This letter is intended mainly for the person responsible for taking the life of one of our family members, Max.
On Sunday, Sept. 13, at 10 to 10:30 p.m., you struck our family pet with your car and killed him on 59th Avenue, up from Grant Street.
He was a 10-year-old, 20-pound purebred Manx, who has been a part of our family for more than eight years.
This has caused a lot of grief to our family.
Max was very much loved by us, due to his strange behaviour. Max acted more like a human being with his weird sounds, his odd looks, the big round eyes and long rabbit-like legs.
Max was a joy to watch and was the most affectionate pet we ever had.
Max has been put to rest in his favourite spot at the family home.
He will be missed dearly.
The least you could have done was to put him to the side of the walkway instead of leaving him on the road.
He did not deserve to die like that.
This is a reminder to all people who race through quiet neighbourhoods with no regard to any living being, killing a small pet and think nothing of it.
Maybe people should pay more attention when they are driving, and remember that the animal they hit means a lot to someone.
If you have any regret for what you have done, and want to let me know you are sorry, call me at 403-396-2454.
