Love to Lilly

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Dear Lilly,

I remember two years ago today how shy and scared you were in a strange new place with new people and things. Before us your life had been a whirlwind of terror living as a stray. We don't know much about your past, but we do know your sad look in that Petsmart cage won your mommy over and she just had to have you. Daddy wasn't willing at first, but with time he too began to see your sweetness and let us take you home.

Over time you learned it was ok not to hide under the bed and you began to make our bedroom your new home. you slept with mommy every night next to her pillow and took the name "Lillow Pillow" with grace and dignity. We'll never forget the day 5 months after living with us when you felt safe enough to venture out of the bedroom. Leaps and bounds of trust were broken that day and we knew you loved us then.

Ebony although she may not show it misses you I am sure. You took her torturing you so well. She loved to pretend to give you kisses and then smack you right in the head. I know you probably didn't find it very funny, but you never once hit back, hiss, or bit your younger sister. You were always so even tempered.

These past 3 weeks have been the hardest on your mommy. What she thought was a routine teeth checkup turned out to be the worst news she could get. Cancer. Advanced Cancer that couldn't be healed. All we wanted to do was to make you better. We tried our hardest. We fought the fight. YOU fought the hardest. But the cancer won in the end.

We hope you understand that ending your pain was the best thing to do. We hope you jumped over that RB and made lots of friends right away. Mommy will miss your pacing the couch and continually giving headbutts to anyone in your path. She'll miss not having you next to her pillow tonight. But she knows you are in a better place. We'll be hanging up the picture your grand-mommy painted of you very soon so we'll always remember the special place you had in our hearts.

Rest well my sweet Lilly girl. We love you so much.

Awww Beryl, that was a wonderful tribute to Beryl. It seems like just the other day I remember you bringing her home and then stressing about her hiding. I'm sorry that she's gone but I know you made the right decision and she's at peace now, looking down on you all.

Sending my very deepest sympathies to you, Beryl; if I could, I'd give you a big hug. It sounds as if Lilly had a truly wonderful life with your family. I know what an emptiness you're feeling now. You gave us a lovely tribute to your dear Lilly. Please take comfort in knowing you did what was best for her. I'm so, so sorry for your loss.

I'm so very sorry that Lilly had to go through this. You've given her the best possible gifts though, a warm safe home, all the love in your heart and finally the gift of letting her go when it was time.

I'm so sorry to hear this. As hard as it is to let go and say goodbye, know that you did all you could for this sweet baby, she was much loved, and isn't suffering.

Beryl, that was such a beautiful and loving tribute to your sweet girl . She doesn't have to fight any more and can now play and run and live at the RB in peace. You absolutely did the right thing for your sweet girl and there is no doubt in my mind that she is looking down on you now, purring and sending headbutts your way. I hope this helps with your pain- you gave your kitty the ultimate gift of compassion and love .

What a beautiful tribute to your beatiful girl. I have tears streaming down my cheeks. I read your earlier post and was so hoping you would have more time with her. The portrait your mom painted is magnificent and such a special keepsake of your Lilly.

Conforting vibes coming your way in this time of loss.

Run free at the RB Lilly, my Lily Belle is there and will greet you with love.

Aww Beryl, I can't believe she's gone. I remember so well when you got her, and how you worried when she hid under the bed for so long.

You wrote a beautiful tribute for your girl who was taken far too soon.
