|Casey passed at 4:20 this afternoon. I carried her in my arms wrapped in a blanket and she didn't fuss or try to get away. She was weak and frail and so silent. I knew yesterday that today I was letting her go. I got up early this morning and cuddled with her on the couch and cried my eyes out.
I had to go to a meeting this morning and I was just praying that she would wait for me to return so she wouldn't be alone when she made her journey. She was so tired. when we left the vet's office we went to the market and as we walked thru the aisles, my husband said listen, it's Casey's song. It was the song, "How Far from Heaven" by los lonely boys and although the lyrics don't apply, the title does and I would like to think that it was Casey asking for directions to the Rainbow Bridge. I broke down and flooded the aisle with my tears.
We bond so deeply with our pets...and they are so much a part of our lives. The pain we feel when we have to let go hurts so much but of course it would because they give so much of themselves to us.
She has nothing but sunny days ahead for her at the Rainbow Bridge.
thank you kitties for all your words. Good Journey Casey!
