is tied in with Frodo’s links with Peter Jackson’s series “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”…
