My hope is that you are reading this or can at least hear me talking to you as I write this.
I miss you so much already!
I keep waiting for the phone to ring and to hear your voice on the line saying, "mama, bring me home with my kitties and you please". Well, you are truly home now but, not with the kitties and me. You are truly home, with our Heavenly Father and I know that Star was waiting to greet you with open arms and you two are together again. I hope and pray that I am taking care of things the way you wanted them to be.
Your kitties are with me and I will keep them and love them, until it is their time to cross the Rainbow Bridge to join you.

I am so very grateful to God, that He chose me, to care for you, over these last few years and to be with you as you transitioned, from this life into your life in Heaven. I pray that I was helpful in making the transition a painless, comfortable and happy one.

I am sending all my love to your family and friends, that are saddened and grieving, that you are no longer here with us on Earth. I am praying for Our Lord, to wrap His Loving Arms around them and Comfort them.

I also pray that you are now longer in pain and are dancing the Waltz, with your Beloved Star. Save a dance for me, for we shall meet again in The Eternal Kingdom.

My God Bless your eternal soul.
