Every now and then, I type up messages to McCartney and post them at his residency at Rainbow Bridge and thought I'd share what I added:
7/11/2018 - Hey McCartney! Hope you're doing ok. Today, July 11, is always a tough day. Four years ago I lost you, my sweet boy. You were my baby. My shadow. My companion. My healer. My cuddler. My playmate. My friend. You are still all of these things, and now you're also my guardian angel. You were taken young and so abruptly, and that hole will forever be in my heart until I meet you again.
Today I am wearing the charm bracelet I made in memory of you. Tonight I'm going to light a candle for you, and I've been thinking about you all day. I wish you were here in my arms right now. That's where you belong. But for now, you can be in God's arms until I get there. I love you, boy!
Many moments I spend thinking of you,
Crying and smiling again and again.
Can't believe your passing is true,
Although our friendship still will never end.
Rewinding time is something I wish,
To hold you and watch you be so clever.
No longer can I give you a real kitty kiss,
Even so, you'll always be my treasure and
Years from now, we'll be together forever.
You certainly are my treasure. I love you, my best friend and guardian angel.
