Anyway, any purrs and prayers of comfort you can spare would be greatly
appreciated.
Sam


We'll be delighted to. I'll get the furkids revved up this morning.

Purrs and prayers are on their way for you and for Ramona and her
sister. It's been a rough year for all of you and my heart goes out
to you. Take care - - we care.

I'm so very sorry for your wife's loss, Sam. Please give Ramona our purrs
and most sincere condolences.

Last night, my dear wife's Mom passed away. She had had Alzheimer's for
about 5 years and had been slowly going downhill. In some ways it was a
relief that she was out of her suffering, but it's always hard to "let Mom
go". Her Dad had passed away last April so it was just her Mom.

Ramona (DW) had been going down for two months 3 times a year to give her
older sister some respite from tending to their mother (we live in

Seattle,
WA, USA - northwest corner of the "lower 48") and her parents live in
Alabama (Southeast US). She's been doing this for about 4 years now, and
had been down staying with her Mom for almost a month this trip.
Fortunately, she was there during Mom's "final moments". When her Dad
passed away, she was here (Seattle) so she didn't really get to "say
goodbye" in quite the same way.

Anyway, any purrs and prayers of comfort you can spare would be greatly
appreciated.
Sam

I'm sorry Sam, you've had a sad enough year already. My condolences to you.

Sam, As I was reading your post, one of my cats, Kieri, jumped on my lap,
and looked at the computer monitor. She turned around, started purring
furiously, and put her paws around my neck. She stayed like that for about
a minute, and got down. She says she and the rest of my crew send mega purrs
and kitty hugs to you and Ramona, and that we will keep you in our thoughts.

Take care,
Patti and crew

New Zealand purrs on the way Sam, what a sad year for your family. It
is almost a year since my sister died and I still miss not being able to
tell her things - particularly when something funny happens with the
kitties.

Purrs and healing thoughts for you, your wife and her family. It may be
a relief, but it still hurts. I'm so sorry for you all.
