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.
Wow! Moms, you wouldn't believe how beautiful Home is! One minute I was looking through the mist and then I saw the most beautiful Rainbow and a Bridge. On the other side of the Bridge Katy and BG were beckoning me to join them along with other kitties..Nina, Joe, Maxine and so many others including Friskie Moolie Moo and all of Sidni's furbabies. And there were doggies too, Jamie and Daffodil, Benny, Amy, Koby, Butch and so many others. I wasn't afraid though. I started walking and looked back and couldn't see my back legs and then I realized that I was walking just like I used to. I started to run with purpose just like I used to, and within seconds I was between Katy and BG, and they were giving me all kinds of whisker kisses and welcoming me Home.
I looked back kinda' wistfully 'cuz I didn't see you coming with me, and Katy said, "It's all right. They'll be along in a little while. In the meantime we're going to be their special angels" and then I saw my beautiful angel wings just like theirs. Thank you for helping me come to this most beautiful place. No more insulin for diabetes...no more methimazole for hyperthyroidism...no more dragging my back legs...no more arthritis of the spine. I'm young again and can run and play. Thank you for taking such good care of me while I was with you. I couldn't have had better mommies.
There were three others at the Bridge to meet me...St. Francis, my gorgeous guardian angel and Bastet, the Queen of all kitties. I feel so privileged. Please don't feel so sad. I miss you both too but we'll be together again, and in the meantime I'll hold you in my kitty heart and you hold me in your mommy hearts and all is well.
Please tell Dr. Ballard and Michele that what they did for me was to release me from my body which was so very tired, and I went to sleep just like always, with my head on your hand and thigh, Mommy Clare, and woke up here! That was so neat. Thank Dr. B and Michele for me, 'k?
Well, I think I'll take a nap now in the lap of my guardian angel. Well, maybe not the lap but alongside with my head on her lap. It's so peaceful here. And there must be a pair of athletic shoes here somewhere to use as a pillow sometimes! You know how much I love athletic shoes!
6/13/13 at 1:51 p.m. To all our loving friends and family who stood with us through our Tashi's passing, please know how much we love you and cherish your friendship and caring. She slipped away so peacefully at 12:30 p.m. One of our dear friends said that if the passing is peaceful, then it was meant to be. And so it was! She was so tired. We couldn't ask her to stay with us here any longer. We know that one day we'll be together again with the most gorgeous kitty of da' world, our precious Tashi (chocolate chip punkin cookie), Katy (sugar cookie) and our BG (Da' Beej) and there will be no more separation. Their sweet presences fill our hearts and home, and the newest angel is tucked deep in our hearts forever and always.
To Dr. Ballard and Michele, thank you for coming to our home and helping our precious little girl go Home. It means more than you know. God bless you both for your compassionate caring.
And to one and all, we love you soooooo much, and we will all be together again with our precious ones one day in God's time. Until then, rest well, little ones...we love you to the moon and back. Your mommies
6/14/13 - You have many dear friends who have signed your book and love you very much. When I, Mommy Clare, got up this morning, I went looking for you to say "This is the day that God has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Mommy loves you and God loves you and that's the best." And I couldn't find you. Then I looked in my heart and there you are! Your sweet presence, along with Katy's and BG's, fill our hearts and home with comfort. Just remember that you are loved forever and always and we'll all be together when it's time. We love you with all our hearts, all three of you. Your mommies
6/20/13 - Dearest Tashi, you've been at the Bridge for a week, and we still look for you to come from your bedroom, walking so purposefully.
