Thank You

one of my favorite

photos
from 1999

my hooking/stitching chair
was across the room from him
this is how
he would get my attention
to get up and play

it always worked

Thank you to everyone
who commented
emailed
and sent cards

your kind
thoughts and prayers
are most appreciated

Every day brings more smiles
than tears
with the good memories
of my life with Chester

Olivia is having a rough time
she is looking for him
everywhere
spending much more time
at my side

her new nickname
is
Lonely Girl

as she lets me know
whenever I come home
whether I'm gone
15 minutes
or 9 hours...

in time
we will have a
new friend
~

That is a sweet picture of Chester.
Black was like that when we had to put our old guy down. He was lost for awhile, so I got all his attention.

Hey Kelley Girl. Cool photo of Chester. He was quite the character, wasn't he.

Still praying for a healing heart for you.

The moment I opened your blog, this evening, I started to cry for you and Olivia. Chester was a beloved boy.................

He was a "one-in-a-million-cat".

What a wonderful picture of Chester. He was such a beautiful and unique cat and will live in your heart forever. As each day becomes a little less painful, Olivia and you must still feel a bit lost. How are YOU coping, Kelley?
