for Stormie

Stormie is being helped to The Bridge today. All of us are heartbroken, but the fierce fight Stormie put up against cancer has been awesome and amazing.

Our bean has lost several precious kitties over time, three to particularly heart-breaking illnesses. Here is a poem that was sent to her when she lost Pluto in November, 2003, and which comforted her again in March, 2006, when Indy suddenly went to The Bridge:

"Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you ...
I loved you so -
'twas Heaven here with you."

– by Ilsa Paschal Richardson
We love you, Stormie, and we'll be praying and purring for your peaceful, painless trip to The Bridge. Please find Indy, Pluto, Stinky, and Friday for our bean and say "hello" to them for her. She still misses them all.

That is such a lovely tribute to Sweet Stormie!

There are a lot of eyes leaking in the Blogosphere today! Willow and I are so sad that Storm had to go to the Bridge but we are so glad that she isn't in pain anymore.
