Farewell Kena

In May, i met and photographed Kena (the blind and deaf, 16-year-old Min Pin) and her momma.

Sadly, Kena passed away yesterday with her momma by her side. what a special little soul she was. she had a way of drawing in anyone who met her, including myself and this group of school children from the day of our shoot. it was one of my favourite life moments ever.  I felt fortunate to have been there to capture it.

Thank you Kena for making many lives that much brighter while you were here.

Sending huge love out to you Jo. xo

Please feel free to leave your condolences in the comments below for Kena’s momma.

    What a beautiful tribute, Jazz, for both you and Kena. You know how my heart aches for you but remember the wonderful life you gave her. To your friend Marcia this is lovely work and something Jazz (or Jo if you prefer) will cherish forever.

    Jo, it is obvious from the photos how much you and Kena meant to each other. The black and white pic spoke volumes…
    We don’t lose our pets when they go to the bridge, they are still in our hearts and minds..til you meet again.

    My heart goes out to you. There is no replacement for those who we have loved so much that are not with us anymore to love us back. But in our hearts we feel them and the memories we have come back to life. Until the day we are together once again they lay in God’s lap whole and happily waiting for our return.

    Many thanks for your condolences and thank you Marcia for these wonderful photos of Kena.

    I’m still missing her everyday and routines are never the same. I hope I see her again someday.

    Many thanks for your condolences. I still miss her everyday and hope to be reunited with her someday. Right now, I’m sure that she is bugging her “brother”, my Golden, Tuck up there.
