Update Regarding RushIsRot

Posted by his son earlier this morning:

This is Tom, Newton's son. My father passed this morning at 5:05 AM. I wanted to thank everyone for their well wishes. You all kept my father entertained to the very end. He was on Facebook until late Sunday night, then just got very tired and went to sleep. He woke up a few times but was less and less coherent until he finally went to sleep around 10:30 AM on Monday. He never woke back up and passed quietly just like he wanted. One of the last things I remember him saying was "Let me see what eulogies my friends wrote" as he smiled, grabbed his computer and logged on to his account...His online accounts on Facebook and on DU were his lifelines to the outside world and you were all his family. Thank you.




He will be greatly missed.

95. Rotten Cat is feral.

He will not be caught. He gave Newton his allegiance, on his own terms.

He's a beautiful orange tabby. I'll be watching out for him.

98. Yeah, I know Boehner is feral

And having been friended by many cats in my life, when I said "his cat" I did not mean to imply ownership. Thanks for keeping an eye out for him.

We tell folks our cat is the owner of the house, but we're on the deed for legal purposes only.

And, Newton changed RC's name to BeelzeeBoehner, to honor his devilish ways.

(My cats have always "owned" me...)

I am so glad he was coherent in his last days and even hours, so that he could appreciate all the love and support coming from his friends and family. It's a good way to go, if you have to go. And hopefully he was not in pain and was OK with the end of his life...my Mom really struggled with that and it made it harder.

Take care and accept my most sincere condolences.



RIP Newton!
