We Brought Grace Home

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.

  11. Such a great tribute. It will never be the same and no other kitty can take her place, but you did the best thing you could have by opening your heart and home to Gracie. Purrs and kitty kisses.

  14. We will be facing this in a few days when Nigel comes home for the final time. So painful. Gracie was very much loved, and whether you have to make a decision in the end or the decision is not up to you, it hurts just the same.
