However, when I got back, I learned some bad news. Zelda, our beloved bunny, died while we were away.

It's not entirely unexpected, given that she is over 10 years old and has been sick for years. I had also noticed that she's been having even more trouble getting around lately.
Nonetheless, she had been our bunny since August 2004, when Dave moved to Illinois. She was also the sweetest, spunkiest bunny I've ever known, and I miss her so much already. I don't think it's sunk in yet that I'll never get to ruffle her soft fur again.
We've received a lot of really nice messages from people, which is really sweet. I miss my little bunny.
