You are simply the best!

Thank you so much, to everyone who stopped by or emailed and to everyone who honored Winnie on their blogs. Losing Win hit me so much harder than I ever expected - and I expected it to be rough. Your thoughtful words made me smile through the tears. Our little community never ceases to amaze me with your caring and your love. I am still responding to the many emails that were sent to us, too. Unfortunately, I get kind of emotional so the going is slow... and I want you to know I've read and cherish each one, even if I haven't responded yet.

The girls and I are trying to get back to a regular routine. I hosted our family's Thanksgiving, and that alone kept me busy (in a good way) for days. And turkey anticipation was a welcome respite for the ladies, who have also felt the kitteh size hole that Win's departure has left in our lives. The auditors left yesterday at work, and I am hoping to get back to regular posting and visiting soon. I have missed you all, so very much.

All my love,
Lisa

Thank you to Jan and the CB for this lovely photo:

  9. I remember how hard it was when Floyd left - I know we all go through these things differently but I know what you mean about the reading the emails and crying. I still get that way. And I am so sad that Winnie had to leave you - but you gave her a wonderful, loving life and that is something to be cherished.

  11. Oh, I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost touch with you for awhile, and didn't know about Winnie until now.

    She was such a precious girl and together you brought so much to each others' lives.

    You gave her a wonderful life and the best passing possible. No kitty could ask for more.

    My thoughts are with you during your time of grief. Winnie's free, but you still carry the burden of her absence. Listen for her, though, and I'm sure you'll hear her around you now and then.
