Older human sister was talking about me the other day to my human mom and younger human sister. Older sister's memories of me are the same as theirs except for one thing. Older sister thought I came to the Bridge in July 1983. My mom and younger sister told older sister she's mistaken. Older sister wasn't around during my final years and didn't learn that I'd gone to the Bridge until afterwards. Mom and younger sister were both with me when I made my journey to the Bridge. They said I left for the Bridge in February 1984. It was very cold and the ground was hard and they couldn't bury me in the back yard even though they wanted to. I lived longer than my older sister thought and was a month short of 19 years old.
Older sister associates me in her memory with her youngest brother and her grandpa. I was very close to both of them. Both passed away in the month of July and my sister thinks that's why she thought I did too. My sis observed my crossing day on July 27 this year, the anniversary of her youngest brother's death, and will continue to do so in honor of his memory and the close bond he and I had.
You are so right, memories are fragile, Mummy tries to remember everything about Rhea and I, she is so scared of forgetting a single detail.
Tilly who lives with my mummy and daddy now, has had to get use to everything being filmed or pictures taken.
Memories are forever but some memories are misplaced.
Well your mommy and family will always remember you and the love you all shared, that is the most precious memories of all, the good happy times are the easiest to remember and the best, love and purrs to you allxx
That's true Pebbles! My sis is so grateful she wrote things down about her other angels Pete, Jennifer & Abby. There were things she remembered a little differently or forgot about and reading what she wrote helped her remember. Catster and photos and videos are a very important way for our humans to remember us.
