RIP.
Jay I dont mean to sound harsh but dont let it get you down completly.
I mean, you do some wonderful work mate.
The time she spent with you was properly the best time in her life.
You do such amazing things for animals.
Dont think for one minute its your fault or anything.
Its one of them things.
You done everything you can mate.
Keep up your amazing work!

You thought about getting a new one?
I know its abit sudden.
But by getting a new one or somthing to sort of replace her might settle your missus down a little.
By taking her mind off things.
Ovbiously she will always be in both of your hearts.
Just a thought mate.

I am only one who found the title a little disturbing?

"Our cumberland turtle has died, well gutted"
