This week has been a long, hard one for us . Tuesday night as I waited for the gnome to get home from bowling the phone rang and I saw it was my Mom's number calling. As I reached to answer, I said a quick prayer that she was okay (as loosing her is among my greatest fears). She was calling to tell me that my Uncle had a massive heart attack and was dead. It has come as a shock to us all. He was only 64 and there wasn't really any warning this was coming...but I am glad he went quickly and didn't linger on.

Last night was his wake. It wasn't easy but I am really glad I was able to go. It was good to see everyone even though it was for such a tragic occasion.

Today was a day that I had been dreading for a long time. My dearest friend is the world has gone to heaven to be an angel (next to the gnome of course).

Bootsie was 19 years old and was the best pet I could have ever asked for. She came to me when she was only a few weeks old because some sicko threw her in the snow bank and left her to die. I came across her and took her in. It was certainly their loss because she was a devoted and loving friend until the very end. Unfortunately, her health took a turn over the last few days and I couldn't let her suffer. I loved her way too much to see her continue, so today I took her to the vet and ended her pain.
Heaven has 2 more angels this week....and my heart is broken.
I love you Uncle John...and to my dear sweet Bootsie, I will think of you every day and love you forever. We will be together again one day, so wait for me in heaven my friend.
As always, to be continued.........................

Oh I am so sorry to read this... you and she were so lucky to have found each other and to have shared 19 years together! I am sorry to hear of the loss of your uncle as well.

Take care, I do hope things get brighter for you. RIP indeed.

I am so sorry for your loss(es).
64 seems terribly young to me. I am glad that your uncle didn't linger on, too.
19 years is a long time for a cat! How lucky you were to have your Bootsie.

I will not concur on it. I assume precise post. Expressly the title attracted me to be familiar with the unscathed story.
