Today my Gracie cat left on her journey across the Rainbow Bridge.

It was a peaceful passage, with a wonderful Vet who gently released Gracie from her pain. The vet helped immensely by reassuring my spouse and I that we could take pride in the loving care we've given Gracie through the years, and it was the right thing to do, letting her go. We both cried a bunch of tears, and held onto her till the very end. Sure do miss that sweet little girl, and I'm still struggling with the tears, but time will ease the pain, I know, and we will always cherish the memories she has left us.

I cannot thank enough all of you who have sent messages of comfort, encouragement and sympathy. I know many of you have been through this particular loss, and I am so grateful that you've shared your experiences with words that have uplifted my spirit and made this tough time easier to bear.

Many of you doubtless know about Paws of Remembrance, but I have just found out about it. It's a lovely box with Gracie's front paws imprinted on a surface (plaster of Paris, I think), and below them a tuft of her hair, both inside a frame with an elegant cover. The Rainbow Bridge poem is included, and there's a place for her photo. It's such a special memorial for her, and one I'll always treasure. Thought I'd mention it for those who may not be familiar with it.

It is a joy to be a part of this awesome DU family. Again, thanks and many, many blessings!

2. hugs and tears

They sure leave a big hole in our hearts. You gave Gracie lots of love and care and did what was right for the three of you.I have stayed with my animals when it was time for them to go ahead of me. Good for you. Those tears are liquid love.



We really need a kitty smilie!
