Memories of Rufus
Rufus 10/25/2001 to 4/15/2012 Diana 10/5/2012 to 3/22/2013

To my Rufy Dufy, I loved you from the first time i saw you, i am so glad you came into my life, you are and always will be my sweet Rufy Dufy Goofy Guy, always. Over the years you have made me laugh and play, you are the love I never knew I was missing. My heart is broken and i don't know how to do this with out you. I miss you so so very much. The house is so empty now, I know i should be happy your at the bridge and your all better,no more sickness no more pain, ur running and playing with all your new playmates but i want you here with me, I know that sounds so selfish, and I'm sorry I just miss you so.. I'm suppose to be telling the memories I have of you, but there are so many. I know one thing, if i would of known it was going to hurt this much i'd do it all over again. I love you Rufus more then any words can say.. I wanted us to have more time, there was so many thing I wanted to show you, so many things I was hoping to do with you... I'm sorry for all the things I didnt do with you, I'm mostly sorry for not being able to make you better, not being able to bring you home. My heart has never felt this kind of pain.. You, Rufus, are the one thing I will never be able to get over. I will never love like I love you, My Rufy Dufy Goofy Guy, Thank you for letting me be your mommy...

To my Beautiful Diana, I know the second I found you under that car all dirty and scared you belonged with me. And you let me know I was right cuz you didn't leave my side. You are so beautiful my girl, as you know I only had one kitty before you and that as many years ago I was always a dog person till you. You showed me love and kindness and a love I never new I was missing a love that to this day warms my heart. I found you October, 5 2012 and I lost you in the early morning hour of March, 22 2013. I don't know what you were doing way out in the street we think you must of followed daddy cuz he had walk to the corner store like a half an hour before Mary and Manny found you all alone laying in the street. I will never forget that night they came back from McDonalds, Mary was crying and said she thinks you were died, hit by a car, I fell to my knees begging God not to let it be you. Wen daddy and I got to were you where I knew it was you just by your beautiful color fur. I ran in the middle of the street and scooped you up in my arms, you were still so warm but your body was limp and I knew you where gone. I am so mad and bitter and hurt. How can any human being be so heartless and just hit you with there car and just keep going not even stop. I will never understand why I only got to be your mommy for only 5 short months I thought I would have many years with you I am so sorry that night I found you I promised you that you would never be alone again I promised you I would always take care of you and always be there for you.. And I failed you, you were all alone when you went to the rainbow bridge. You layed there in the street and you were all alone I am so so sorry Diana I will never forgive myself for not protecting you for not being there, I am so sorry.
Its ben a little over a year you are at the bridge with Rufus but the pain I feel from losing you both is just as deep as it was the day you both left. For as long as I live I will never understand why, why dose this happy, why God takes you so suddenly, you and Rufus but I wll wen we see each other again. I look forward to that day we are all together again. I will write you some more tomorrow well I will write you both more tmorrow until then, I send you both all my love always, your mommy forever xoxox Diana 10/5/2012 to 3/22/2013
