My friend EDGAR from Olde Furts wrote a beautiful poem for my Bridge Crossing Day. The poem makes my *big sis* cry each time she reads it but that's ok:
"A mighty huntress,
Fierce and brave,
To a young boy,
Her heart she gave.
Through the field they'd
Run with joy,
And her boy.
A day came when
They had to part
But that could not
Break her stout heart.
Callie knew someday
She'd see her boy again
Until that time, she'd just recall
How happy they had been.
And she was right the day did come,
And her heart was filled with joy!
The mighty huntress Callie
Was reunited with her boy!
Together forever and
Always they'll be,
The boy and the kitty cat
The boy in the poem is my human sister's youngest brother and my human brother. It was 27 years ago today that my boy, who was only 21 years old, went to heaven. I followed him a year later. Big sis doesn't remember the exact day I joined my boy but it was in July 1983. She celebrates my crossing day on the same day as my boy's day because we were so close and it makes her happy to think of us together forever.
Thank you Edgar for your thoughtfulness and kindness in remembering me today with such a lovely and special poem!
Thank you Daisy (In Loving Memory) for the ice cream cone! Daisy is my family's very special pup friend. She knows I terrorized dogs when I was on earth (and still do a little bit here at the Bridge - hehehe!) and she still tolerates me and for some reason likes me anyway (although she does tend to say what she has to say and then turn tail and run! MOL!)
Thank you Hooch for the heart. Hooch is also a special friend of my family. My family purrs for him and I keep watch over him from the Bridge.
Thank you Zack, My Angel, Harry, Riley, Hannah & family (aka The Texas Wild Bunch), also dear and special friends of my family, for the Planet Earth.
And thank you angel Crystal for the lovely pawmail with the cute kitty picture and to my well wishers in Olde Furts and Rainbow Bridge Angel Babies!
