Harv: Gone One Month

Dear Harv:

You've been gone one month. And I found this quote to express how I feel.

When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that, in truth, you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

--Khalil Gibran

So I must be grateful for every tear I have shed over you, because for every tear, you have given me many moments of joy. I hope your soul lives on, my beloved friend. You have given me more than I could have ever hoped for.

You were never my pet. You were and are my friend.

40 Winks for Harvey

In this 2005 picture, Harv takes one of his many daily naps.

Now cracks a noble heart. Good night sweet prince:
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
William Shakespeare

Harvey: My Amazing Cat Passes On

Harvey, my beloved pet of 17 years, died suddenly on May 13, 2007. He was full of sass and sparkle right up to the end. He went out on top!

I cannot thank him enough for all the years of faithful companionship he gave me. As long as I have life and breath and conciousness, I will remember you dear, dear friend. God sent you to me, and I send you back.

But if the while I think on thee, dear friend
All losses are restored and sorrows end.
William Shakespeare

Photoshop Fun: Harv With Beret

Harv never would have worn a beret -- without a little help from Photoshop.

Julius: A Black Beauty With a Huge Heart

Julius (1986??-2005) was a little guy with lots of class. We miss you always!

Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.

Mark Twain

Weep Not for the Memory

Sarah McLachlan's beautiful songs "Angel" and "I Will Remember You" mean so much to me right now.

In the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort there.
