From yesterday, Nov 30, 2017:
Hello everyone, I’m Rudi and Dan’s friend, Mary. They asked me to let you know that their beloved Fernando is at peace. He gained his wings just a bit ago while wrapped in the love of his mom and dad. He was happy, but his brave little heart had given all it could.
Dan and Rudi are understandably devastated, so they will need time to grieve. Please hold them in your hearts and when they are ready, they will tell you more.
Fernando, you captured our hearts with your charming ways and your engaging smile. Thank you for brightening our days, and know that you are forever a part of us.
Run free, Nando. I’m sure you and Harley are getting acquainted now, and I have no doubt you are already the best of friends.
