And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.
BG, short for Boy George (given that name by his Aunties Eunice and Rosalie because of the beauty mark on his nose) came to us when he was a little over a year old. We brought him down from a bed and breakfast in Big Bear, CA. We just knew he would be a cat that we could wear and it turned out just so. He was the most loving kitty we have ever known. Early in the 1990's he had to have major surgery and didn't even hold that against us. He loved to run down the hallway, jump onto the tile table in front of the window and come to a screeching halt especially in the early evening when he was younger. We called it the "evening crazies." When he was diagnosed with early renal failure in March 2000, he had to be given fluid subcutaneously every day and he endured those needle sticks like the little trooper he was. Then he would come right back onto my lap so we could take a nap together. He is still with us as when he went to the Bridge, he was cremated and is at home.
06/28/2001 - It's been a year since BG left,
And in our hearts we're still bereft. Such a gentle soul, so loving and sweet, Held fast in our hearts 'till next we meet.
He waits for us at Rainbows end
And there we'll see our special friend. 3-29-05: You are still very much a part of our hearts, BG. We love you and think of you as our special angel always. 4/14/07: Thank you for coming to visit in my dreams and for gently letting us know that your sweet spirit is still with us by wending your way through the windchimes. We'll be together again at the Bridge, and will never be parted. We love you so much. 6/28/07 -It has been 7 long years since you crossed the Bridge, and you are missed every day. Tashi and Katy are with us, the kitties you led us to at the shelter in July 2000, the ones who really needed us. We love them so much, but want you to know that you are tucked away in a very special place in our hearts until we meet you again at the Bridge, never to be parted. Your loving moms. 3/25/08 - We know you had a glorious Easter there, filled with beauty. You are still so very much missed. Please watch over us, and Tashi and Katy too. We love you so much.

He needs you to take care of him and be his buddy for at least a while. You are so loving and we know that Beau is happy, healthy, and free from pain.
