Today Rita died. I knew she was ill and visited her yesterday at the hospital. She was only semi-conscious but I know she knew I was there. I could tell by her little smile.
Lilly is close by me tonight and I want her to know that the woman who saved her from a terrible death when she was a kitten many years ago died today and that I will treasure having her with me even more now.
"Thank you Rita for saving her and so many others and for always putting a smile on my face. You were a treasure and a savior for so many animals. I know God has something special for you to do in heaven. Rest in Peace now."
