Around the same time we lost our dog I recently found out we also lost our mothers kitty of about 17 years of age. She had gotten very sick. A very kind PSW were my mother was took Toffee in as none of us could. The last 6 months of her life were surrounded by a new loving family and lots of good care. As my daughter put it and it is beautiful. The circle is now complete. Toffee is back with my mother. When I loose someone in my life I work with my photos,somehow it just helps me get through. Remembering the good times and the sad ones. We are left behind to come to terms with the loss and we all have our own way and take how ever long to get on with our lives. For some it is tougher than others. One loss is bad enough,here we have had 5 plus a raccoon that lay for over 30 hours in my yard dying and I could get no help for it. Making it 6 deaths in 6 months. Another horrible story I wont get into. My mother was very proud of my son Jeff,he is pictured here with her and Toffee showing Grandma his first conservation award of 4. My kids and grandchildren make me proud,and that is what I must focus on now. Life goes on.Who knows I may even stay up to see 2013 come in this year. I am usually passed out by then. But this year has not been good and I am looking forward to a new and better year ahead.
