Welcome to Calypso's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Calypso
We were in Germany,when she entered our life. We found her in a parking lot running around with a dozen other kittens. That was August of 1982. She was the only all black kitten in the group. She came to me and so began our journey thru life together. Calypso was chosen for her name and the vet said she was about 8 weeks old. We gave her June 5th as her birthday, which is also our daughter's birthday. Calypso traveled and lived all over the world as we were a Air Force family. She was a joy to us and stories of things she did would require a book be written. Calypso was never sick a day in her life. Calypso loved Christmas and as soon as the tree went up she would be under it. We called her our Christmas cat. This year we could tell it would be different as she was getting very thin and weak.Her vet said that her system was starting to shut down.The realization of no matter how much money one has or how much medical care is provided the aging process marches on. On Dec 20,1998 at 4:00PM she began that journey, we sat with her and told her it was alright,to just let go and we love her very much. Calypso passed on to Rainbow Bridge at 5:30PM On Dec 20th 1998 due to natural causes. So as I write this my tears are flowing freely and the sadness and emptiness of our home without her can not be expressed in words. DR Chance(her vet) said it best when he told me,she must of loved being a (our last name)to have stayed so long. A urn in the shape of a pyramid was shipped from the California to hold her cremains. In life she would sit on my computer desk. Calypso's urn sits on my desk. She is here with me and always will be. When God calls me home, I will be cremated and Calypso's cremains will be added to my urn.
Calypso will live on thru our memories of her.Our love for Calypso is eternal We will never forget her.We miss her so much. I wish I could turn back the hands of time and we would start all over again. We are not together the way we use to be.We're still connected in a way no eyes can see. We will go on and on.
It's 21 years later and sadness still over comes me as it did on Dec 20,1998. The month of December each year is very difficult time for me.
We will always love and miss Calypso.
