Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me, I once was blind but now I see, was lost but now I am found, twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved...when we've been there ten thousand years we've no less grace to sing God's praise, bright shining as the sun.
This is the song my mom sang while my husband and I buried sweet moma Ivey. I have always loved it and the words always touch my heart. My girl was saved and her fears were relieved when she came to live with us, she was blind to what the love of a family was like and then she experienced it. Now she is bright shining as the sun with all the angels. I know I will see her again, I trust that all my babies will be there waiting in heaven for me and one day we will be reunited. Her frail tired body has been laid to rest on the family farm, behind the well shed near the old sycamore tree, with skids kitty, and alley. Her "daddy" built her a little kitty casket so she had a proper burial, I am so thankful she was not alone on the streets when it was time for her to fly.
Love you and I miss you my sweet little moma Ivey kitty.

This made my typist tear up a little - we are so glad that momma Ivey finally got a home and we know she is waiting for you.
Ditto what Jez said.
A touching song, too by the way.
Looks like a comfortable resting place for you, Ivey.
Dear Moma Ivey's Mom and Dad,
I salute you with POTP for being Earth Angels to Moma Ivey and your furs. Moma Ivey will always be for me, a fellow traveller along the path. She's just a little further along. She came in from the cold, she knew a true home, and she got to reunite with her own fur children. She completed her mission here, she took a leap up and just kept going...
Moms eyes are leaking again. I better go do something funny to distract here.
Thank you for bringing Moma Ivey in from the cold. And yes, she was...and Is home.
We feline spirits may dance but a short time with you...but it's time well spent.
POTP to you, Momma Ivey's family. We believe that we WILL see each other again, as our souls are now intertwined.
Momma Ivey, you had a hard life, sweetie. But for the last few months, you were loved, and you knew it. Rest easy, gentle soul, til you are with your family again

I love you and I always will and the compassion and love you showed me while I was living on earth will not be forgotten and it did not go unnoticed by God.
My mom has leaky eyes right about now.
