Dear Erin, First, I welcome you to this healing place where I know you will find the understanding and comfort you need. I'm so terribly sorry to hear about your loss, and how traumatic it was for you to witness sweet little Sigmar's rapid decline. It is absolutely normal for the feelings of loneliness and sorrow to continue for a while. All of us here will do all we can to help you find the smiles again. In the mean time, allow yourself to grieve. Let the tears flow. All tears are healing tears. They help to wash away the sorrow and allow the first buds of happiness to blossom in our hearts. I promise you ~ in time, the happy memories will come to you before the ones of the end of Sigmar's time with you, and in time those happy memories will crowd out the sad ones all together. Bless you and your husband for opening your hearts and your home to Sigmar when he needed to find love. Although his time here was so short, he knew a lifetime of love while he was with you. He received such excellent care, and he knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he was your kitty and not just a throw-away stray who had to fight for every bite of food and every warm minute's sleep. What a blessing! Please come back and tell us more about life with Sigmar and the huge paw prints he left in your hearts. He is your special angel, and he lives forever in spirit and in your hearts. I promise. I know that my Bridge Kitties have welcomed him with open wings, and they will help him learn how to send you signs and visit you in your dreams, so you can see him all grown up and healthy for eternity.
You, your husband, and your sweet Angel Sigmar are all in my thoughts and prayers.
My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)
