I remember holding you one last time,holding on for the final time that I would be able to do so in this world. I wish I could have been a better Mom and told you to run for the Bridge, but Gracie my heart broke having to make the choice to end the suffering I knew you were going through. I could not let you go any further, your little body just couldn't bear much more. Even though I tried, tried to reassure you, it all happened so quickly and you went quietly, gently, softly and jumped from my arms to the beautiful meadows full of catnip and butterflies. I know you are in a happy place with your sister Abby and your natural Mom and siblings.
There is a void here in this house since you flew away and it cannot be filled as our hearts have a Grace sized hole in them. One day when things are not as painful as they are now I hope that I can find the joy I once had for you while you were here. You were a joy Grace and I am so very grateful you kept trying so hard that day at the ACA and won my heart. You filled a broken heart that day and brought it so much love. I still hold all that love and I always will. So go give your sister Abby a head bumpie for me and I promise to see you both one day when your purrs will fill my ears with joy again.
