Tribute to Chatham

Our friend Chatham ran to the Rainbow Bridge today at 4:30. He just recently celebrated his 20th birthday. Please think about his Cat Couch, Dad, Twin Girls & Salem as they miss Chatham.

He is Gone

You can shed tears that he is gone, Or you can smile because he lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
Or you can be full of the love that you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he is gone,
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


We will miss you Chatham. Meet you again when our time to cross the Rainbow Bridge comes...
