Arrival Story:
Salem was born in our horse barn. Her mother kept taking her out in a pasture and leaving her so I picked her up and brought her in the house when she was 5 weeks old. She always had health issues but was active and seemed happy. She traveled everywhere with us vacations, horse shows etc and loved to sit on my shoulder and watch the miles go by. She was with us when we bought our first RV a Fifth wheel then both of our motor homes. She loved to lay on the dash on her blanket and would chase the squeegee when we stopped and Dad would clean the windows. She loved to travel and was at the door when she saw the MH being pulled down to the house to be loaded up. She traveled to 19 states in her short 8 yrs of life. At home she kept the other cats in line, she was the queen of the house and when she felt it was bed time at night would sit at the top of the stairs and meow until I came up then she would hop on my pillow and go to sleep. She would also demand her lap time from Dad, she always decided when and how long. She has left a huge hole in our hearts and we miss her so much.

Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Cat

Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Cat
I have little in the way of material things to leave, only my love and magic which I leave to all who have loved me.
To my Friend, I know will mourn the my companions...I ask them to remember me always but not to grieve for me too long. Let them remember that no
cat was ever happier but I have grown ill and pained. It is time to say "Good-Bye." I accept this part of the journey as a natural part of life.
What will come to me after death? I would like to think that I will be joined by companions I've known in life. I will romp in ice-filled fields and every hour will be mealtime. I will spend long evenings in front of fireplaces with logs forever burning and curl up with memories of the love of my special person.
One last request I make. I ask my friend, for the love of me, to have another. No cat can be as distinguished and handsome as I was, but my friend must not ask the impossible.
To that new cat, I've left my handmade Afghan throw and "stairway to the stars" climbing post. I leave him my place on the window perch which I loved so much, and wish him a long, sunny afternoon of snoozing and bird watching.
A few last words, Dear Heart. I have loved you completely and no matter how deep I sleep I shall hear you. Remember that Angels are not allowed to show their wings on earth, though there's no rule against whiskers!

The Greatest Gift
Karla M. Bertram, 11/23/96

I always knew this time would come,
From the very instant our eyes first met.
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then and I keep that promise now . . .
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal; You will not know
the loss of a life remembered, now gone.

It is for me alone to make this decision, The price for the bright
joy and pure laughter You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time.
When my hope dies, and my fears ride high, Just when I need you most,
I must let you go.

It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready.
For without your guidance, I will not know When to lay my grief, my
guilt, my anger, My sorrow and my selfish heart aside And give you
this last gift, this greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.

The pain of this moment is excruciating.
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow, And my heart drowns
in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken, and I have listened, And unlike other decisions
I have made.
This one brings no relief . . . no comfort . . . no peace.

For if there's one thing you've taught me, If there's only one thing
I've learned. . . .
Unconditional love has a condition after all, I must be willing to
let you go, when you speak to me I must be willing to help you go, if
you cannot go alone.
And I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.

Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find your strength, go find your youth.
You are free to leave me know, free to let your spirit soar Rest easy
now, your pain will soon be gone.

I pray I will find comfort in my memories . . .
In the dark and lonely days ahead.
I cannot say I will not miss you, I cannot say I will not cry.
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But, I promise you this: as long as I live, You will live, alive in
my mind, forever in my heart.

So I give you this last gift, all I have left to give, And this will
be my greatest gift . . . sending you away.
It is the measure of my unconditional love . . .
For only the greatest love can say,
"Good-bye, go find the bridge, we'll meet again, Loving you has been
the greatest gift of all."
