She was a wonderful friend for fifteen years and I was blessed to have known her.
2005It was because of her loss that I threw myself into creating a blog to fill some time.
She would have enjoyed the world of blogging and most likely had one, too.
She was a joy to know. She loved life, her family and friends, her partner, Rob and her 4 cats. She gave much of her time to cat-rescue and was the Director of Fundraising for our local animal shelter when I met her. She was very kind to all animals. She was a successful and respected social-worker for the last ten years of her life. She was a good friend. She passed away at age 52. I still miss her to this day.
In the last 4 years we have sadly lost 4 of our beautiful cats to one disease or another. Christine knew and loved each and every one of them. In 2010 we lost our darling Maggie at the age of 18; 2012 our sweet Ginny who was 23 & beautiful Cali at 19 and then 2013 we said "farewell" to our handsome boy, Ed at age 25.
And now we live with our 4 remaining felines.
So today I think of my friend Christine and will be filled with a mix of emotions; sadness, joy and thanks to have had such a wonderful friend to share fifteen years of my life.
I miss ya, Chris.
