Goodbye, Mama (October 14, 1914 - September 9, 2007)

Mama lost her battle with cancer today. We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and purrayers.... We probably won't be online very much for a while with everything that has been happening.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a 1,000 winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled light
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there; I did not die.

Thank you dearest friends for loving me so very much and sending me your healing purrrrs and purayers. I have eaten my dinner and drank some water. Mommy puts me in my litterbox and I go pee, then I scratch the carpet and headbunk her. I purrr as she puts me back into the frying pan. I hope she still likes me after I put a hole in her thumb...she should be faster with that pill thing!
Love Peachy

BG--I am sorry about your mama. She had the same birthday as my Mommy (different year, of course). I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for visiting my blog. My frosty hearts are very good. You should get your mom to make you some!

Today was a purrrrfect day to spend snoozing in the frying pan sick bay. A nice soft autumn rain fell all day long while I dreamed of all my sweet kitty friends like you who came to help watch over me. It is not how long you live your life that is most important, but the quality of your days is what really matters.
