I was glad that February 11th was beautiful sunny and warm.
I spend all afternoon outside with Gracie and the cats.
Gracie Grace I called.
She jumped down and I gave her a final ear scritch. Knowing in my heart I was saying my farewells. Letting go is never simple. How can it be that one moment you're here and then the next you're not? My heart is filled with emptiness. Abby first, Gracie next. Perhaps there is some synchronicity in Abby joining our family in June of 2005 and Gracie arriving in July of 2005, Abby and Gracie came basically together and left us as they came.
Gracie I will miss my little cashmere kitty, my friend who played whap the pen off the desk, who meowed every time I called her Gracie Grace. My sweet quiet girl with the paws of a herd of buffaloes who enjoyed tormenting her orange brother and was her Daddy's baby girl. We will always miss you in our hearts and one day Gracie Grace we will see you again. I promise. You wait with Abby in that meadow and watch for us. I'll be there. Looking for you and Abby.
