Memories of Candy

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My dear Candy,

A year ago this evening, I had to say goodbye to you, after almost 15 years of your companionship. Though I still remember you vividly, and miss you so much, as any of us who’ve lost a family member, a close friend or a dear pet know, things do get easier as time passes. That said, when these losses occur so close to forever important dates (like Christmas), the memories and pain seem to remain stronger longer.

Because we celebrated Christmas early and away from home, I didn’t decorate this year. The Christmas tree you loved to lay under didn’t get put up. However, I did finally buy that new tree I’ve been wanting for a couple of years on Christmas Eve (on sale). Of course, I wanted to make sure everything was OK, so we erected it immediately. I didn’t dig out all the ornaments, but I had one new, special ornament ready to hang, and it was the first one on the new tree. It is a photo ornament with your picture in it, laying on the tree skirt as you always loved to do. I’ll always be able to see you under the tree when I decorate it for all the years to come.

Candy, I feel you watching over me as you live on in my heart. I’ll love you forever, my little friend.

Ginny

What a touching, thoughtful letter to your Candy. The decoration that you made for her is a beautiful tribute. May she live forever in your heart and may she play happily over the Bridge waiting for the day to come when you will be together forever. Rest in peace, Candy.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments. It is amazing how it helps to communicate with everyone here who understand such feelings of loss.

I finally got around to making a sig picture of Candy and getting it set-up here. It's kind of like "the cobbler's kids go barefoot" - I work in graphic arts, but don't seem to have time for my own stuff!!! (How many digital photos do I need to print - after I retouch or color correct them?? Too many!!!)

Anyway, this picture is the one I put on her Christmas tree ornament - taken of her on the tree skirt under the Christmas tree, where she loved to lay the whole season it was up.

Love you all . . .

Such a beautiful kitty I love the ornament idea - it is something that would mean so much to someone who has lost a loved one. The holidays are the hardest, I know, but thankfully, with TCS we are not alone to deal with our sadness...And our TCS kitties who have passed have each other, and all of Heaven, to keep themselves occupied till we get to be reunited again.
