This photo that I keep on my sidebar was taken the last day I spent an afternoon with my friend, Christine.
The wonderful hospice that cared for her for the last three months of her life was only streets away from a home I grew up in. We drove over after and I wanted to walk up the familiar road. I remember being consumed with grief knowing her fight was coming to an end. I met this precious little cat on that afternoon and she made me feel very welcomed. She was a pastel calico; grey, peach and white.
"Hello there"It was 2 years ago, Feb. 8 that my friend, Christine passed away at the age of 52 from ovarian cancer. She is missed every day by her friends and her family and her 4 cats, Oliver, Jimmy, Pauly & Zoe.
There are times that I think of her and all I can do is smile. She had the best smile.
Today I shed tears for her.
I have a note written by her during her struggle and today I read it again.
"I hope you know I appreciate you - I do. I have loved being your friend.
I want you to enjoy peace, sweetness and light, always"
I miss her everyday.
