Goodbye, Tiny Boy.

William crossed over late yesterday, his final journey.

I simply have no words to express the depth of my heartfelt thanks for the compassionate messages you all have left over the last several days. Each has helped beyond measure, and I am deeply grateful for your kind devotion. It's comforting to know he was loved by so many beyond us.

We will feel the very large void left by this little cat for some time, but we'll be back when our tears have dried and our hearts begin to mend.

  1. Hugs and love from all of us. We understand, completely.

  2. Much love to you. William was a fine and noble cat, and he was blessed beyond measure to have found you.

    It is good to know you will be back with us when you are ready, as we love you and will always want to know what's up with you and Elliott and Screamoline (Many kisses, LCG!), the very handsome Ivan and the Orinch Menace. William taught them well.

    We will always keep William in our hearts.

  20. There is still so much, too much, to sort out about a loss, a sorrow. Words cannot capture the heartache, or make sense of something so senseless. So I won’t try.

    This much I know.

    I know that when confronted with anguish we cannot comprehend, we pull together and embrace our virtual and real family more tightly.

    At a time like this, we must count our blessings. And as we do, we come to be reminded that the depth of our grief also reveals the depth of our love and our resolve.

    Farewell for now Sweet WMD, until we meet again.

  21. Dear friend William we will never forget you and will love you always. We know your siblings were there to meet you. We are not saying good bye but just "until we meet at the Bridge'

    ReplyDelete
  22. Godspeed your journey to heaven William, we are truly sorry. We send our sincerest sympathies to your family, your mom mostly, as we know how devastated she is. We will not say good bye, as we believe we all see each other again, some day....until then hugs and love from boomer, daisy, tuna; and dude and sauce too. ❤️❤️❤️

  37. So much love and tons of hugs from Orbit's dad and mom. We get so damned attached to these little creatures like we do our children. This got me teared up again, and most likely especially because William and Orbit share the same handsome looks. Just know that so many of us are right there with you in sadness, and we're all thinking of you at this terribly sad time. I tried reading this post to my wife and couldn't just now without choking up like a baby. Hang in there, and take it easy.

  38. I sent my Dumpling over the bridge last Friday. I am grieving with you. As much as we know it is better for them, we miss them terribly.
